  • 2009 Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco

    Some might say this was opened too soon, but no complaints. Nice floral nose, got the roses going on, but over time a bit of camphor or balsamic slightly comes up. This can be unpleasant elsewhere but it just added a nice bit of complexity. In the mouth, some sweet cherry, fine tannins, more of those aromatics. Had this a year ago at the Produttori and it was nowhere near this good. Hard to call any wine a bargain at $30, but it's a value play for the quality, showing off the elegant side of nebbiolo. Wish I had bought a half case at the time.

  • 2010 Louis Latour Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Ile des Vergelesses

    Yes, it's good $15 PN. So I don't mind having it with mac 'n' cheese on a Tuesday. Better than some random $15 Bourgogne or PN from Castle Rock, but not exactly screaming terroir. Cherry, a little leaf, nice but light tannin, not overwhelmed with oak or other dressing up, crunchy acids.

  • 2010 Francesco Borgogno Langhe Nebbiolo

    Someone said that nebbiolo was the grape for winemakers who have mastered pinot and are ready to move on. I think that might understate the challenge of making great Barolo and Barbaresco, although it can succeed in many styles. This is a different wine, light, not hugely complex, but clearly nebbiolo. Tannins are fine but a little gritty, as the youth of the wine suggests. Acids are taut and mouth-watering. Roses in the aroma, a little spice and baking powder, all of which carries through to the palate, with the addition of cherry and herbal notes. For a $24 wine, the finish is pretty long. I can see, for the right price, this or Vietti's Perbacco as semi-daily drinkers in place of PN, especially in good vintages.
