  • Bava Dolcetto d'Alba Controvento 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Kind of rustic Dolcetto d'Alba. Not a lot of depth, some, but not much, dark fruits, plum, earth tones, dusty chalky tannins, some nice acidity but a fairly short finish. Just not a lot to get excited about here. Read More

  • Giacomo Conterno Cascina Francia 1980

    Snoothrank:

    Immediately complex on the nose with complex aromas of iron, mint, nettles coffee bean, roses and spice accenting a core of rusty red fruit. This is a big wine and it needs more time but over the course of an hour it reveals powerful and medicinal black fruit flavors in a style that remains masculine yet elegant and refined. A burst of sliced o... Read More

  • Giacomo Conterno Barolo Cascina Francia 1989

    Snoothrank:

    This is on another level with profound aromas of hot iron, hints of cinnamon, rosehips, rose petals and powdered rocks all embedded in this tight, sinewy core of powerful, dark strawberry laced fruit. On the palate this is just perfectly balanced. Everything is here. The core of fruit is powerful and dark, yet recalls strawberries and raspberry ... Read More

  • Rivetto Barbera d'Alba Nemes 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Loved this Barbera from rivetto. A wonderful wine that still has good acidity and some herbaceous and savoury notes for complexity. Garnet colour; slightly transparent in the glass. Big nose with lots of fresh cherry fruit. Some delicate and well integrated tannin. We were happy to drink it by itself. Also paired well (but not excellently) with ... Read More
