Gaja

Conteisa Langhe Nebbiolo 2000

The nose is very fruit-driven, no floral notes though there is a spice profile that recurs on the palate alongside the powerful dark cherry and black currants. Still a touch primary. Took on weight and gained power as it aerated in the glass, though never imbalanced. Additional mocha and some licorice notes on the expansive finish. Impressive indeed, with upside too. #drinksatantonios — 3 months ago

Diego Conterno

17 Langhe Nascetta 2017

Thought I’d start #drinksatantonios with this white wine made from Nascetta by Diego Conterno in Monforte d’Alba. It’s a luminous green-gold and has refreshing aromatics with grapefruit and other citrus fruit to the fore. It’s rounded out by lightly toasted almonds and it’s fresh on the palate but with nice weight and body. A really good example of this little known grape! — 3 months ago

Luigi Oddero

Vigna Rionda Barolo Nebbiolo 2004

This is the red I have open for today’s #drinksatantonios It is an appealing ruby red, fading to red-orange at the rim. There’s crunchy red berry fruit on the nose, underpinned by darker berry and stone fruits. It has complex balsam and pine resin, a style I really like. On the palate it’s medium weight, with grip and freshness; the tannins are somewhat mouth puckering so it’s probably best with food. Lovely wine, that’s been evolving seductively in the glass even in the time I’ve been typing this. — 3 months ago

Le Piane

Boca Nebbiolo Blend 2006

Still so fresh and lively, and as with so many Le Piane wines, it evolves so nicely in the glass. Mineral, herb, dried fruit, potpourri. Ever changing and not obscured by wood influence. #drinksatantonios — 3 months ago
