2016 Fratelli Alessandria Barolo San Lorenzo di Verduno Nebbiolo

Tannins profound finesse grained and plenty, but pleasant to enjoy already now. Wine flavors more dark and rustic and not so much Verduno style. No oak, tar or medical - more dry roses. High acidity.

Nearly 50 bottles of Fratelli 2016 Barolo in stock, so I do trust this will be much better some years from now.

    12/23/20, 2:54 PM - San Lorenzo is found in Verduno and in Barolo (Cannubi). This wine should be from commune Verduno. I’ve tasted it since 2011-2016 against Monvigliero.

2016 Cavallotto Barolo Bricco Boschis Nebbiolo

Tasted 3 times this month incl a 98-100 Parker/Galloni top 10 Barolo 2016 tasting where only Burlotto Canubi surpassed. This evening a full bottle.

This one stands out with its cool fruit, energy and delicate taste that last forever. The tannins are there for sure, but very smooth and the balance is awesome. More balance and delicacy than weight and power. Dryness that is often seen ie. in same wine in 2013 is not so profound, but some years (+5) waiting will do good. Might close down and hide its beautiful red fruit and notes of licorice, iron, dry roses and tar. Be sure it will come around even better.

    I did taste it over 2 days - kept it cool and with cork reinserted. It was better on day two. I would suggest to give it at least two hours decanting. Done this with many Barolo 2016 ie. just now with Alessandra Fratelli 2016 normale🍷

2015 Digioia-Royer Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Nuits Pinot Noir

Profound forrest and fruity nose. Well balanced, medium long. Must come from CM declassified fruit based on both nose and taste. Very well made.

    Some wines fluctuate quite a lot even on one day for the next either caused by the moon/biodynamic calender or bottle variations. So even if I drink two identical bottles same evening, I would give two notes unless they are similar.
