Only the Italians can make wine like this: bit o fizz and off-dry but impeccable balance & charm. Blackberry, plum & licorice, hint of sweet spice, delicate & delicious. Put a chill on this - and before you know it the bottle is gone! — 5 months ago

@delectable this is the XVI. Declassified Boca Rosso from Piedmont. 55% Nebbiolo/30% Croatina/10% Vespolina/5% Uva Rara. 400m sites in the middle of the woods on porphyry-rich volcanic soils. Ivano works the vines organically and by hand, including manual harvest. The fruit is destemmed and fermented with native yeasts in stainless steel tank with a two-week maceration. The wine is aged in a single 1700-liter Austrian oak cask for one year and then for another year in bottle before release. — 19 days ago

Riserva Bramaterra Nebbiolo Blend 2001

Really wish I had more of this. I’d say a good hour decant would do this justice. The sweet dried rose petals, ripe red cherry, prune, moist leaves, damp wood, mushroom, clove and cinnamon really comes out the longer it sits. Just gorgeous. An initial juicy acidity coats the palate, then rushes down the sides of the tongue. There’s a similar tasting profile to the nose, with more cherry skin and potpourri. Hmmmm — 5 months ago
