    November 28, 2015 - A Conterno Tre Pile 2010 vs Spinetta Ca Di Pian 2009:
    - Beide recht konzentriert
    - Spinetta ist moderner, starke Beerenfrucht, etwas Holz aber schön integriert
    - Conterno etwas herber, komplexer und weniger frisch. Aber auch ein "ernsthafterer" Wein.
    - Für mich ist Conterno heute der Sieger

    October 18, 2015 - Definitely plum on the nose. Also seems to suggest garlic. Both repeat on the palette. Tannins are soft. It's good. Best with food.

    April 6, 2015 - Spinetta Barbera 2009 vs Sandrone Nebbiolo 2010
    - Direkt aus dem Keller geöffnet und probiert; deshalb zunächst zu kalt
    - In der Farbe nicht zu unterscheiden
    - Im Bouquet wirkt der Barbera etwas fruchtiger
    - Dieses bestätigt sich im Geschmack - der Barbera ist etwas süßer (Bromberre vs Kirsche). Ansonsten beides sehr runde und schöne Weine
    - Der Nebbiolo schmeckt wie ein kleiner Barolo, hat aber hinten raus im Vergleich nicht viel; es fehlt das Tannin- und Säure-Gerüst
    - Der Nebbiolo ist mein Favorit

    March 12, 2015 - Black cherry, spice and leather on the nose. Medium plus bodied, with nice dark black cherry and sweet red fruit. Nice dryness to the tannins, which lead into a medium length finish with a slightly bitter aftertaste.

    February 4, 2015 - Plum and ether on the nose; on the palate, tart cherry, plum, and notes of anise and vanilla, with moderate acidity and a medium finish. Good, but nothing special, and average value at $20.
