Ghemme on Snooth

  • Okay, we're counting down to the end of the year.  With three drinking ... probably be the Canatlupo Ghemme.  So, yeah, all Nebbiolo from Piemonte. My wine experience of the year would be the trip I took to Paso in August when I met with Steve Peck at J. Lohr one day and Josh Jensen at Calera the next.  Different markets, but both generous, tal... Read More

  • So basically anything outside Toscana and Piemonte is fair game?Alto Piemonte ... or something else. Gattinara/Ghemme/Carema/Lesona (all except the last I've posted on here) are just higher-altitude versions of the wine being made in Barolo and Barbaresco, and in several cases aren't even more rustic.

Also if I were sending Total Wine some of my stock (if I were the importer) I'd probably send them my worst, most questionably stored/transported bottles, et Read More

  • I was going to recommend Chianti or Montalcino--friends went there recently and ... although you could go the Ghemme and Gattinara regions by taking the train north from Milan--it's not quite as hard as Barolo, etc.  If you could fly into Asti or Alba, that would change things, but they don't have airports that I am aware of.&nbs Read More

  • If you want to do Nebbiolo at a price, Ghemme (Cantalupo is my go to) is safe and there's Valtellina and Gattinara, of course, and some stuff from outside the DOCGs.  But we were talking about special bottles.  I think it would be hard to find a palate that didn't approve of Monprivato--sure, lots of tannins and acids, but somehow Mauro Mascarel...

  • If I were over there rather than over here, I would've been all over this ... with neighbors Gattinara and Ghemme.  Here, individual villages’ wines differ slightly in grape composition and soil, but the consistant is Spanna, the local, small-berried mutation of Nebbiolo, grown on volcanic terroir.  No cru is large, but Boca is a mere 29 acres...
