Marcarini

Chinato Barolo Nebbiolo

Catsup and barbecue sauce on grilled chicken; heavy on the ginger and bursting with peppermint, allspice and peppercorn. Old one here, with brick red looks. Mint tea, gingerbread, ginseng, bay, violet extract, and ribbons of blood orange and clove, tell-tale tar, gum Arabic, and spiced tea cinnamon, orange, and nutmeg. Tastes like the season for every reason! #marcarini #marcarinichinato #chinato #vinoaromatizzato #piemonte #piedmont #chinchonacalisaya #lamorra #italianwine #seasonal #seasonalwine — 6 months ago

#barolo #nebbiolo #piemonte youthful. Excellent wine to collect and age in the cellar and pull out bottles every now and then. — 10 months ago

La Marescialla Barbera d'Asti 2016

Black cherry and violets commingle with red cherry lavender and raspberry in a clean, and enticing nose of fruit and flower. Blueberry, blackberry and cassis are extras, but this is not the fruit bomb the description conjures. There is something light, sunny and natural about the whole; wisps of sweet tobacco and vanilla blossom undulate on a forest and mushroom motif that feels springy, panoramic and breezy. The palate boasts dried cranberries, tangy raspberry and plump black cherry. Thyme a cinnamon dusting and the aforementioned tobacco, now a fine, smoky cigar. This one is gorgeous, and a testament to the estate. Ripe and juicy, but the oak is in check. Bravo! .

I was surprised to find this wine as evolved as it was. These wines are definitely made in a contemporary style and should not be cellared for more than 10 years. It was still good and I thoroughly enjoyed it, but there were notes of oxidation. #nebbiolo #barolo #piemonte — 10 months ago

#barberadalba #barbera #piemonte delicious. Today it reminded me of Merlot flavor and aroma characteristics. Lots of tiny ripe red plums and hints of cigar box and tobacco and leather. Great riper vintage for this Barbera — 10 months ago

I was surprised to learn that Italians don’t drink #moscato as an aperitif (which I love) but rather always as dessert. This Bara is the best and the producing father and son are the nicest people too. #moscatodasti #asti #piemonte — 10 months ago

#dolcetto #piemonte more charcoal and ash to this vintage and this vintage and mineral and fine grained tannins less dense. First vintage going back to submerged cap. — 10 months ago

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. — 3 years ago
