I love alpine nebbiolo. A little softer and a touch more floral than its Barolo/Barbaresco kin, and totally ready to go at 9 years old. Silky smooth and generous at the table with dinner.

Friday night Chez Epstein. One of my favorites. Chiavennasca = Nebbiolo at its softest and most accessible. I heart me some Valtellina.

Lovely nose but a bit flat on the palate. Still a very drinkable wine. Would serve it a bit chilled.

Brilliantly acidic and balanced. Soft copper tones on the edges. Phenomenal for the price and age. Light on the palette and refined.

Leather and tobacco follow the juice. Depth on one hand, bright and acidic on the other.

Balanced freshness with power. Beautifully ripe red fruit with good tannic grip. Very nice.
