Cantina del Signore

La Crotta Spanna Coste della Sesia Nebbiolo 2015

A lighter and fresh styled Nebbiolo but with classical characteristics. Nose features zippy, sappy cherries, fragrant gravelly earth, and rose water. More savory flavors come out in the palate, which gives a lot of up-front stony minerality and bitter cherry. Cleansing acids then take over. — 5 days ago

Love this stuff

Giacomo Conterno

Cascina Francia Barolo Nebbiolo 2004

What a wine. We let it decant for a solid two hours. I was expecting something lighter but nothing subtle here- full flavor of red fruit and tar. You had some spice, little smoke and mineral then some floral notes as it dat in the glass. A lot of depth in this wine and it has a silky silky smooth finish. — 6 days ago

Torraccia del Piantavigna

Ghemme Nebbiolo Blend 2001

Fantastic bottle aged Nebbiolo from the secret Smerik stash at Solare. Purity and power, rose and tar, translucent brick red, velvet tannins, and a long finish. Perfect with Piemonte comfort food like Ravioli del Plin. — 5 days ago

Ca' Rozzeria

Tre Comuni Barolo Nebbiolo

Sometimes when writing I spread all my notes on the floor before me and embark on assembling something reasonable. Ca’Rozzeria is fabulous wine assembled from the metaphorically discarded to the floor goods of good producers. But the trimmings are from good producers that are loathe to part with them. And I hope my words are occasionally decent. I would not call it classic Barolo but I would say it’s fantastic Nebbiolo and the price is stupid good. Okay actually structure/flavors? I’d almost guess it was Sangiovese if blinding. Ripe cherries, green herbs, balsamic vinegar...less rose more violet. 2012 was a year of leaner Barolo. Less tannins than I’d expect than Barolo but that’s totally cool seeing as I’m drinking this sitting on my kitchen floor working. — 20 hours ago

@Paul Treadway Huntington Beacher Bum if you spread your notes out first it’s an automatic clean up situation. Provided you can still read the notes when they dry

Podere Rocche dei Manzoni

Vigna Cappella di Santo Stefano Barolo Nebbiolo 1997

At 21 years it’s big, bold, tarry. Took an hour decant to show off some roses and leather, beautiful core of fine-grained tannins engulfed in sweet oak and a mineral-driven dark cherry. Outstanding, years to go. — 2 days ago

I’ve had even more luck with the less heralded ‘96 Barolos, but both superb

Podere ai Valloni

Vigna Cristiana Boca Nebbiolo Blend 2010

Nose is gorgeous cherry, cherry flowers and some pine. Don’t confuse the pine with tca. It’s not. Really gorgeous unique nose. Palate is cherry juice a hint of cherry liquor and pine. Terrific brightness. This is still a baby. Needs 2 hours to get going. Has great structure. Will go for decades. Bought from Fass Selections. .. four hours in God’s roses in the nose. Exquisite. Almost sweet roses. Palate is insane. — 2 days ago

Killer stuff

Azienda Agricola Roberto Voerzio

La Serra Barolo Nebbiolo

1985 vintage La Serra. First vintage under the Roberto Voerzio label, before Roberto started to make the highest possible quality. Amazing though. Very deep colour for nebbiolo. Intense and profound, at its peak, but there's no hurry to drink this. — 5 days ago
