Giacomo Borgogno & Figli

Riserva Barolo Nebbiolo 1978

On opening, I felt like this was a bit simple and fruit forward.l, but give this an hour! The color is a beautiful tawny with browning on the edges. On the nose: tar, charcoal, roses, leather, dried flowers and raspberry. On the palate, fantastic acidity, dense dried red fruit, currant, strawberry, rose, leather, charcoal, amazing complexity, and still dense tannic finish. Stunning and near perfection. — 2 days ago

Don't open all your old wines yet, this thing will be over on Easter... You'll still need some for later in life.

I wish I could open some old bottles. It’s the perfect time to enjoy them over a good meal and a good book, but, without smell what’s a wine?

Sorry to hear about your lost sense of smell. Hopefully you recover it quickly.

Azienda Agricola Brovia

La Villerina Secca Langhe Freisa 2017

I don’t hide the fact that I’m a massive fan of Brovia and their Freisa which they produce in a dry, still style is among my favorite values in all of Piedmont. The grapes for this wine come from the Villero cru and are aged exclusively in stainless steel. Production is extremely minuscule with under 1000 bottles made per year however, tracking some down is well worth the effort. The 2017 version has aromas of dark blackberries, roses, and tar while the palate is packed with strawberries, mulberries, blueberries and dried herbs. Impressive structure with mouth-drying tannins and snappy acidity leading to a long, tongue-smacking finish. Capable of aging? Yes, and probably would be an interesting one to follow over the next five to ten years. That being said, these are really meant to be consumed on the younger side while we wait for the Barolo’s to mature 😉. This bottle was paired with the “kamikaze” lasagna we got last night from Au Courant which, as it happens, was also my source for this bottle. — 21 hours ago

Giovanni Almondo

Bric Valdiana Roero Nebbiolo 2016

Delectable Wine
9.4

The 2016 Roero Bric Valdiana is another compelling wine in this range from Almondo. Dark cherry, menthol, licorice, spice, cedar and blood orange are all laced together in a deep, flavorful Roero endowed with real character and tons of class. The 2016 needs time in bottle to shed some tannin, but it is super-impressive today. Sweet red cherry, mint, blood orange and star anise add the closing shades of nuance. There is a ton to look forward to. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, March 2020)

Gaja

Costa Russi Langhe Nebbiolo 1998

Really in a beautiful place. Definitely still give it a 1-2 hour decant, the aromas start to sing. I know this is slightly more “modern” in these late 90s years for Gaja but this still screams nebbiolo to me. Crimson in the glass, lots of dark red fruit, some eucalyptus tannins with decent acid. Aromatically beautiful and the finish is just very nice. Delicious wine. — 2 days ago

When first opened this was very primary but with air it turned into a beautiful barbaresco. Very terroir driven. Medium body with bright acidity. If you’re not on the balancedwineselection.com mailing list, I would get on it.
