Riserva Pinin Barolo Nebbiolo 2005

Vintage 2005 / Noble and classic smell from this #nebbiolo wine from #piemonte. Minerality and high acidity. A seductive wine without that creepy earthiness I dislike. Tasted blind I did not recognise this as nebbiolo. It is time to revise my opinion about #Barolo. — a year ago

Ochetti Langhe Nebbiolo 2015

Earthy, asian spice notes, ginger, lemongrass, soy bouquet. Dried black cherry, plum skins, dried lavender and dried roses with an almost potpourri spice. Classic color, classic wine. #nebbiolo #RenatoRatti #Langhe #piemonte — 2 years ago

Giovanni Almondo

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 — 2 years ago

Educato Langhe Chardonnay 2017

Lemon meringue and chalk. Complete and satisfying, balancing freshness and savor. Riesling-like energy. Always one of the most sophisticated Chardonnays from anywhere in Italy. #grasso #piemonte #chardonnay #langhe — 2 years ago

Riserva del Fondatore Tenuta La Volta Barolo Nebbiolo 2011

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

Dragon Langhe Bianco Chardonnay Blend 2017

So open and tropical at first. Smell more of the Sauv in the blend... then if you know Vajra’s Riesling it really comes out at the end. Interesting white from the langhe although more of an international style (stainless steel only though) Great great wine! #vajra #langhebianco #blend #piemonte — 2 years ago

Azienda Vitivinicola Traversa Giuseppe

Riserva Canova "Ciabot" Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2009

Black rye crisp, sesame, dried rose petal, dried, deep lavender, subtle aspects of cinnamon, Connecticut leaf tobacco, and a loamy till after a burn. These are the undulating aromas. Velvet and seductive tannins perfectly integrate into the medium silk mouthfeel. Tar and tobacco, black plum, graphite, black olive, espresso, cinnamon and roses. #barbaresco #nebbiololover #nebbiolo #piemonte #piedmont #Traversa #TraversaGiuseppe #nebbiololover #queenbarb — 2 years ago

Lorenzino Dolcetto d'Alba 2016

So underrated. Dark, brooding, intense. Roasted plums, grated spices. Still, it’s fleshy, corpulent and packed after a day or two of aeration. #dolcetto #alba #piemonte — 2 years ago
