Ronchi Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2016

Delectable Wine
9.5

The 2016 Barbaresco Ronchi, the estate’s top selection, marries elegance with power so well. Freshly cut flowers, mint, sweet red berries, anise and blood orange confer freshness that plays off the wine’s dense, expansive fruit. A rush of sweet raspberry, cherry and rose petal punctuates the exuberant finish. The 2016 is a fabulous wine from a property that has been on the ascent in recent years.

Ciauria Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese 2016

My best btl so far...very sad it's my last as this showed clear improvement with age. On the nose: so etna, with wild, slighty gamey strawberry, a soft melon note, and an airy stony character. On the palate, fantastic acidity, gooseberry, watermelon, ripe strawberry..so soft and light, but simultaneously so dense. Soft tannic grip.on the juicy finish. An absolutely lovely btl. — a month ago

N'Anticchia Etna DOC Rosso Nerello Mascasele 2013

Pop and pour, should have given this more air as it improved with each minute open. On the nose: pure wild strawberry, saffron, sweet melon, soft vanilla, and a touch of funk. On the palate: excellent acidity, more wild strawberry, sweet tomato paste, lovely light touch, with a surprising density, and a hi-toned cola and strawberry finish, rounded out by very finely grained tannin. — 9 days ago

Barolo Nebbiolo 2012

Smooth, well balanced, velvet, easy to drink, medium body, light tannins. Beautiful old world grapes make this one of the most drinkable Italian wines we’ve ever had. Pairs especially well with Cacio e Pepe and other higher fat content pastas. — 21 days ago
