  • Italy has a huge number of "native" grape varieties, mostly because ... to find, but from Ghemme and Valtellina, not so much.  (Shame, since Ghemme is less expensive and more approachable--in Italy, anyway.) Chianti and Montalcino are well known over here, but there are many areas producing sangiovese.  Vino Nobile is not impossible to find, b... Read More

  • So, here's a question.  Burgundy lovers insist that no New World Pinot Noir can (or will ever) compare to one from Burgundy.  Since I am still looking for that Pinot Noir epiphany and, frankly, hope to experience it on October 26, I mostly shrug at that comment.  However, are we now doing the same thing with Nebbiolo?  I have had a handful of Le...

  • GdP, I hear over and over that Nebbiolo just hasn' t thrived outside those areas of Italy.  Any insghts into why?  Wondering if you have tried the Clendenen stuff.  Oz Clarke has said it's the best thing going outside Italy, but he also has admitted that lots of Nebbiolo didn't do it for him for a long time, and even now there's a lot that is ha...

  • Don't mind at all. Palmina is as good as it gets for Nebbiolo in the ... itinerary for a visit to the Valtellina the other day. It had been on my calendar for early September but as you know I've been ill lately so everything is getting moved around and I am searching for the free time to include this in my travels this year.&nbs Read More

  • GdP hope you don't mind me reposting your comment on WB, but thought it was very insightful. This was in answer to the thread titled, So what wine turned you on to Piemonte?"1978s from Vietti, Marcarini and Aldo Conterno in about 1983. They expanded my conception of the potential of what wine could be, then they screwed with my mind for 12 or14 ... Read More

  • 5+years  for a "barolo" is pretty much standard.  Clendenen has only issued 2005 Nebbiolo at the most recent.  Looking at the stuff I have in the basement, the '04 entry level Baroli are just hitting the beginning of a window that should be open for another dozen years. The basic Langhe Nebbiolos from '08 and '09 are at the beginning of their wi... Read More

  • Thanks Mark, some very high praise indeed. Amazing how committed they are to the italian varities, even producing multiple whites and a bunch of SVD Nebbiolo. 92 points for the $40 Stolpman seems to be the value play...Greg doesn't give points out very easily so I'm highly curious to try. And that's also a wine with 5+ years on it as a current r... Read More
