Sizzano Nebbiolo Vespolina 2018

Lighter neb, cherries and violets, really enjoyable. Reminds me of some of the wines in the old days when they called it spanna. I really like the more northern Nebbiolo wines better than the regions further south — 14 days ago

This Sizzano is an unreal value!

Boca Nebbiolo Blend 2010

Great example of what a Spanna from Alto Piemonte can be. Volcanic soil, traditional process and a great family. Red berries orange peel mint plenty of acid and low alcohol lightens the package. The bottle went empty quickly. — 4 months ago

Boca Nebbiolo Vespolina 2016

Nose: sweet roses and cherries. Intense and beautiful. So floral

Palate: sweet cherries. A bit right but so lovely and balanced. Juicy. Still young. Has a decade to go at least.

Needs an hour. Then magnificent. The 20% vespolina just takes this over the top.

Almost a 9.6. A perfect boca.

Le Piane

Boca Nebbiolo Blend 2017

Amazing and unusual Piedmontese wine. At first was exposing tobacco and paper, then with small sips left in the glass with cranberries, and the fuller glass after breathing with deeper flowers and berry notes — 3 months ago

Vigna Cavenago Riserva Ghemme Nebbiolo Vespolina 2015

9.6

Such an amazing wine. Nose is soaring with almost hallucinogenic levels of spice and tobacco. Such a wide spectrum. So good. Dried roses. Some cherry peeking through. Sweet spices coming through as well. Juicy and tannic but man oh man is this concentrated, fierce and burly but all in proper balance. What a finish. Huge tannins but air will mellow. I’ll be back.

Wow after a day open this is completely harmonious like an orb on the palate and has that super elegance that is rare in Ghemme. 9.5 to 9.6.

al forte Coste della sesia Rosso 2018

What a great example of the region the way the additions of Croatina and Vespolina complement the Nebbiolo all grown on the acidic volcanic soil of the region. Red berry flowers mint. Very alpine feel. Plus built to drink early. — 5 months ago

Colombera & Garella

Cascina Cottionano Bramaterra Nebbiolo Blend 2020

Bright acid, tart cranberry, thin and little tannin. Sage or pine finish very herby. Easy with food but stands out by itself. — 6 months ago
