Kalamata olives, dried black cherries, baker’s chocolate, rusted jalopy, black pretzel, tar, and dried violets. Energetic aromatically; evocative of a rustic stone house with a variegated garden of herbs, and perhaps straw roofing. Plum moves forward in a good way rounding out the basket. Powdered cherry and blood orange with the finest tannins seem to liquify into a delicious balancing act between fruit and earth and herbs. Ripe plum, dried red cherries, black cherry juice, black olives, blood orange over grilled meat, sassafras, sage, tarragon, black truffle, chicory and walnut. Not a traditional pairing with Californian lamb from sustainable vineyards in Lake County, but revalatory. #Barolo #nebbiololife #nebbiololover #nebbioli #cabutto #tenutalavolta #docg #piemonte #piedmont — 2 years ago
Vintage 1955 - we had a great vertical tasting ot this #piemonte #nebbioli wine , Thanks to Eric. This 1955 was absolutely awesome to me: spicy cake, caramel, apple syrup. Velvet taste, good concentration and excellent balance. A marvelous experience to taste history. / eg all tasted blind. #blindtasting — 2 years ago
Not what I would think of as a traditional Barolo in style. Young with a lot of fruit at the beginning, joined by coffee, liquorice, spice and some earthiness. Not much tannic structure leads me to believe this is best consumed young. The 2011 was a much better example of the region and winemaker.

Gorgeous garnet exhibiting classic orange notes and the tiniest tinges of age, but the aromas of cut cherry and citrus jump from the glass! Blood orange thyme and watermelon on a grill with red currant and just a touch of cranberry and holly to keep it festive. The tar is a hovering ethereal addition that would be a side note, but it hovers like a smoky cloud that adds a dark spirit to the whole, though it feels bright and fresh. A dichotomy, but one that seems an integral part of the whole. Every sip sends your tastebuds racing in a wash of intense red raspberry, plum, violet, thyme, racy citrus and grainy cedar, silky tannin, an unobtrusive touch of vanilla and sweet tobacco! Finesse and sophistication from entry to satisfying finish. An amazing wine with endless subtleties, physically pulling you in with its seductive structure. #cascinachicco #singlevineyard #barolo #ginestra #ethereal #nebbiololife #nebbiololover #nebbioli #nebbiyolo #piedmont #piedmontwines #piemonte — 2 years ago
