Le Piane

Maggiorina vino rosso 2020

A crunchy, vibrant field blend of Nebbiolo & Croatina ++. Full of energy & character.
Ripe cherries with flowery notes, underlined with some stony minerality and a bit of orange zest freshness. So enticing & fresh. Very alive.
Joyful & crunchy on the palate with edgy, juicy tannins, zippy acidity and cherries galore. Delicious, unpretentious stuff - so drinkable and so food friendly. Another benchmark glou-glou wine.
What a nice discovery from Alto Piemonte.

89/90 are the most polarizing wines I have ever sold. Loved and hated by many!

@Lyle Fass interesting! Do you think itโ€™s because of bottle variation?

@Brendan Baker yes and also many people want old wine but also many people donโ€™t get old wine.

Orbello Coste della Sesia Nebbiolo Blend 2022

A love letter to what an every day drinking Alto Piemonte red can be โ€” feather light, high toned, floral, spiced (star anise), earthy and fragrant. All the pomegranates. Finished the trip where we started. โ€” 5 months ago

What do they blend with the Nebbiolo ?

@Joshua Fisher looked it up and actually much lower in Nebbiolo than I thought (only ~50%). The rest is a blend of barbera, Croatina, vespolina with a touch of cab!

Sergio Barbaglia

Colline Novaresi Croatina Nebbiolo 2015

Nose: earthy. Blackberry. Bramble.

Palate: fresh. Vibrant. Rustic in a fun way.

An amazing version of what it is.

Tasting great! Black pepper smeared all over a piece of leather in a forest. Game throughout with lovely bits of red fruits showing up randomly on the palate. Really like this one! โ€” 4 months ago
