  • Met up with Foxall last night in Oakland...We had a couple modest '04 ... ... ... Barolo at dinner. The Aldo Conterno was drinking very well, plenty of acid and tannin, with typcial bursts of dark nebbiolo fruit. Also found some mild cinnamon impressions and other spices, however did not find the oak cloying, even though Foxall gave some back... Read More

  • I think OT had a thread in Berserkers all about pictures of vines and vineyards...tried to find one on here but came up short. There was some talk of Limerick Lane (has a nice ring to it) on here recently, I believe Mark has some of the wines. Just now I noticed a nice picture of some Limerick Lane Vineyard rows posted to Facebook by Adam of Sid... Read More

  • That's good to hear Fox...2000 is the most accessible Barolo I've ever ... above.There was also a 2006 Aldo Conterno Cicala that was suspected to have a minor TCA taint or some other flaw that we couldn't pin down. It was also from the K&L sale.Bummer about the Fenocchio though as I still have a few more and really thought I had a great wine. ... Read More

  • Sandrone is modernist, so it's interesting to see what's happening to ... The 2001 is a Cicala from Aldo Conterno, and goes for $325.  Ouch!  But luckily corkage is only $25, and I had this sitting in my basement:Not my photo, sorry.  But that very bottling.  So I read the 2000s are peaking early, like right now, and I didn't really want to mo...

  • That Fenocchio would have been better on the second or third day, IMO.Funny, I ... definitely time to open the Aldo Conterno GB from 2000.  I'd sit on the delle Rose quite a bit longer, frankly, although I think the '11s are going to be good for early drinking. We're working hard to move ahead on the house project, but we have hit a roadblock ...

  • WB has a thread on this, why not us?Cracked my first one over the weekend, a Giorgio Pelissero Barbaresco Nubiola. While Pelissero has a couple more highly esteemed Barbaresco (Tulin, of which I have a few, and Venotu, of which I hope to get some), I enjoyed this wine, and picked the right time to open it as it was accessible enough for the casu...

  • Okay, so I have been away, but I am really excited about those Fenocchio Bussia ... ... Paiagallo, '00 Aldo Conterno Granbussia, and a hodgepodge of '04-'06-'07 Barolos.  But I did go long on '10s and I also agree that the '11s will probably drink better early. Speaking of Barbarescos, I asked Jamie and Chambers will be bringing in Cascina del...

  • I'm kind of glad this one came back to life as I was checking in for the ... ... traditionalists frown on Aldo Conterno, where they scrape the botte frequently (every couple years).  This exposes new wood, and exposes the wines to harsh tannins--again.  AC supposedly uses something that even chips up the surface a bit.  Barrel size and age is ...

  • Fox, I have a 2000 Aldo Conterno too!  Oops, no, 1999 and just Bussia.  It'll be here when you and the fam visit well after the renos!EMark, sounds sublime.  Your whole day I mean.  I like Saint Saens, Gabby Faure and Debussey too.  But I think I'd need a Cote Rotie to go with (I'd say Burgundy, but you know Greg and I....).Were you sitting on t...
