  • Thanks for posting the Chambers St. offer...they're one of the few to carry ... Alto Piemonte, Gattinara and Ghemme, etc?Mark, I agree that light and humidity could be issues at Total Wine. 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

  • Can we go back to the Nebbiolo discussion?  Those timelines were all ... ... Vigneti di Cantalupo's Ghemme Anno Primo.  Good, typical if lighter Piemontese nebbiolo at a fair price.  A go to for me.  No need to spend $50 and up for non-Barolo wines from nebbiolo.&nbs Read More

It has to be 85% Nebbiolo.Bramaterra... Read More

  • Gattinara and Ghemme references, this Alto Piemonte thing is really taking off! I suppose I better stock up on all the Antoniolo I can afford. 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...

I enjoyed the Imagery (Remy in WA grows one, not as good), but the best Lagrein is from Sudtirol/Alto Adige. Me, I had a domestic Graciano from Pierce Ranch, down at the south end... Read More

  • 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...
