Barolo, Cuneo

Giacomo Conterno

Riserva Monfortino Barolo Nebbiolo 1967

Mostly amber in color, translucent and with clear rims. Great old Barolo nose. Notes of tea, anise, red roses, some tar and some cherry cola. Very thin in the glass at first, so not much impact in the mouth. But it needed LOTS of air to open up. By hour 6 this had improved dramatically – gaining weight and complexity. Saved a glass to go with the cheese course, and was rewarded since this wine so desperately needed food next to it. Great showing for a pretty old bottle of Nebbiolo. (Bday 11 of 12) — 2 days ago

Barolo Nebbiolo 2016

More fresh and fruit forward than a typical Barolo. Aromas and flavors of bright red fruit, plum and chocolate. Hint of nuts on the finish. Round tannins and juicy. Great wine for grilling and outstanding QPR! — 3 days ago

Barolo Nebbiolo 2008

Ruby red with a tawny rim. Aromas of menthol, mint, black and red fruits with a touch of licorice and tar. Similar notes on the medium to full bodied palate. Finishes with chalky, fine, drying tannins. This producer was one of the early adopters of using small French oak Barriques. This influence was noticeable 4 years ago in my first Delectable note on this wine but now it has all come together and in balance. Looking forward to trying the 3rd one in 2 or 3 years time. — 2 days ago

Ellena Barolo Nebbiolo 2011

Popped and poured; enjoyed over three hours. Pours a dark ruby with a transparent core. Medium+ viscosity, medium+ intensity. On the nose, Twin Bing, roses, alpine air, forest floor, tar, and a small dash of baking spices. On the palate, mixed red fruits, blood orange pith, tobacco, and fresh green herbs. Quite a bit rounder than I’m used to for Barolo but it’s undeniably a charmer. The finish is very long, bone dry. Yes…this is very becoming indeed! Medium+ tannin, medium+ acid, medium + alcohol. Hedonistic and drinking so well now. — 8 days ago

Fun 1967 Barolo to accompany a great meal tonight at Per Se. Light but still structured with nice acidity. Mellowed out nicely over the course of the meal. — 2 days ago

Aleste Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Before Aleste there was Cannubi Boschis, and Aleste is rocking! Is smell aromas of raspberry, five spice tones, with chocolate mint, some summer flowers and berries overripe in the afternoon hours in the forest. There is also some espresso in the nose, overall this is a great wine to cover part two of the wine study night😋🍷 — 2 days ago

Cannubi Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

This is a translucent, pale garnet color to the eye.

On the nose there’s tobacco, leather and earthy flavors and slight red cherries scents.

The palette is equally rustic with notes of mushroom, tar, and some heavy oak; the fruit is present but most everything is overpowered by the acidity and the locking tannings. This tasted much much better when paired with a citric creamy tagliatelle than on its own.

La Morra Barolo Nebbiolo

Lovely and accessible 2015 Barolo. More ripe red fruit, even some apple…. but the typical Nebbiolo notes remain prevalent. You could let this sit for 5 more years, but it’s really good now with some air. — 12 days ago
