Verduno Pelaverga 2017

More fruit and less spice than previous vintages, but always my favorite pelaverga out there - one of the treats of the Piedmont. — 6 days ago

Giacomo Conterno

Cascina Francia Barolo Nebbiolo 2004

What a wine. We let it decant for a solid two hours. I was expecting something lighter but nothing subtle here- full flavor of red fruit and tar. You had some spice, little smoke and mineral then some floral notes as it dat in the glass. A lot of depth in this wine and it has a silky silky smooth finish. — 6 days ago

La Serra Barolo Nebbiolo

1985 vintage La Serra. First vintage under the Roberto Voerzio label, before Roberto started to make the highest possible quality. Amazing though. Very deep colour for nebbiolo. Intense and profound, at its peak, but there's no hurry to drink this. — 5 days ago

Podere Rocche dei Manzoni

Vigna Cappella di Santo Stefano Barolo Nebbiolo 1997

At 21 years it’s big, bold, tarry. Took an hour decant to show off some roses and leather, beautiful core of fine-grained tannins engulfed in sweet oak and a mineral-driven dark cherry. Outstanding, years to go. — 2 days ago

97 was a stellar vintage for Barolo, great pull!

I’ve had even more luck with the less heralded ‘96 Barolos, but both superb

Ca' Rozzeria

Tre Comuni Barolo Nebbiolo

Sometimes when writing I spread all my notes on the floor before me and embark on assembling something reasonable. Ca’Rozzeria is fabulous wine assembled from the metaphorically discarded to the floor goods of good producers. But the trimmings are from good producers that are loathe to part with them. And I hope my words are occasionally decent. I would not call it classic Barolo but I would say it’s fantastic Nebbiolo and the price is stupid good. Okay actually structure/flavors? I’d almost guess it was Sangiovese if blinding. Ripe cherries, green herbs, balsamic vinegar...less rose more violet. 2012 was a year of leaner Barolo. Less tannins than I’d expect than Barolo but that’s totally cool seeing as I’m drinking this sitting on my kitchen floor working. — 15 hours ago
