Valbianchera Barbera d'Alba 2016

Very much in the vein of the 2015: black cherry, raspberry, blackberry...but a bit fresher and more chiseled. Not a tour-de-force, but more classically Barbera. Satisfying and complete. #almondo #barberadalba — 10 months ago

Bric Valdiana Roero Nebbiolo 2013

Spice box, tar, vanilla, touch of menthol. Great tension between old school/new school elements; 50% barrique, but not overdone or slick. Another fantastic '13 Piemonte wine! #roero #almondo #nebbiolo #piemonte — 3 years ago

Fosso della Rosa Brachetto

Vinified in small batches, sur commande. Explosive aromas and flavors of wild fraises. Pure and direct. Excellent acidity, balanced, bursting with freshness, 5% alcohol. The ultimate summer wine. #almondo #brachetto #piemonte — a year ago

Valbianchera Barbera d'Alba 2015

Black fruits, new oak, star anise, vanilla bean. Explosive; medicinal concentration and the kind of finish that only comes from century-old vines. Extraordinary. #almondo #barberadalba — 2 years ago
