2003 Roagna Barbaresco Pajè Nebbiolo

Absolutely smashing, the 2003 Pajé delivers the most exquisit Nebbiolo perfume full of sour cherry, Amaretto, sweet almond, red currant and a profound complexity. There are secondary tones of wet saddle leather and subtle cacao. The palate adds astonishingly well to the other components. It is completely integrated and perfectly balanced. Acidity is of course still dominant and that makes this effort a lovely food companion. A lot of wine aficionados claim this vintage is atypical. I find this wine utterly compelling and one of the better Barbarescos I have tasted on several occasions. Most likely in a perfect drinking phase right now, this wine has never performed better in previous tastings. (score is 94+)

En blommig lite söt doft med mörka körsbär, plommon och tobak.
I smaken redan väldigt tillgängligt med även här lite söta toner av mörka körsbär, tobak, väldigt silkiga och polerade tanniner, fin syra. Väldigt lång och fin eftersmak med en touch av russin.
Ett väldigt tillgängligt och bra vin men inte i närheten av årgång 2008 som är helt magiskt bra.

2011 G.D. Vajra Dolcetto d'Alba Coste & Fossati
3/13/2014 - MJHDC wrote:
These are old vines, and Coste and Fossati are within the Barolo DOCG. As for the wine itself, it is, relative to some other dolcetto, a bit darker and more concentrated. There is a good deal of structure but I find it quite accessible because the tannins are generally soft. Very food-friendly and hard to beat as a high-quality "weeknight" wine.

2010 Marcarini Dolcetto d'Alba Boschi di Berri

Like cherry liqour. Sharp. This is not good.

2006 Pio Cesare Barbera d'Alba Fides

Heavy toast on the nose: tar, burnt wood, espresso, liquorice, dark chocolate, vanilla... you get the picture. Deep and rounded on the palate, dense black fruit, slightly inky, acids blurred by the oak which also imparts some bitter tannins. Still fairly young, actually. Other tasters were quite enthusiastic about this bottle - two out of five even held it as their favourite among five barberas including 06 G Conterno, 08 B Mascarello, 06 Cappellano and 04 Roagna - but it wasn't much fun to us. Last bottle, won't buy again, ever.
