Vecchio Vino

Share

Another small but interesting shipment of older wine has arrived - mostly Nebbiolo - all from a fine Italian cellar, including a rare group of Marcarini Barolo Brunate, and some bottles of the old Spanna, Ghemme, etc, which we offered earlier this year (to very good response from purchasers / tasters) - charmingly labeled and charmingly priced. Please also do not miss the excellent wines from Prunotto, Oddero, and Francesco Rinaldi.

Prunotto 1964 Barolo

Lovely nose of caramel, wet earth, tar, roses, rainwater and old barrel spice. The color is an octave lighter than the Produttori. Elegant and juicy with vivid cherry fruit and a speherical sense on the palate. Great concentration and gritty tannins. Lovely acidity. Long finish. Totally mature wine. LF

Produttori del Barbaresco 1970 Barbaresco Riserva Moccagatta

The 1970 Barbaresco Riserva Moccagatta from one of the my favorite Piedmont producers is showing beautifully with a compelling blend of earthy old Nebbiolo aromas, resolved tannins, and still lively fruit. The tension between the sweet and savory on the nose is beguiling, while the palate has evolved to the point where the fruit and earthy flavors  are supported by the structure, rather than dominated by it. Given time to blossom (we strongly advocate double decanting after lunch for dinner service) this is the perfect partner for braised meat with polenta or risotto with truffles. This is a lovely wine and a truly special treat for lovers of aged Nebbiolo. (Tasted 2/25/16) John McIlwain

Rinaldi, Francesco 1974 Barolo

This bottle is drinking so well right now. If you can spare the money, please do your self a favor and grab one while you can. Poised on the brink of maturity, the wine offers savory, tertiary aromas of earth, roasting meat, and mushroom along with delicate, mouth-filling dried cherry flavors. Really, this is the kind of beautiful, masterfully wrought wine that defies description and lingers in one's memory for years. Make sure to give the wine ample time to decant; it will take several hours of air for it to show all it has to offer. -msb
