Pretty advanced, maybe an off bottle but would rather drink up than hold much longer.

Very good, excellent structure, quite long aftertaste. A variety I will definitely buy more.

Last time I liked it more as it was more finessed. This time it was very much Pechstein, i.e. full of power.

Very good, already showing some small hints of aging, don't wait too long opening one if you own a couple of bottles.

Out of memory, fantastic wine, highly complex, still too young.

Liked it but was not overwhelmed like so many other reviewers. Compared to a lot of other 2016 Nebbiolo I found this rather underwhelming. Time will tell. Will open the next only in 5 years.

This one has developed extremely well since opening my first bottle approx. 1.5 years ago.

Amazing Kabinett, so good now but will improve over many years.

Incredible for a Langhe Nebbiolo. 92-93. The 2017 was a tick better in my opinion.

Wonderful wine, in my view fully mature but will hold up for a couple of years. Pretty dark aromas on the nose but wonderfully spicy on the palate. Like the style!

Wonderful to drink now, fresh, good acidity, lime, minerality, good long aftertaste

This is a serious Barbaresco with all the right elements. It is extremely well made and all the elements are there to make it a wonderful bottle in 5-10 years. My rating is based on today's showing, it clearly has upside of 2-3 points.

Wow, this was just one of the best "normale" Barolos I've had so far. It really flashed me. Wonderful fruit, smooth, great mouthfeel and a nose to die for. Can't wait to taste the crus from 2016!

If I am not mistaken this is a special cask and some kind of reserve wine. It is classified as an "Ortswein" or village level in the VDP hierarchy. The winery told me that the each cask from Hallgarten in 2018 was very special so they bottled several separately, this is one of those. Another will be the Hallgarten R which will be available i September 2020. The Hallgarten here was a very fine, wonderful wine. It offered lovely aromas of yellow fruits, some passion fruit and great minerality. Long aftertaste. This is Ortswein at a new level!

One of the best Kabinetts I had in the last 12 months. Great acidity and great sweetness. Very early, will be incredible once everything melds together.

This was another striking Miani bottle. The nose showed very very fine white and yellow fruit aromas, mostly pineapple and lychee plus a hint of orange zest. The wine enters the mouth with the same fineness and then the Miani factor hits you: The wine becomes strikingly powerful with an almost extreme level of concentration in the mid palate. It is like dancing on the razors edge but the wine never shows a sharp alcohol side or the like. The aftertaste was medium long, here I would have loved a little bit longer one. Still a very remarkable and unforgettable wine!

Wonderful feinherb Riesling. It is what it is, feinherb mouthfeel, relatively short aftertaste but a wonderful nose full of muted tropical flavors.

Wonderful bottle, lifted, bright red fruit, fine tannins, still on the very young side. Can be drunk now but has years ahead of it.

This is a really really good Sauvignon Blanc, punching much above its price class!

This was really good, wonderful cabernet nose, velvety mouthfeel, just the after taste a bit short to be a truly great wine. This was the WOTN or many casual wine drinkers today.

This is a fantastic Barolo in the making. Bright, clear and lifted with wonderful aromatics and a mid-weight structure. Irresistible right now but will certainly improve further with more bottle age!

This is an extremely good and especially serious wine in its price class. Great firm structure, tons of acidity which will carry the wine in the coming lots of years and some orange fruit aromas. This will get better and better in the next years. Will certainly buy some more.

Again a very nice bottle, still very primary so no need to open one now. On a table with some casual wine drinkers this was the wine of the night, really a "crowd pleaser".

This was round and smooth and very much accessible. Fruit forward and this time a lot of oak notes still. Wait 2-3 years so that everything is well integrated. Interestingly, some casual wine drinkers didn't like to style at all and I thought it was a very good wine also for beginners.

Agree with Rechrom on his notes. This bottle was good, it showed nice fruit and the beginning of the evolution of tertiary notes. However, it was a bit too simple and not overly complex. Given the price point (this was the library edition Sibi et Paucis) it was kind of a disappointment. My expectations were high for this bottle.

Difficult to rate at the moment. A good wine with lot of the right elements, needs to integrate further and gain complexity

Still very young and fresh, very drinkable, lacked a bit the "Christoffel factor" of other bottles. Enjoyed it a lot.

This was showing wonderfully. Great structure, wonderful round and plush red berry aromas. Rather soft tannins. Much better than the last bottle I had ca. 2 years ago. Decanted approx. 3 hours prior to drinking. Can be drunk now but will stay for years.

This was almost undrinkable at day 1, very sharp, almost nothing on the nose. Day 2 it showed quite nice, day 3 it was pretty flat and again very sharp.

Really really good on the first day, pretty dead at the second. Too old already? Can't image so no rating at the moment. Will try the next bottle soon. 90+

Incredible. The nose is one of the best I have ever had in a Barolo, tons of wild strawberries and cherries. Palate is of fantastic structure, lots of cherries, a bit tar and still young tannins.

Difficult to assess, somehow the elements were not at all in harmony. The wine is definitely not in its drinking window right now but I don't think it is in decline. Better wait 2-3 years from now.

This might slightly be an off bottle with some heat damage, so take my note with caution. On the first day the nose showed beautiful aromas of plum and cherries, a hint of vanilla. Mid weight mouthfeel, lots of plum again and almost fully resolved tannins. Medium aftertaste. On day two the wine was almost dead, just showing some earthy plum aromas and not a long aftertaste as well. Can imagine that the score will be slightly higher if the bottle was super sound. Still a great drinking experience.
