First experience with this producer. Holy moly it is good for a young wine. I loved it. Tar, dark cherries, iron, sage and rosemary. Awesome — 2 months ago

Gabutti Barbera d'Alba 2013

Every time I’ve walked into the cellar, this bottle has been starring at me and since I was making pasta alla puttanesca, I figured it was as good a time as any. Definitely on the high end for Barbera d’Alba but I’ll be damned if it ain’t worth every penny. Decanted for about an hour prior to dinner. This was extraordinary on the nose. Dark fruit dominated with baking spice, in particular, there was a significant aroma of nutmeg. The other obvious bit on the nose was, and you’ll have to bear with me here, engine shop floor. Like, the smell of walking into an old mechanic’s garage. As weird as that sounds, it was awesome. On the palate it’s big with dark fruit and spices. Tangy finish. Firm but fair tannin. Balanced. So delicious on its own or with food. Drink now with an hour decant or hold. This will be really good for years to come.

AB Normal Barbera d'Alba 2014

Fairly transparent for Barbera and light in alcohol at 13.5%. Lovely bright nose, ripe of red cherry with a floral twist. On the palate it tastes quite evolved with a secondary profile that is very appealing. Could almost pass for a barolo. Probably best Barbera I’ve tried and better than the Burlotto Aves and Vietti Scarrone tried alongside. — 2 years ago

Otin Fiorin Piè Rupestris-Nebioli Barolo Nebbiolo 2011

Hot vintage Barolo

2011 required winemaking skill to create complex & interesting wines

DAY 1
Served with the Vinlog System
👃Perfumed & candied red fruit, cinnamon, spice, tar, roses, & resin. Spectacular

👅Good balance of fruit, acidity, & tannins. Lovely finish and pleasant tannins

The remaining wine “Slow Decanted” in my refrigerator

DAY 14
👅Smoke, tar, red fruit, pine resin, and a bit of spice. Elegant & beautiful

Very enjoyable now but it has plenty of life ahead. This wine should not suffer a narrow or short drinking window despite the 2011 conditions. In fact, I would expect this wine to become more serious with additional bottle age🍷🍷

@Jay Kline It’s a fun project 🙂 I have recently posted on 3 Barolos from the 2011 vintage: Burlotto Monvigliero and Brovia Ca’ Mia included. These are all excellent winemakers and all 3 wines have been solid+ 🙌

Barbaresco Nebbiolo 1962

This wine was utter perfection! Black and White pepper, stewed Bing cherries, White truffle, super reduced balsamic, day old roasted chanterelles, tannins are fully integrated, but acid is still lively — 4 years ago
