La Pira Vecchie Viti Barolo Nebbiolo 2014

Licorice and red fruits. Incredibly precise. From 80+ years old vines in monopoly since 1990. Drinks beautifully now but definitively another 20 years to go. — 9 days ago

Bussia Barolo Nebbiolo 2016

J. Kim

There is not enough lively acidities and tannic grip to provide support, texture and definition for the aromas that are dominated now by old wood and lack detail and focus. Some people like its relaxed, unforced style but the winemaking is not as accomplished as those from Roagna, Cavallotto and Oddero. After 24 hours, the aroma dissipates to reveal the tertiary notes and the tannins come forward. — 2 years ago

Pajè Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2016

Couldn’t resist opening one of the newly arrived 2016 Pajès from Roagna. It opens with an earthy/clay nose and is a translucent brick red in the glass. Hints of rose, cherry, cocoa and red berries mixed with sharp, drying tannins. High potential and glad to have a benchmark while I lay a few more of these and some Vecchi Vitis down for a while. — 5 months ago

Pira Barolo Riserva Nebbiolo 1996

The 96' Riserva Pira had my nose stuck in the glass the whole time. I just couldn't get enough of the incredible bouquet. Even the tail ends were intoxicating. Ahhh!!! Full-on rose petals, violet, plums, dried cherries, blueberries, tar, spices (cinnamon and clove especially), undergrowth, tabacco leaf, and balsamic tones. So complex and lifted. It's just ahhh and ahhhhhhhh again and again as this wine bombarded the olfacotry system. On the other hand, the palate was quite stubborn at the start, but eventually gave way to some sweet fruit notes of fresh cherries and plums, plus hints of stoney minerality at the end. It's thick and dense, with firm but well-honed tannins and ample acidity. So fresh and young that it just begs for time, but how can one resist the beautiful smells right now. Probably the best nebbiolo I've had in a while. — 3 years ago
