  • Burlotto G.b. Comm. Barbera d'Alba Aves 2012


    Chocolate, ivy, black cherry, and mineral come together on the nose with just a subtle underlay of wood,. Big acids on entry let you know this is Barbera, and this remains brilliant in the mouth with huge drive on the palate and great clarity to the red cherry and black plummy fruit. With fabulous balance and integration of flavors, you get just... Read More

  • Cappellano Barbera Barbera d'Alba 2009


    Smoky, ripe and complex on the nose, with deep earthy, medicinal accents to the candied black fruit and a lovely hint of chocolate liquor and chocolate covered cherry. Electric acids on attack are followed by rich,powerfully dark yet fresh fruit, unfolding gorgeous layers of plum, earth, and gently spiced fruit. This is an incredible wine, long ... Read More

  • Lucky you.  I was just there... Piedmont is pretty stretched out.  If ... is close to the main road to Alba and on the end of the Barolo region closest to Barbaresco, so you can visit and taste at wineries there easily.You could stay in Alba, but I'd opt for one of the Barolo villages. La Morra also has nice accommodations, and Burlotto in Verd... Read More

  • 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

  • Brovia Barolo Brea Ca'Mia 2010


    With the new labelling laws implemented with the 2010 vintage the wine formerly known simply as CaMia will now also include the name of the Brea cru on the label. Dark, earthy and spicy on the reticent and medicinal nose which picks up aromas of dried plums, dark cherry, dandelion greens, leather, asphalt, and rose petals with air. Big and power... Read More

  • Brezza Barolo 2010


    Deep bay leaf edged wild cherry fruit on the nose is joined by a bit of rosehip in a slightly jammy and slightly minty style with a top note of astringent lingonberry, antiseptic fruit. Bright with good energy on entry, this is a bit lean, transparent and light on the palate with delicate raspberry fruit. there is great tannic structure here, la... Read More

  • Brezza Barolo 2010


    Camphor and herb stem notes greet the nose followed by a base of black currant/blackberry fruit A bit soft and compact in the mouth, this reveals earthy, slightly herby, simple but pure and tense burnished cherry fruit with hints of sandalwood and medicinal licorice nuances. Nicely poised and modestly firm, this is elegant and perfumed in the mo... Read More

  • Massolino Barolo Margheria 2010


    Planted in 1985 under the winery just north, a little sandier than the others, which lends it a floral, sweet dried floral and tobacco that sets this cru apart Mineral and sweetly spicy on the nose with an almost cinnamon, great Chinese five spice character and tobacco base notes and a faint marine saline accent. Bright and clear on entry this ... Read More
