    April 28, 2019 - A Barolo that you can drink and enjoy at young age. Recommended.

    April 7, 2019 - Not blown away, A bit meh. I really wanted it to be brilliant, but it was a bit clunky, well made but noting thrilling here, middle of the road, didn’t have the mineral highlights of say Roagna or the floral notes of someone like Burlotto, and is pretty much in the same ball park price wise. From memory these guys are using roto-fermenters? Perhaps I just prefer the longer traditional fermentation style, perhaps it was the fact the glassware wasn’t the best for Nebb, perhaps it’s the slight cold I’ve got, perhaps perhaps perhaps... Decanted for an hour before drinking.

    December 30, 2018 - Glass purchase at the Refectory. Very accessible for such a young wine from such a traditional producer. Prototypical Barolo flavors without the searing tannins of 2010.

    May 27, 2018 - From the wine list at Charlie Bird. Decanted and served - improved with some time in the decanter - so decant earlier if you have time or better yet hold for another 5 years. Compared to the '11 Borgogno Barolo I had earlier in the evening this has a lot more potential but still too young. The nose has some of that pretty Barolo fragrance. On the palate still a bit tight with some grippy tannins but the dark fruits, earthiness and florals are lurking under the surface. Paired really nicely with some pasta dishes.

    January 25, 2018 - Medium red-orange colour. At opening muted, hints of red fruits. One hour in the glass it opens up, revealing red cherries, hint of raspberry and herbs (anise or sweet liqorice?). still more air added mint (mynthe) some muted tobacco tones (cedar box), pottery and maybe roses.

    Abundant tannins, completely dominating the first seconds, good acidity as well. When these first attacks are over, the fruit comes as dark cherries. Long finish. 18/20p with lot of potential
