6 Italian Reds Tasted at Primas. Showed lots of smoky, minty nose, lots of forward, big fruity taste of wine, too much tannin on the long, long, smoky finish. Retail $44, Third place.

Medium garnet with amber rim. Expressive nose of typical Nebbiolo scents around cherries, tobacco, leather, sweet spices, very nice. On the palate medium bodied with good acidity and balance overall. Slightly drying tannins preventing a higher note though, not sure they will lose that trait. Still, with Mediterranean food this will go well.

Complex nose of earth, mushroom, leather and licorice. Gorgeous body, with fully integrated tannins. Very long finish. Wonderful. We let it open for about an hour.

Blind w/Geoff Labizke: Med. pale garnet with orange rim, bricking, faded; stewed fruits and dry plum-cherry, cranberry; orange rind, leather, light VA, light brett, band aid present with forest floor, shrooms, coffee; some impressions of vanilla oak barely noticable; not much sediment on old Barolos/Barbarescos b/c it often drops out early before bottling. Moderate plus acid, body, alc., nicely balanced, but still with high, fine chalky tannins. Very nice older Barbaresco clearly with significant age on it. Doing well, but I would have liked it 5 years ago. Guessed older Barolo.

Beautiful bouquet with coffee, tobacco and sweet spices. On the palate some chocolate as well, red fruits, good acidity and also some noticeable sweetness. Soft tannin with still a pleasant bite. This bottle was in its maturity stage. mid life.

Opened and decanted 5 hours prior to tasting. Somewhat "blurred" , signs of aging in he glass. Superb nose with fruits, leather and noble tones. Dark fruit in the mouth lacking backbone as one of the few minor points. Nice tannins, good acids, long finish. I am not convinced about its aging potential.

7/23/2014 - chatters wrote: NR

Aromas of sweet spices, horseshit, funky and farty, cherry and plum, leather and, with time, porty notes. In the mout there are flavours of cherry, plum, spice, leather. Quite juicy with savoury ripe chalky tannin that is more on the mid palate than the front of mouth but present throughout and introducing a liquorice element. Carries long on the palate with touches of rose.

7/23/2014 - chatters wrote: NR

Medium minus intensity aromas of plum, spice, slightly smoky notes, meaty and farty - slight sulphurous, cedar, toast, mushrooms. In the mouth the wine is juicy, spicy, savoury plack and red plum fruit with meaty notes and cream and vanilla and then massive chewy, chunky tannin rolls into the mouth and takes command of the palate like a despot before applying a curfew to all other flavours and textures on the palate. This carries through on the long finish with, right at the death, very slight caramel notes.

Welcome back dinner (Imperial Treasure Great World City): Popped at about 710pm very good acid but very tight. After decanting for 3 hours the nose and palate was more open. Several people around the table could not guess it being an Italian wines.

Provade blint! Tog både producent, vin och årgång. Har druckit det 4-5 gånger tidigare och känner dessutom den som tog med det till blindprovningen så att det hjälpte mig på traven.

Har verkligen fortfarande förvånansvärt mogen och fin jordgubbsfrukt, väldigt bra syra och tanniner som fortfarande finns kvar. Otroligt med denna balans efter över 50 år.
Det här vin skulle man verkligen velat dricka till någon god tryffelrätt istället för som sista vin på en lång provning.

Provat på besök hos Gaja
En stor ren parfymerad doft med hallon, mineral och rosor. I smaken väldigt ren och tydlig med underbara hallon, mineraler, apelsinskal och lakrits. Väldigt bra balans och lång fin eftersmak med karaktär av Bourgogne.

Angelo Gaja's Show (Hotel Villa Real - Madrid): Super aromatic, perfumed and powerful Barbaresco. A reflection of this particular vintage.
Full of aromas of truffles, roses, earth. Delicious.
On the palate, even been a young bottle, matched perfectly well that magnificent nose.
Wine of reflexion. Calls for a Havana cigar.

