From Piedmont, one of our favorite collections has offered another remarkable batch of wine, including some intriguing lesser-known producers. Who knows - a fine discovery is always possible! Jamie Wolff
Though fairly light in style, the 1971 Michele Mascarello Nebbiolo d'Alba is multi- layered and showing surprisingly fresh fruit despite its considerable development. This comes through on the nose, where fresh red cherries stand out over old leather, cedar wood, green herbs and slight red floral notes. The palate takes on a more savory character with sour cherries, fresh porcini mushrooms, leather, and a hint of sweet spice. Quite lovely with soft, resolved tannins and bright acidity - this would pair beautifully with an herbed mushroom risotto or, better yet, roasted duck with a sour cherry gastrique. A great opportunity to enjoy a 45-year-old Nebbiolo for under $40. Andy Paynter
Oddero is one of just a handful of producers who made excellent wine in the past and who continue to do so now. Admittedly our opinion of their current vintages is biased, since we admire Oddero's fidelity to Barolo made in the traditional manner. Anyway, the old wines are great, and we're happy to have old vintages whenever we can.
