Inferno Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo 2013

Nebbiolo has such beautiful properties but it’s intense and usually needs the defense of a ribeye or something equivalent. If you love quieter wines, and if you love the flavors and aroma of Nebbiolo, Inferno is for you.

It has the salts and minerality of Etna and the musty dusty fruit of Piedmont. It’s cool with dark cherries and roses and old leather. Extremely moderate tannins all considering.

Riserva Rocca de Piro Grumello Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo 2011

Slight spicy, mushrooms and very earthy. Dark cherry, juicy, little acid no tannin. Slight alc burn. Spicy really comes through. "There's a lot going on in this wine" — 12 days ago

Riserva Buon Consiglio Grumello Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo 2005

Excellent. Smoke, cherry, and a redwood forest like note. Super soft but present tannins and acid is still bright. Very grateful for this one. — 22 days ago

9.3

Superb wine. Nose of spice, tar, roses, fresh sawdust, sour cherries and mid season cherries. Gorgeous open and mesmerizing aromas. Palate is gorgeous. Concentrated and so juicy with a wonderful spherical quality and such purity. Mid season cherries and such wonderful freshness and length. Really great length. Stunner. — 24 days ago

Riserva Vigna Regina Sassella Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo 2012

YES! I tried this a few weeks ago and fell in love. It is delicate, feminine and Nebbiolo at its most subtle. Cranberry, plum, orange and dusty tannins. Showing great right out of the gate but know this has a few (many) years left to impress. — 19 days ago
