Barale 2019 Barbera d'Alba Castle

Shades of red and black in the glass. A joyous nose - tons of roses and fresh red berries. The faintest aroma of flower stems. The palate is soft, then quickly rich, with cocoa and cherry. The finish turns to dark tea leaves and graphite. Despite the mineral character, this isn't a gritty Barbera. There's woven structure. Medium acidity, hitting the mark. A delight to drink.

Boggione, Claudio 2016 Barolo Brunate

The 2016 Brunate is super-aromatic, hitting Nebbiolo’s typical indicators of bright cherry fruit, rose, rich earth/clay/limestone, some balsalm and minty notes; the wine develops even more complexity with air. To me it sings Brunate – that is, a wine with evident power and a serious nature, but also austerely elegant, and balanced between power and finesse without any strain or obvious effort. This is a classic wine that will repay some years in the cellar, but on day 1 it was very good, on day 2 excellent, and on the third day quite spectacular. This may not be the most practical schedule for home drinking, but pouring into a decanter or pitcher in the morning will yield a similar result by dinner time!

I can’t resist pointing out that for a Barolo Brunate of this quality the price is very reasonable. But you can do even better: take a 10% discount for any 12 bottles of wine from our inventory, AND – for 24 hours only – we are offering a 15% discount for a 12 bottle case of Boggione. Jamie Wolff

Cantina del Lupo 2018 Barbera d'Asti

You wouldn't think a Barbera to be so expressive and layered, but this bottle by Cantina del Lupo surely is. The nose has a classic Piedmontese mix of earth and fruit. Aromas of blackberry and cherry waft from the glass, along with hints of loose, healthy, pitch-black soil. On the tongue, there is red cherry, plum, and a woodsy flavor of birch and spice. Subtle but well placed tannin balance the the warm fruit on an edge of medium acidity. For those of you that loved the 2015 vintage of this bottle, we're sure you'll enjoy the 2018 just as much.

Colombera & Garella 2019 Coste della Sesia

This vibrant red 70% Nebbiolo, 15% Vespolina, and 15% Croatina. Cristiano Garella teamed up with Giacomo and Carlo Colombera to produce wines in the Northeastern corner of the Piedmont, known as Alto-Piemonte. Christiano had been associated with a few producers in the area, focused on revitalizing a once-prominent wine producing region, and Carlo had been growing grapes in Bramaterra since the 90s. The bottle comes from the appellation of Coste Della Sesia, with volcanic-sandy soils. The vines have Southwestern exposure and have an average age of 40 years. All fruit is picked by hand and ferments for 14 days in stainless steel without temperature control. The wine ages for 10 to 12 months in used barriques before bottling. Aromas of redcurrant  and strawberry contrasts those of graphite, bell pepper, mint. The palate has dark plum, ripe black cherry and spicy, cracked black pepper. High acid and strong tannin last in the mouth long after the sip. A lovely chew. The finish has a hint of sour blackberry, bolstered by a snappy mineral drive. Great wine! David Hatzopoulos

Iuli 2019 Vino Rosso 'Natalin' Grignolino

Grignolino farmed organically from a few parcels owned and rented by Fabrizio Iuli. Fabrizio is the only winemaker in the village of Montaldo di Cerrina, carrying on a tradition started by his grandfather, who planted vines in the 1930s. Fabrizio's first vintage was in 1998 and he is proud of the classic Piedmontese wines he creates. The Natalin is fermented in cement with native yeasts. Aged in cement for around 7 months. The  Natalin 2019 is a lovely shade of black cherry in the glass. On the nose, this Grignolino has beautifully unique fruit, with the scent of pungent ruby red grapefruit and small forest plums, with accents of smoke and fresh violets. On the palate, there is blood orange, with juicy red currant, and a minerally earthiness. Structurally, the wine is set by fantastic tannic form, with a zing of medium acidity. David Hatzopoulos

Sandri, Elio (Cascina Disa) 2018 Barbera d'Alba

This needed some air, after which it was delicious, open and light-to-medium bodied, with fine balance. Very good indeed. Jamie Wolff

Sandri, Elio (Cascina Disa) 2018 Langhe Nebbiolo

Elio Sandri is still not the household name he deserves to be considering the extremely high quality of his wines. This bottling is entirely from grapes within Barolo that did not get selected for the eponymous bottling, so he uses them for this more entry-level bottling, ferments in steel, then ages in a combination of neutral wood and tanks for a short time. The nose is savory with notes of dried earth, sun-dried tomato, rhubarb, oregano, and the palate has more freshness, salinity, and present, but approachable tannins that make this a great current drinking Nebbiolo, especially with heartier fare.

Trediberri 2019 Nebbiolo d'Alba

Most of the fruit from the Nebbiolo comes from La Morra, with some additions from the Roero and the Alta Langha. Fermentations in concrete last about 12 days, and the wine ages in concrete and steel. The 2019 has a lovely and lively pale color; the nose is earthy, even a little funky, backed-up with bright cherry, and cocoa. The palate is savory and quite suave – but with good cut, and very ripe and gentle tannin – altogether an elegant and very tasty Nebbiolo. Nicola has the last word: “This unoaked, fruity and drinkable nebbiolo is meant to be an easy (yet not trivial) wine to share with friends during a nice and funny chat. Drink it slightly cold, maybe while sharing a platter of mixed charcuterie or with some lovely tajarin al ragù.” Jamie Wolff
