Beautiful red berry fruit together with roses and ripe tannins, in short, a great cool weather Nebbiolo. This shares a similar weight to Pinot Noir it hails from Northwestern Piedmont.
Sweet floral aromatics emerge from the Gattinara. This deceptively medium-bodied wine shows good depth in its red fruit, but at times comes across as a touch fragile and fleeting. Nevertheless, it is an attractive, representative Gattinara well-suited for drinking over the next few years.
Profound ruby red shading with garnet reflections. Fragrances of red natural product, blackberry, plum and licorice with insights of vanilla and calfskin. Full-bodied, with extraordinary kinds of cherry, raspberry and flavor coming full circle in a long and smooth wrap up.
Barbaresco, an expansive wine from Italy, is delivered 100% on nebbiolo grapes, developed in 4 urban areas: Barbaresco, Treiso, Neive and San Rocco Seno d'Elvio.
Red-garnet color, among the elegant aromas of ripe fruit notes appear thin licorice, dried ginger, skin and wild rose hips. Very elegant, slightly spicy taste of wine with top notes of red fruit and soft tannins decorated with delicate shades of mineral and floral.
Lovely, fragile and all around adjusted this 2012 vintage of Gianfranco's Alessandria Barolo satisfies desires and is prepared to be delighted in today or with a few more years of maturing. The sense of taste is enthusiastic with crisp organic products joined by notes of cinnamon, white pepper and vanilla. Awesome causticity, and smooth tannins make it an incredible blending with steak and cured meats.
The wine bursts from the glass with a core of primary dark red fruit that caresses the palate with notable depth, richness and weight. This is a striking 2003 Barolo that bridges traditional and modern style with remarkable grace. 93 Wine Advocate (2003)
This reveals surprising muscle to match its dark red fruit, flowers and spices. As always, the Tortoniano shows the more perfumed, feminine side of Barolo, but it has an extra level of richness and body. This is a gorgeous, overachieving wine in its category. 92pt Wine Advocate (2007)
Well structured and hansomely endowed, this one has Mascarello's signature all over it, and no wonder, Sandro Fantino spent many years as Bartolo's winemaker. Classicly styled with firm tannins and just a hint of oak.
Fantino's ethereal 2001 Barolo Dardi offers a delicate, balsamic nose typical of Bussia, along with sweet fruit, spice, mineral and toasted oak notes on a classic, medium bodied frame that bridges traditional and modern styles. It will benefit from a few additional years of cellaring and should drink well to age 20. 91pts Wine Spectator (2001)
The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Rennina is distinctly powerful and savory in this vintage. Initially quite reticent, the 2010 blossoms with air as the aromatics release and the tannins start to soften. There is a lot going on in this striking, highly nuanced Brunello from the Gaja family. 97pts WA
The 2011 "Sugarille" Brunello di Montalcino is a completely enchanting appearing. It in a flash opens with appealing smells of dark fruits and blackberries woven together with flavors, flower, hazelnut and even indications of licorice which all meet up and burst from the glass. This has a rich, cleaned surface with exceptional general adjust and profundity as it grows flawlessly onto the long waiting completion. As far as style, this inclines more to the advanced side, however without question a well-made wine and amazingly noteworthy Brunello from Angelo Gaja which will age smoothly for quite a long time to come.
