Demarie

Nebbiolo d'Alba Nebbiolo

Raspberry, dried blackberry and cedar form a distinct potpourri when considered with the dried rose petal and orange bitters. There is a fleeting fruitiness that approaches strawberries dropped into a coniferous fire. Lovely, if firm tannins support a whale of a wine. Amazing depth with Roobios tea leafs, tobacco, graphite, bay leaf, bing cherry, dried black cherry and black currants on carbon paper and campfire ash, driven deep into a charred wormwood and dusty schist. This is an incredible Nebbiolo that over-delivers in every sense! #piedmontesewines #nebbiolo #nebbiololover #nebbiololife #nebbiolodalba #alba #Demarie #piedmont #babybarolo #italianred #Italianwine — 2 years ago

Cascina Chicco

Langhe Nebbiolo 2015

Tar and blackberries descend within a rain of fine ashes, black lime and basil. Graphite and concrete seem to encircle. There is a residual whiff of grilled bone and the expected black rose petals. Licorice, black cherry, a creamy chocolate texture, an explosive grilled citrus and black lime that becomes black currant and dry graphite with dried black olive delicately rolled in phyllo-thin layers to reveal expressive, cotton-like tannins that linger in tea leaf voluptuousness! My absolute favorite Langhe Nebbiolo! #CascinaChicco #langhenebbiolo #Langhe #Nebbiolo #piedmontesewines #piedmonte #babybarolo #realwine #tannin — 3 years ago

Very herbal and meaty nose, intense aromas, reminiscent of earth, dirt and geraniums. High acidity, sharp red fruit, cranberries and then a spicy and balsamic finish. Long. #dolcetto #piedmontesewines #vajra — 3 years ago

Outstanding #langhenebbiolo, it's definitely a #babybarolo #piedmontesewines with those pronounced tannins that you love to taste in a Barolo. A touch of #brett but minuscule. Perfect concentration and tension. Will age well drink 2018-2028 — 3 years ago

Cascina Nuova Cerretta Barolo Nebbiolo 2007

Chocolate, black roses, initially big black fruit and bright red fruit framed by a crisp minerality and Orange soda soaked tar. Loved it instantly, but like a Proustian girlfriend viewed in the changing light of the moon, this lycanthropic she-devil turned dark, and her venomous fangs, popping out to feed left me in a shadow of big tannins (lovely) and undulating demoniacs. Bad vintage, over-extracted, but great effort in a really bad vintage. Hence the rating. Haters gonna hate! I love you! #ElioAltare #Barolo #piedmontesewines — 5 years ago
