Brunate Barolo Nebbiolo 2006

Cola and rose aromas, sweet tobacco and dried cherry shimmer with cilliate violet strands, and seared meat. Eucalyptus awash in tannins rakes the palate initially before softening to black and bing cherries, allspice, cinnamon and cedar. Clove puts the spice over the top in a food-worthy wine that checks every Barolo box and then some.

Ca' Rossa Grumello Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo 2011

8.4?!? #FakeNews - There was not a whole lot of persistence with this high altitude Lombardy #Chiavennasca but was very aromatic on the nose with hints of tar and dry earth with a similar pallette to match. This bad boy was €10.99. #nebbiololife — 5 years ago

Cavalier Bartolomeo

Altenasso Barolo Nebbiolo 2016

Red cherry and dried cranberry, rose petal, cherry lozenge, cedar, cherrywood, cypress, fresh tobacco, light black pepper. Firm palate.
Grainy tannins but velvet coated. Red currants, black cherry extract, black olive, resinous black currant, tart red tea. Green tobacco. Fresh oregano, bay leaf, cracked pepper. Prickly, pointed and tart, but keeps the interest piqued.

Nebbiolo d'Alba Nebbiolo

Raspberry, dried blackberry and cedar form a distinct potpourri when considered with the dried rose petal and orange bitters. There is a fleeting fruitiness that approaches strawberries dropped into a coniferous fire. Lovely, if firm tannins support a whale of a wine. Amazing depth with Roobios tea leafs, tobacco, graphite, bay leaf, bing cherry, dried black cherry and black currants on carbon paper and campfire ash, driven deep into a charred wormwood and dusty schist. This is an incredible Nebbiolo that over-delivers in every sense! #piedmontesewines #nebbiolo #nebbiololover #nebbiololife #nebbiolodalba #alba #Demarie #piedmont #babybarolo #italianred #Italianwine — 6 years ago

Cascina Chicco

Riserva Ginestra Barolo Nebbiolo 2008

Gorgeous garnet exhibiting classic orange notes and the tiniest tinges of age, but the aromas of cut cherry and citrus jump from the glass! Blood orange thyme and watermelon on a grill with red currant and just a touch of cranberry and holly to keep it festive. The tar is a hovering ethereal addition that would be a side note, but it hovers like a smoky cloud that adds a dark spirit to the whole, though it feels bright and fresh. A dichotomy, but one that seems an integral part of the whole. Every sip sends your tastebuds racing in a wash of intense red raspberry, plum, violet, thyme, racy citrus and grainy cedar, silky tannin, an unobtrusive touch of vanilla and sweet tobacco! Finesse and sophistication from entry to satisfying finish. An amazing wine with endless subtleties, physically pulling you in with its seductive structure. #cascinachicco #singlevineyard #barolo #ginestra #ethereal #nebbiololife #nebbiololover #nebbioli #nebbiyolo #piedmont #piedmontwines #piemonte — 6 years ago

Riserva del Fondatore Tenuta La Volta Barolo Nebbiolo 2011

Kalamata olives, dried black cherries, baker’s chocolate, rusted jalopy, black pretzel, tar, and dried violets. Energetic aromatically; evocative of a rustic stone house with a variegated garden of herbs, and perhaps straw roofing. Plum moves forward in a good way rounding out the basket. Powdered cherry and blood orange with the finest tannins seem to liquify into a delicious balancing act between fruit and earth and herbs. Ripe plum, dried red cherries, black cherry juice, black olives, blood orange over grilled meat, sassafras, sage, tarragon, black truffle, chicory and walnut. Not a traditional pairing with Californian lamb from sustainable vineyards in Lake County, but revalatory. #Barolo #nebbiololife #nebbiololover #nebbioli #cabutto #tenutalavolta #docg #piemonte #piedmont — 6 years ago

Cannubi Barolo Nebbiolo 1996

Very powerful and masculine style of wine. Oak was dominant and took some time to open up. Savory and rich with meaty, shroomy, truffle and sanguine flavors. Hold for a few more years or decant hours ahead of time! #womeninwine #nebbiololife #nebbiololover #chiaraboschis #barolo #barologirl — 7 years ago
