Riserva Gattinara Nebbiolo 1971

1971 surprise surprise. Didn’t expect this to show as well. I brought it back from Producer years ago. Reminds me of a great Barolo. — 13 days ago

7/2020. Nice flavor with a good finish. Easy on the palate. Well worth the retail price but not the restaurant price. Paired well with the flounder at Hall’s. — 19 days ago

Persiera Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

Wow. Just wow. Totally wow. Nose is just beyond. The finest roses in the store at their most full expressiveness. Amazing clarity and depth. Just hypnotic. Stunningly detailed cherry fruit with such clarity you want to cry. It’s so beautiful. Spices. Some tar but it’s really a cherry/rose explosion. Wow. Insane sweet fruit and density but classic Saffirio elegance and finesse. Sara Vezza has crushed the 2015 vintage. Perfect balance and just the most unreal, clear, delicate fruit. Inner mouth florals are terrific. Velvety and substantial tannins that are crammed with sweet, dark opulent fruit. Long finish. This has the guts to last 20+ years and needs maybe 7-10 years. Opposite of the regular which is ready to go now. Superb wine. — 5 days ago

This is best bottle of roccia Rossa I’ve ever had. So amazing. Nose of cigar, roses, so so old school. Licorice, mineral, loam, floral. So gorgeous, amazing sweet fruit, red and so pure. Velvety. So complex. Sweet tannins. Spices. Just so firm and insane. Amazing fruit sweet. — 12 days ago

Le Pianelle

Bramaterra Nebbiolo 2016

Nose is intense cherry and cherry lipstick. A hint of pine.

Palate is crunchy cherries. Deep dense fruit. Very delicious. Some spice.

More densely fruited than the average alto Piemonte wine.

Levi Serafina Grappa from Neive in Alba. I think it is 1998 and 53% abv. I could be wrong. Very aromatic. Herbal and complex. Strong! — 5 days ago

202 spring. I keep drinking this as you get an awful lot of character and elegance at a price that, for nebbiolo, is more than fair — 19 hours ago

9.3

A stunning opening reveals depths of ripe peach and strawberry, with hints of cumin, ginger, dried orange and roses. Silky textures tug at the cheeks as zesty acids settle in, then sooth through sweet liquid florals and ripe fruit. A blend of Nebbiolo and Vespolina. $19.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, August 2020) — 11 days ago
