2009 Prunotto Barolo Bussia (Pre-Arrival, Elsewhere $80)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From one of the most celebrated vineyards in Monforte d'Alba, the 2009 Barolo Bussia shows a tad more color and concentration upon first inspection. As expected, it also follows through with bigger aromas of dried cherry, spice and dark licorice, but nothing is out of place. It never abandons its promise of understated elegance. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028." (6/2013) 94 points James Suckling: "This smells like top Burgundy with light earth, flowers and berries. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a beautiful palate of subtle yet intense fruits and a long, long finish. Wonderf ...Read More »

2014 Fratelli Barale Langhe Nebbiolo

These grapes come from a vineyard planted in 1975 in the commune of Monforte d'Alba, fermented in 50hl wooden casks for 10 days and then aged in 15-30hl French oak barrels for one year. The wine is a classic Old World style Nebbiolo, very light in color but exceptionally well adapted for meals — foods with a more woodsy (mushroom or truffle) character, or poultry.

2012 Fratelli Barale Barolo

91 points Vinous: "The 2012 Barolo Vendemmia is a very pretty entry-level offering from Barale. Sweet floral and spice notes meld into red cherry, tobacco, licorice and leather. Lifted and aromatically expressive, with good depth, the 2012 impresses for its balance and overall harmony. Best of all, the 2012 will drink well with minimal cellaring. The Barolo Vendemmia is a blend of fruit from the Preda, Monrobiolo and Coste di Rose vineyards." (11/2016)

The Bava winery is in the Province of Alba where Barbera is King! So what do you do when you want to make Nebbiolo? Hmmmm, you can't put it on the label…Damn. The Bava Brothers, a creative bunch, decided to go American and name this wine after a real American tradition, Band-Aids, (evidently at a winery you go through a lot of them). So Johnson & Johnson was too long, they switched to Johnson but that's unpronounceable for an Italian so …..Gionson! That's how you say Johnson in Italian!

2013 Silvano Bolmida "Frales" Langhe Nebbiolo

The Langhe Nebbiolo is 100% Nebbiolo, harvested in the beginning of October. It spends a brief 6-7 day fermentation on the skins and then is aged in barrique for 10 months on the lees. The result is a fresher, lower alcohol (12.5%) Nebbiolo that is drinkable yet still complex and flavorful. The perfect accompaniment to lighter pasta dishes or chicken.

Ripe, silky tannins wrap around the voluptuous, engaging finish.

The wine is full and generous with tones of dark fruit, spice, balsam herb, licorice and dried mint. The best Nebbiolo fruit goes toward Roddolo's Barolo, but the 2009 vintage saw a good crop for both the production of the higher- and lower-tier wines. (ML)" (6/2015)

The Val del Prete vineyard is situated on three acres of south-facing hillside in Piemonte's Roero DOCG. The 30+ year old Nebbiolo vines are biodynamically farmed in the calcareous soil and produce a ripe, yet delicate and perfumed wine. The grapes are macerated and slowly fermented before being racked into French oak barrels where the wine spends 16 months before bottling. A spicy and floral perfume with crushed raspberry and cherry reverberate on a medium-bodied frame with an open and alluring finish.
