Rocche di Castiglione Barolo Nebbiolo 2011

This wine pours a clear rust red. It has aromas of leather on the nose. It has flavors of dried fruit that are restrained a bit. Strong structured tannins were present which I think is a trade mark. We decanted the wine for about 90 minutes first. It went very well with the grass fed ribeyes and lobster we cooked for my son-in-law’s birthday. That said, I was expecting more. I really thought it would blow me away and it didn’t. It was good, just not great. I don’t think it was too expensive at Costco. Although I got it before I kept track of how much I paid for wines. #barolowine #nebbiolo #piedmontwines #italianwines #costcowines — 2 months ago


Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2017

Bit of a letdown with this #barbareso - quite muted aromatics, soft earthy cherry is most prominent. Nice texture on palate, decent acidity but the #nebbiolo is lacking verve here. — a year ago

Cavalier Bartolomeo

Altenasso Barolo Nebbiolo 2016

Red cherry and dried cranberry, rose petal, cherry lozenge, cedar, cherrywood, cypress, fresh tobacco, light black pepper. Firm palate.
Grainy tannins but velvet coated. Red currants, black cherry extract, black olive, resinous black currant, tart red tea. Green tobacco. Fresh oregano, bay leaf, cracked pepper. Prickly, pointed and tart, but keeps the interest piqued.

Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

2013 hoists this producer stratospherically. Great wine with integrated tannins. Meaty nose of cured and sliced roast beef and black pepper; tinged brown-brick from its 10 year slumber; cigar wrap, and roulade, graphite and smoke, and just barely, dried, black mushroom and rose petal. The palate is lush. Cherry soft, raspberry reduction, shows round but pronounced tannic dunes. Our tar is integrated, chicory peeks forth, the pepper submerged in a perfect expression of varietal and vintage. Solid work Arpatin (winks at Mother Nature)!

Riserva Cichin Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2013

Red cherry nose expands to red dye, portobello, morel and walnut shell. Dried rose petal and twisted violet petal open to soft pork and beef grilled sweetness, and loam. Lurking sensualities; dried cherries persist. A mix of cherries in varied stages of ripeness and raisination stitch themselves together in liquid satin and come so close to perfection, but there is a slight unraveling context on the finish that doesn’t disappoint, just asks for follow through. Probably comes around in time as the tannins are rustic and the wine from a stellar vintage.

Rocche dell'Annunziata Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Hint of peppermint on the nose rolls back to reveal wormwood and roses, chocolate ganache, rhubarb, and dried grapefruit peel. Velvety and complex, with peppercorn, red apple peel, cinnamon dust, dried rose petal, dried violet, and roobios tea.

Brunate Barolo Nebbiolo 2006

Cola and rose aromas, sweet tobacco and dried cherry shimmer with cilliate violet strands, and seared meat. Eucalyptus awash in tannins rakes the palate initially before softening to black and bing cherries, allspice, cinnamon and cedar. Clove puts the spice over the top in a food-worthy wine that checks every Barolo box and then some.

Barolo Chinato Nebbiolo 1891

Wintergreen fresh nose with clove and ginger, peppermint and chocolate, peppercorn and mint. Bright and pine-y.
Cinnamon heat, Barolo tar and roses, clove and orange citrus, ginseng sweetness, and cinnamon oil with frankincense aspirations. Gorgeous seasonal offerings that warm the body and soul.
