Giacomo Conterno

Francia Barolo Nebbiolo 2011

An absolutely wonderful Barolo from Conterno. First time having wines from G. conterno, as far as I remember. Had with a perfect rare chianina beef florentine style steak.

If I could go back and time I’d like to redo my senior Econ thesis to better explain the difference in European and American wine list pricing at restaurants. This wine was sold for $30 less than the *release price* in the US. Really a lovely nebbiolo.

Giacomo Fenocchio

Dolcetto d'Alba 2020

Stumbling on a Dolcetto from Fenocchio is like finding a discarded sketch from DaVinci. Took a while to open up but gave hints of dark fruits. Relatively dry (despite the name) with grippy tannins. With weeknight shish taouk. — a month ago

Giacomo Borgogno & Figli

Barolo Nebbiolo 2011

This afternoon at a late lunch we were served the 2011 Giacomo Borgogno & Figli Barolo.

In the nose there was cherry, strawberry, plum, licorice, dried roses, spice, tar, ckay pot and dusty earth.

On the palate there was strawberry, cherry, raspberry, red currant, anise, spice, leather and earth.

This wine is full bodied with a smooth velvety mouthfeel medium + acidity and medium + grippy mouthcoating tannins that seemlessly move to a long red and dark fruit dusty earth finish. Definitely a nice bottle of wine and would gladly have this bottle again. We have had hot weather this week which has broke us out of the 40 and 50 degree weather. It has been definitely needed and seems to have woken everyone out of their winter malaise. I wish everyone a wonderful weekend. Please stay safe and healthy, Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Cascina Francia Barolo Nebbiolo 2003

2003 vintage. Fantastic, otherworldly nose. Still plenty of push/substance and plenty of great drinking ahead. Courtesy of @Bill Bender — a month ago
