  • Aldo Conterno Barolo 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Wow wild cherry, menthol, rose petal, a touch of exotic fruit, pomegranate maybe with a hint of India ink all greet the nose with power and clarity. In the mouth this is pretty easy going with lots of pretty fresh yet simple if juicy, red fruits. Theres a nice tannic finish here with tons of licorice flavors and this is awfully well behaved, ho... Read More

  • I'm picking up here where I last left off, halfway through reporting on mostly the 2009 vintage in Barolo. As you can see here, and in my previous report on these wines, the vintage is a bit irregular to say the least with some powerful, structured wines being produced as well as many wines that show elevated alcohols or aggressive tannins. As I... Read More

  • Josef Chromy Tasmania Chardonnay 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Josef Chromy (Launceston, Tasmania) is well known in the Great White North for Pinot Noir, but for Chardonnay less so. If you are tickled by the garlic-lees scent of some Chablis, this may be the wine for you. No fruit-bomb for après-midi aperitifs, this wine is acidic and cold-climate - and mainly for food. Ignoring the nose, the entry is qui... Read More

  • Roberto Voerzio Barolo Fossati Case Nere 2003

    Snoothrank:

    Lots of ripeness on the nose, stewy and still oaky. This is fairly fresh on the palate considering the vintage, though it still shows some wood along with flavors of rich red fruits. This is a powerful wine with a rustic finish that shows a green edge to the tannins here. You can sense that this might be an elegant wine in another vintage, even... Read More

  • Roberto Voerzio Brunate Barolo 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Powerful aromas of beef blood, cinnamon, nutmeg, a touch of rust, dark fruit, and macerated medicinal herbs greet the nose. This is texturally packed on the palate, rich and yet with a touch of austerity. Nicely rounded tannins supported flavors that show flashes of mint and something vegetal along with a big follow through of root beer on the f... Read More

  • Roberto Voerzio Barolo Rocche Dell'Annunziata Torriglione 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Filled with aromas of dark ripe fruit that have a bit of a sweet wild cherry coulis aspect to them are topped with meaty, balsamic, and dried beef perfumes. This is tight and slightly austere, very 2008 in character with nice acids and structural integration, though a little vegetable bouillon appears on the midpalate. This is integrating the wo...

  • Voerzio Roberto Barolo la Serra 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Nice notes of macerated flowers greets the nose along with wood spice, toasty oak, and some balsamic top notes. Nicely rich and powerful on entry with good clarity on the palate and lots of ripe fruit supported by nice ripe tannins lending this a broad and yet transparent feel on the palate. This shows a little oxidation on the backend with a l... Read More

  • Voerzio Roberto Barolo Cerequio 2009

    Snoothrank:

    A nice lightly jammy wild cherry note spread over a cedar shingle that has that dry wood note of old grey wood greets the nose. This shows nice liquory red fruit, a little red curranty, in a smooth style with good clarity on the palate, nice acid cut and fine grained tannins that build on the palate. Fairly crisp, spicy strawberry fruit has to ... Read More

  • Elio Altare Barolo Cerretta 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Dark and earthy on the nose with some prune fruit aromas integrating with toasty wood, medicinal herbs, and some baking spices. This is opulent with lots of power on entry, in a focused and relatively elegant style that is absorbing the tannin fairly well. Filled with dark and slightly anonymous fruit, theres nice weight here, if this is a touc... Read More

  • Elio Altare Barolo Vigneto Arborina 2009

    Snoothrank:

    High toned and aromatic on the nose but with lots of wood spice, making this simple but intense. This is smooth and polished in the mouth with fine grained tannins, broad wild macerated cherry flavors with hints of licorice, medicinal herbs and a little bit of mint on the back end. Another wine with lots of tannins, just wood and fruit and not m... Read More
