Barale 2015 Barolo

The Barale Barolo is a blend of fruit from 3 vineyards (all in the town of Barolo): Castellero, Monrobiolo di Bussia, and Preda. The 2015 has good depth and extract, but it seems completely effortless in it’s elegance – this is wine that feels like it just exists – it hasn’t been forced in any aspect. In April it was aromatically seductive, with lovely orange peel and eucalyptus, silky tannin, and a long, expansive finish. Jamie Wolff

Boasso 2004 Barolo Gabutti

An intense nose, perfumed, stony, red fruit, earthy, chocolate; the wine is quite tannic, medium-body and rich on the palate — lots of mineral stoniness, great fruit — really a fine wine. JW

Boggione, Claudio 2013 Barolo Brunate

Last week marked the 3rd time I’ve tasted three vintages of Boggione Brunate together, and it’s reinforced how consistent in quality the wines are, expressive of vintage, but very un-fussed with in the cellar. The 2013 is showing very savory, earthy and chalky, with some cherry fruit and very fine ripe tannin. It’s an expansive mouthful, in a way that suggests it’s going to drink well fairly soon. A very fine wine indeed! Jamie Wolff

Brovia 2015 Barolo Brea Ca'Mia

The range of wines at Brovia always show individual character, but this is amplified in 2015. Alex Sanchez (of Brovia) told us that he sees 2015 as first “a vintage of terroir”; when we get to the Brea Ca’Mia one of our group says “Serralunga to 11”, which pretty well sums it up, except that there are only a few other wines from Serralunga of this quality (side diatribe: most Rionda misses the standard). As usual the Ca’Mia is the most tannic and structured of the line-up, this is certainly a long-term prospect. 111 points. Jamie Wolff

Brovia 2015 Barolo Garblet Sué

I thought this was the best Garblet Sue I’ve tasted in 20 years of visiting Brovia. I often find this wine opaque (from a sensory perspective), but I don’t think I’ve had a chance to taste a mature bottle. By contrast the 2015, while quite dense and rich, was very expressive and showed a depth and complexity that was exciting. One for the cellar. Jamie Wolff

All density, dark fruit, and spice. More medicinal than the normale bottling, with black cherry, cedar, licorice and baking spice. Quite dark and brooding, this will need a number of years to come into it's own. Oskar Kostecki

Burlotto 2019 Rosato "Elatis"

Produced by arguably Verduno's most esteemed winery, the G.B. Burlotto Elatis Rosato is a brilliant Nebbiolo (45%) and Pelaverga (45%) based rosé, with a color that flashes between powerful mature peach and delicate rose water. The rest of the blend is Barbara. Grapes are destemmed before being pressed. The wine matures in stainless steel vats for 6 or so months before 2 months of bottle aging prior to release. The nose is exceptional, throwing lavender, fennel fronds, pomegranate, and strawberry into a bold, harmonious game of scents. The palate has angular flavors compared to the wine's aromatics, like candied raspberry and sliced unripe white plum. When first served and cold, the wine has puckering acidity, but it levels out surprisingly quick, retaining good acid but gaining a soft and pleasant texture on the tongue and cheeks. The Elatis is definitely here for immediate consumption, but I'd also love to see how this 2019 tastes in the summer 2021 or '22. Very delicious bottle. David Hatzopoulos

Camparo 2015 Barolo Boiolo

The Boiolo is the only Barolo produced by our friend Mauro Drocco at Azienda Agricola Camparo, and it shows beautiful complexity. From 20-50 year old hand harvested  Nebbiolo vines in La Morra, from slopes of south-eastern and southern exposure. The vineyard is planted on clay-calcareous, calcareous-siliceous and marl soils. Grapes are picked in October, before being pressed and  fermented  in stainless steel tanks. The wine ages  in large French oak casks for 24 months before it  is transferred to bottle, where it rests another year prior to release. On the nose, there are fresh black and red fruits, a touch of spicy licorice, and a savory aroma that conjures a bundle of dried green herbs. The palate has a bit of flesh, edges of tannic strength, and a clean line of acidity. Ripe black cherry hang above flavors of earth and dark stones. A very pleasurable wine, drinking well today.

Cantina del Lupo 2018 Piemonte Grignolino "Grignole"

“Grignole” is Astigiano (dialect of the region of Asti, home to Grignolino) for ‘a lot of seeds’ – Grignolino has a lot of seeds; hence the label – a festa of happy seeds, or if you prefer, pips. Grignolino is very light in color, and has both high acidity and tannin - A typically Piemontese grape. As Ian d’Agata says “Grignolino was, until recently, a tragically unfashionable wine because of its pale red-pink color, lack of obvious sweet, ripe, soft fruit flavors, and very high acidities and tannins.” A well-made Grignolino has low alcohol – 12.3% in this case! Grignole is made in stainless steel (no need for more tannin from wood), and macerates for just a few days; if you find that your Grignolino is dark in color, try a different version.Grignole is pale, almost like a rosato; it’s very aromatic with strawberry, sour cherry, pepper and delicate herbs. These follow through on the palate, which is layered and lively – and amazingly long and complex for such a humble and humbly priced wine. If you know Poulsard, the Grignole distinctly brings it to mind; it has quite a similar profile, and like Poulsard works well with cheese and other fairly rich food. Grignolino  is also very versatile at the table; we drank it with fairly spicy vegetarian tacos and pretty much finished the bottle without any struggle (or regrets).  Jamie Wolff