Perfumadísimo y potente. Un reflejo de esta añada concreta.
Lleno de aromas a trufa, a rosas, a terreno. Deliciosa.
Complejidad al extremo máximo.
La boca, aún siendo joven, acompaña perfectamente a esa magnífica nariz.
Vino de reflexión. Llama a un buen habano.

Complex nose filled with tar, roses, lingonberries & rose hip. The wine is very well balanced with a medium body with fine grained tannins. There are lots of red fruits, such as pomegranate och lingonberries as well as dark fruits: baked dark cherries on the palate. Truly lovely finish (m+).

Middag på Villa Tiboldi, Canale, Roero
Det här är verkligen ett helt fantastiskt vin!!!
Jag drack det senast för mindre än en vecka sedan och har säkert druckit upp mot 10 flaskor av detta helt superba vin. Kan bara kopiera vad jag skrev för ett par månader sedan.

Detta är ett väldigt kraftfullt vin som ändå är så otroligt elegant. Det har verkligen allt. Mörka körsbär, hallon, lakrits, nyrostat kaffe, underbara rosor, läder, lite örter, tjära, apelsin.
Givetvis fortfarande väldigt ungt med rätt kraftfulla tanniner, men vilken balans och struktur. Det har en väldigt bra frukt och syra i balans med dessa tanniner. Och magiskt lång eftersmak.

Septet wine-lovers 6th meeting in 2014 (at Eli Farkash, Savion): subtle earthy aroma
med bodied, soft tannins, almost no fruity flavours, lacks structure & complexity - this is not a typical Barbaresco, especially for this great vintage.

A very fine and alive bottle!
Loads of leather, strawberries and gentle smoke on the nose.
On the palate this has beautiful sweet strawberries, fine acidity and is very much a vivid wine still, at 50 years of age.
Lovely!

Loads of cherries on the nose!
Almost ridiculous amounts.
Some green herbs and pine needles, on the otherwise rather closed nose.
A somewhat Bordeaux like nose in some way.
Very fine structure, with good punch in the dark red fruit, cherries, earth, good tannins and backbone, touch of sweetness in the fruit present on the long and complex finish..
This bottle is a little bit off compared to the previous ones recently drunk.
Not a flawed bottle, bur just not as expressive as I’m used to.
Off bottle or just stored differently, hence being in another phase of maturity?
Still, a great wine indeed, even if not as fully expressive as expected once the bottle was revealed.

Jättespännande vin att prova, doften är i min mening aning tråkig med en källarnäsa men det är också frisk frukt och lite torkad sådan. Nypon kommer fram och jag är ganska övertygad att det är en nebbiolo jag fått i glaset. Smaken är riktigt härlig och man skulle vilja sitta ensam med detta vin och lite mat, det är nog där det gör sig bäst.

Har provat detta vin 2 gånger tidigare, första gången var det som att trilla av stolen, det golvade mig helt, andra gången, samma sak fast det var andra gången och andra gången är aldrig lika stor som första.
Nu var det dax igen och denna gång blint bland andra viner. Jag tycker att denna flaska var lite sämre än de tidigare, vinet var lite tjurigt och stängt och det tog tid att få det att öppna upp. Dock är det ju ett kanonvin, inte dåligt på något sätt, det är 95 pinnar men jag satte det blint som en Margaux tidigt nittital då jag tycker viner har de tonerna, rena snygga toner med lite begynnande stall. Fel hade jag och kanske är det min förkylning som gör att jag sätter ett så lågt betyg.

Tasted at the winery.
Very transparent and clean nose with minerals and chalk, cherries & wild strawberries, airy and perfumed & feminine.
A touch of oak present, but in no way disturbing.
On the palate this is complex, structured and rather Burgundish.
Very fine balance, fine raspberry fruit, long with good minerallity.
A very fine young Barbaresco.
