Dolcetto d'Alba 2018

See previous Delectable Notes from June 2020. Very dark Ruby in colour. Ripe cherry and liquorice on nose and palate - cherry skins. A medium weight palate finishing with fine powdery tannins. Dolcetto is essentially a simple wine (went well with Quiche) but when made by a producer of the reputation of G D Vajra its a particularly good representation of the grape. — 3 days ago

Fides Barbera d'Alba 2019

Satisfying and intriguing, fruit forward, tempered by earth and floral on the finish. Structure is light but balanced. Quaffable. — 2 days ago


Barbera d'Alba Superiore 2019

Dark cherries, tobacco, tar, and bracing acidity to tackle tomatoes. Lots of northern Italian spice. Black cherries.
A cleansing mouthfeel that refreshes.
Big in the mouth. Always a great wine

Dolcetto d'Alba 2019

Didn’t have patience to wait… drank over a few days and this showed best on day 3.

Tart fruit throughout. Plum, cranberry, cherry pith, and a chalky, sweet tart minerality. Solid length. Appreciable style. Hold on this one for a few more years. Good have some room to develop in the bottle.

Valmaggiore Nebbiolo d'Alba 2018

Another pretty Nebbiolo that is also a great QPR showing the classic cherry, savory spice, dried herbs, rose petal & tar notes. Has some tannins but showing an elegant finish. — 17 days ago

San Michele Barbera d'Alba 2005

Rich Italian dark cherries permeate this luscious bouquet with a slight hint of Valencia oranges. Sour cherries, spices and a slight orange sweetness that rounds off a smooth and balanced finish! 16 years old and who would thought it would be so spectacular? That’s right- those Italians did!! — 12 days ago

Rich, dark fruit, leather and cigar smoke. Rally enjoyable and hedonistic. A value for $40 with this much age. — 5 days ago
