Bussia Barolo Nebbiolo 2014

Selected off the list at Boiler Room. Giacomo Fenocchio’s holdings in the Bussia MGA reside within the sub zones of Bussia Sottana (of which they enjoy some of the best parcels) and that of Munie. Opened about 30 minutes before service; no decant and no formal notes. The 2014 “Bussia” from G. Fenocchio starts off a little shy, but it gains weight and significant aromatic character with time in the glass. Bright cherries, slightly on the more tart side with tar over roses. The body seems a little demure early on but it eventually fleshes out and becomes almost chewy! The structure I want and expect from Barolo is there too with lovely acid and stiff tannins. The finish is long and savory. Last sip was the best. This was quite a lovely example of 2014 and a fine accompaniment to bone-in pork chops and Morgan Ranch beef cheeks. Drink now with some patience and over the next ten or so years. — 11 days ago

Riserva Monfortino Barolo Nebbiolo 1988

A rare chance to sample a legendary bottle in a legendary year. Unfortunately this bottles journey was not so nice. Stewed and tired. — 25 days ago

Cascina Francia Barolo Nebbiolo

Medium ruby , touch of garnet but young looking . Quite a lot of red fruits , red currant , mint . Touch of spice and herbal notes . Darker fruit on the palate , redcurrant and blackcurrant touches . Very good fresh acidity , tannins firm up after a while , though they are very fine and ripe . Long and refreshing finish , touch of liquorice and spice at the end . Good now but will get better , needs a few more years in the cellar really. Very balanced and excellent 2005 that will continue to improve over the next 5-10 years and last another 10 . — 8 days ago
