Piedmont Nebbiolo

Marchesi di Barolo

Barolo Tradizione Nebbiolo 1947

A dark ruby core with lots of bricking. A stinky nose that’s surprisingly vibrant with tar, tart cherry, wood and a hint of madiera. High toned. On the palate, astonishingly good fruit. Mature but still quite deep and very resolved. Great balance and decent length. This isn’t profound but is an incredible testament to the ageability of Nebbiolo. Complex and fascinating. Lovely — 3 days ago

Vigneto Monvigliero Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Stunning aromatics on one of my favorite Barolo’s. So elegant & floral with cherry, strawberry & rhubarb fruits, rose petal, violets, dried herb & Indian spices with hints of tobacco, orange peel & mineral. Needs more time but so good now with a couple of hours in the decanter. — a day ago

Vigne Bric Mentina Montefico Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2013

It takes a mere four hours in the decanter for the wine to show itself, the potential that its having. Second day and the elements are even more defined and the true complexity of the wine reveals itself. This is a beauty with great potential. Red and dark cherries, fruit pips, minelrals, tar, damp undergrowth and roses. Would love to see this wine in the mid 2020’s. Rated on today’s performance — 10 days ago

Fontanafredda

Alta Langa La Cuvee

@Delectable by definition, Alta Lange DOCG must be 90% Chardonnay/Pinot Nero - either way, really enjoyed this high elevation, metodo classico sparkler - crisp acidity from the cool climate and elevation, good mouthfeel, and above average bubbles, clearly product of a high quality wine maker. Maybe not a QPR in the states but it was 10.99€ for me 🤗🤗🤗 — 9 days ago

Giacomo Fenocchio

Cannubi Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Is there a 2013 barolo with a broader range of reviews than the wines of Giacomo Fenocchio?? One reviewer says don’t bother, one reviewer says they have decades of amazement yet to come. I certainly look forward to finding out which one is right! The Giacomo Fenocchio 2013 canubbi has an elegant floral quality that is extremely appealing. There is strong spice to go along with the, at this stage, tightly wound fruit. I think there is potential for a big payoff and I look forward to seeing where this one goes over the next decade. — 9 days ago

Tenuta Pianpolvere

Riserva Pianpolvere Soprano Bussia Barolo Nebbiolo 2001

Consensus WOTN this has it all. Expressive nose of white and red flowers, coffee grounds. Completely resolved palate dominated by dark red fruit, fine, fine tannins, baking chocolate and the longest finish of the flight. Still has 5+ years. — 4 hours ago

Vietti

Castiglione Barolo Nebbiolo 2007

Vietti makes a great wine bottom line. This is their entry level Barolo and it punches above its weight. I paid $40 for this back in the day. It’s in a great place with subtle red fruit and floral notes with a hint of menthol. The finish is beautiful and lasts a few seconds. This was supposed to be a nice glass with some chicken parm for dinner instead the bottle is gone and my wife wants to know if we have more. Joy to drink. — 7 days ago

Azelia

Bricco Fiasco Barolo Nebbiolo 1999

This one also felt young to the group, and came out a bit awkward. 2 hours later it was singing, I went back to it twice. Sweet tannins at the core powered through to a long, good-tangy finish. Uncertain how long this has to go, so decant and drink up. The awkward phase scared me... — 4 hours ago

Sorì San Lorenzo Barbaresco Nebbiolo

1982 Gaja Sori San Lorenzo. Lunch at Il P w K. Could be the single best bottle of Italian wine we’ve ever had. Decanted abt an hour before drinking. It had the perfect amount of acidity and fruit, but with a sweetness that was just before being raisiny or pruney in any way. Perfect. K immediately checked to see how much more of this wine he had. — 6 days ago

Giuseppe E Figlio Mascarello

Monprivato di Castiglione Falletto Barolo Nebbiolo 2001

Restrained on the nose until late, when earthy tar and red flowers came out. Delicate, feminine, showing it’s age and drinking beautiful but feels articulated enough to get even better as only the Kings do... — 4 hours ago
