  • Fratelli Oddero Langhe Bianco Collaretto 2010


    Huge sweet herb stem, carob, dark, slightly earthy and slightly prosciutto scented aromas are joined by a hint of wood smoke on the nose. With big, ripe tannins, this shows density on the palate, and fine balance with the potential for elegance. There is lovely freshness to the fruit, mineraly and dark, with slightly jammy wild strawberry, and a... Read More

  • Elio Grasso Barolo Ginestra Casa Mate 2010


    A bit of wood on the nose followed by aromas of clay, silica, spice, lingonberry, and deep camphor and dried herbal note emerge from the glass. Powerful with dark, rich fruit on entry, this has rather soft tannins and bright acids supporting plummy, heavy, earthy flavors that are a bit chunky in the mouth. Dense with tannins, this is quite power... Read More

  • Vietti Barolo Lazzarito 2010


    Very complex on the nose and somewhat dark and muscular with aromas of pipe tobacco, plum, iron, dark turned earth and cut flowers showing excellent freshness and precision. In the mouth this is very rich with lot of fruit and a seamless texture. Rich with both power and delicacy, theres gorgeous clarity on the palate to the big, dark strawberry... Read More

  • As you may have heard the barolo region was hit by a massive hail storm late ... ... Cavour and Diano d'Alba as well, but much less affected.The hailstones themselves were very large and even those with hail netting in place suffered damage. It's storming now as well so folks have not been able to get in to the vineyards much, but tomorrow or... Read More

    Wine review by Austinista

  • Giacomo Fenocchio Dolcetto d'Alba 2013


    Tank sample Pretty if slightly gamy tinged berry fruit greets the nose which is surprisingly savory with gentle violet accents. On entry one finds a bright, high acid example of Dolcetto with surprisingly tough little tannins. Flavors of violets, and that gamy berry fruit of the nose gain a touch of mineral, and a little spice on the backend, al... Read More

  • Giuseppe Rinaldi Dolcetto d'Alba 2013


    Sampled out of SS tank Musky and dark on the nose with reductive funk covering a lot of the detail. Rich, supple, and yet with bright acids in the mouth this shows superb freshness and good density. Not a small wine, but rather nimble on the palate this is packed with plum and raspberry fruit all supported by super fine, ripe fruit tannins. i ex... Read More

  • Oddero Dolcetto d'Alba 2012


    Buttery and a bit bubblegummy on the nose, this is very fruity with lots of blueberry fruit and accent notes of ivy and rose petal, along with a touch of reduction. A little sweet on the nose, and then soft, slightly rich, and almost chunky in the mouth. This is a very easy going, laid back style of Dolcetto that is a bit too easy and supple for... Read More