Very engaging on the nose, like uncovering a bowl of strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries while a breeze of light flowers and green grass stirs on a summer afternoon. Really, if the aromatics of this wine don't put a smile on your face, I don't know what will. The color is a translucent rhubarb hue. On the palate, there is vibrant acidity and only a minuscule tannic touch. The fruit on the tongue has more of an edge than it does on the nose, with tangy red cherry and crisp red apple. Edgy but deliciously fresh. David Hatzopoulos

Chiesa, Carlo 2018 Langhe Nebbiolo

Azienda Agricola Carlo Chiesa is one of the few producers of the Roero that we trust to deliver wines with a sense of place. That said, this bottle is produced with grapes from the Langhe hills to the south. It's weighty crimson cherry in color. On the nose, wild herbs and fresh red berries pair up for an attractive bouquet. Upon opening, the palate proved tense in structure, but came around to a balanced mouthfeel of good tannin and high acid. Black cherry fruit and crushed dark stones on the tongue. A pleasant bottle to open now, a great example of what 2018 Langhe is bringing to the market Nebbiolo-wise. David Hatzopoulos

Clerico, Francesco 2015 Barbera d'Alba

All of Francesco Clerico’s wines (Barbera, Barolo, Dolcetto, and Nebbiolo) could be used in a class as textbook examples of traditional Langhe wine. Clerico’s certified-organic vines are in Bussia di Monforte (mostly in the Colonello sub-zone of Bussia Soprana, and also in Bussia Dardi), an easy walk from his cantina in Borgata Bussia Soprana - like the wines, a hamlet that feels as though time has passed by. 2015 was a good year for Barbera in general; Clerico’s is cool, deep, and lifted, with lovely balance between bright plummy fruit and earthy, savory and forest-y notes. It makes perfect sense for Thanksgiving, as it should work well with all of the varied components of the meal, even the cranberry. Jamie Wolff

Colombera & Garella 2018 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. Beautiful nose from the get-go. Crushed, loamy volcanic rocks and slim red fruit. The palate was bright, bordering on sharp, when first opened, but with air broadened and softened while retaining a great core of acidity. Over a few hours, the aromatics swayed from floral, to earthy, to a slightly deeper heady maltiness (though never quite stuffed or dense). Flavors remained rather consistent with tart cherry and dark stones. Paired with pulled pork tacos on a Friday night - a hint at the wines versatility. David Hatzopoulos

Fratelli Alessandria 2018 Langhe Nebbiolo Prinsiot

Lifting from the glass is a swift aroma of roasted earth. A peatiness almost, just prettier. Under this is a fuller scent of baked red fruits, with cloves and herbs. Aromatically very well built. The wine's amplified acidity is framed by  firm tannic structure, with flavors of early-picked plums,  cherries, milled black pepper, and a touch of dried, shaved coconut. A very assertive wine, with layers of earth, fruit and spices, but also the most robust of the 2018 Langhe Nebbiolos that I've tasted. There is a well balanced richness to the mouthfeel.

Negri, Giulia 2015 Barolo Serradenari

A stunning wine - my note from tasting in the cellar starts with a highly scientific, “Wow!” There is none of the potential excess of 2015, instead lovely fruit, with savory, balsalm and stony notes. You get the sensation of a dark core that has yet to blossom – giving the fruit a stony base and suggesting great potential in the cellar, although the wine is balanced and delicious now.

Principiano, Ferdinando 2018 Dosset (Dolcetto)

Cowabunga! A Piemontese wine at only 10.5% ABV. And no added sulfur! I would say that's unheard of, yet here it is. Principiano's incredibly charming and utterly delicious Dosset (the name for Dolcetto in the regional dialect) is a beauty: light, fruit-forward and energetic on the palate, with soft tannins and lively acidity. The Dosset shows vibrant fruit notes of cherry, forest berries, red current and red plum, with beautiful floral tones of rose and violet. Very light when first opened, with some air it fleshes out a bit, and a purple plummy note creeps in, along with a hint of spice. Great with a slight chill. Oskar Kostecki

Principiano, Ferdinando 2018 Langhe Nebbiolo Coste

Immediately, my nose picked up on fresh blueberries, raspberries, and healthy, mulched earth. Red roses (flowers, leaves, and stems) added an elegance to the wine's aromatics. Over time, these floral characteristics became deeper, more concentrated and savory. On the palate, flavors of firm red cherries, tar, and hints of loose tobacco are carried by a structure of high acidity and very light tannin. The finish is long, and the slightest essence of candied cherry remains on the tongue for some time after each sip is gone. A sneakily complex wine, under the guise of something more simple.

Trediberri 2015 Barolo Rocche dell'Annuziata

I'm not very attached to color analysis, but this wine has great color - by which I mean, for Nebbiolo, not very dark, in fact somewhat pale, but with bright cranberry tones - a sure sign that it's not too extracted. That visual translucence applies to the palate too - a surprisingly graceful wine for Rocche dell'Annuziata; rich with fruit but without any fat, and very long. Jamie Wolff
