Brunate Barolo Nebbiolo 2012

Quite aromatic and actually a lot more open than I would have expected even for a 2012 . Floral and ripe cherry fruit , licorice character as well. Still quite elegant in the mouth , lots of ripe fruit and a steak of balancing refreshing acidity. More red fruits than black , raspberry , red cherry. There is a kick for quite grippy tannins at the end though they are sweet and not out of balance . Lovely long finish with a rose and floral note. Excellent and surprisingly enjoyable straight from the bottle. — 7 days ago

Barolo Nebbiolo 1967

Faded edges. A gorgeous deep nose with brooding fruit, earthiness, leather, soft cherry, a whiff of dried old orange. The palate is good soft and broad with subtle roses and plum. A well preserved and tasty bottle. — 3 days ago

Giacomo Conterno

Cerretta Barolo Nebbiolo 2011

Quite deep and complex on the nose giving only a fraction away. Quite deep dark fruits , anise . In the mouth, lots of ripe black fruits , velvety but grippy tannins. Always the sign of a great wine is the ability to change in the glass , this has that in spades . Now becoming more floral , violets, rose . More feminine. Hugely long on the finish , with a wonderful balance of acidity , and a saline touch. Drinkable now , enjoyable , however really merits keeping to improve further a few more years. A great wine . — 6 days ago

Villero di Castiglione Falletto Barolo Nebbiolo 1988

Tawny with amber in the rims. Translucent. Throughout 7 hours this bounced around from being there to being nowhere. Notes shifted from classic Barolo with roses, tar, cherry and tea... to soy sauce and salt and a quietness. This was all over the place, up and down. It had a dryness consistent with other 88s I’ve had. Overall good not great, but had flashes of greatness. — 2 days ago

Azienda Agricola Matteo Correggia

Roero Roche d'Ampsej Riserva 2013

Medium crimson/ruby in colour. A whiff of vanilla oak amongst the earthy aromas. Sandy fine tarry tannins. Thanks to the contribution of Matteo Correggia the Roero now has DOCG status which is why this wine is in the 1001 Wines book. Just medium weight but with 100% new French oak, so a modern approach. Good accompaniment to Roast Pork for Sunday lunch. Drinking well now but would drink the next 2 bottles by its 10th birthday in 2023. — 5 days ago

Riserva Speciale Barolo Nebbiolo 1961

Totally different to the 61 G mascarello. Really dark and brooding. Plum, tobacco, balsamic, a hint of cinnamon. Very intense and broad with a succulent palate and astonishing intensity of fruit for a 57 year old wine. Layer upon layer of black cherry, leather, blackcurrant, dried herb. The Riserva Speciale. Some debate at the table if this is genuine or if something’s off with it. Outshone by the mascarello alongside. I like it. — 6 days ago
