  • On Friday night, at my wife's dental office party, there was this Trapiche ... ... with the Barbera d'Alba (looking forward to JD's gift!), then the Burrowing Owl "Athene" (Syrah/Cab Sav ), both very nice and followed by the Trapiche.  Weird.  It was very boring and not much fruit.  Mildly reminiscent of Friday, but made me glad I didn't get mor Read More

  • Fontanafredda Serralunga d'Alba Barolo 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Not bad but not great Barolo. Somewhat light in color and flavor. There's a bit of cranberry on the nose with some cranberry, red and black cherry on the palate. The acidity is a bit muted and the finish a tad short. Read More

  • Giovanni Sordo Nebbiolo d'Alba 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Hugely balsamic on the nose, which is quite aromatic and fresh with aromas of red frutti del bosco, camphor, and a hint of something a little spicy. With high acids on entry, this comes off as a bit lean, with sour cherry, in a simple, clean and decisive style. the finish is long and fresh, if simple and easy going. 85pts Read More

  • Bric du Nota Nebbiolo D Alba Scarpa 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Monte Roero Big raspberry aromas with a liquory edge first greet the nose followed by lots of strawberry fruit, a bit candied but fresh, with hints of black raspberry candy. Smooth and rich in the mouth with perhaps a hint of RS as well. There are rich if gentle macerated herb tinged black berry and raspberry flavors on the palate with just a h... Read More
