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

    Snoothrank:

    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

  • 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

    Snoothrank:

    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

  • Giacomo Fenocchio Bussia Barolo 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Soil driven on the nose with hints of forest floor, tight rose bud and limestone followed by camphor and huge, sweet red fruits and strawberry leaves. The tannins here are quite fine grained tannins and support impressively rich strawberry fruit that shows a bit of jamminess and hints of blue flowers in the mouth. The tannins are big but very ri...

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
