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.

This is an especially large-scaled, ample entry-level Barbaresco that shows just how compelling this vintage is here in the Barbaresco zone. Ripe, silky tannins wrap around the voluptuous, engaging finish. The Barbaresco emerges from a parcel just outside Montestefano with a more northerly exposure that in this vintage helped preserve nuance and precision.

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)

2010 Bava Barbaresco

This small selection of Barbaresco comes from a single vineyard, according to the producer: "Ageing in wood, this wine develops harmonious sensations with floral and spicy notes and an intense colour. Solid structure leading to great elegance which is typical of Nebbiolo for Barbaresco. We wanted a soft and enveloping wine, surely complex, but also able to combine the austere tones of the great Nebbiolo with more tenuous and elegant scents."

Best of all, the 2012 won't need years to come together. Mascarello fans should buy the 2012 to drink over the near and medium-term, while some of the more structured vintages age in the cellar.

Here the fruit boasts tons of pure resonance and stuffing while never losing its essential classicism. Plums, black cherries, leather, tar and licorice meld together, supported by firm yet beautifully integrated tannins. The 2008 Brunate is an explosive wine just waiting to emerge. When it does, it should be striking. Actually, it already is. (AG)" (10/2012)

2011 Giacomo Fenocchio "Bussia" Barolo

92 points James Suckling: "Walnut, berry and milk chocolate character on the nose and palate. Full and chewy with round and soft tannins and a savory finish. Better in 2017." (4/2015) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Aromatic, offering rose, peony, strawberry and cherry notes, picking up tobacco and licorice accents on the palate. Elegant and long, with licorice and spice details trailing on the finish. Best from 2018 through 2032." (8/2015)

2012 Elio Grasso "Ginestra Casa Maté" Barolo

96 points Vinous: "Dark, rich, and enveloping, the 2012 Barolo Ginestra Casa Matè wraps around the palate with serious intensity. The flavors are deep and boldly sketched throughout. Plum, black cherries, menthol, licorice and cloves build to the voluptuous, explosive finish. The Barolo Ginestra Vigna Casa Matè is another wine that is going to require considerable time in bottle, but it is fabulous, even at this very early stage. The Casa Matè is one of the most vivid, dramatic Barolos of the vintage. (AG)" (3/2016) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Barolo Ginestra Casa Maté is a thickly layered and ...Read More »

2011 Rivella Barbaresco "Montestefano"

93 points Vinous: "93+: The 2011 Barbaresco Montestefano presents more depth and darkness than the straight Barbaresco, but the two wines aren't that different, which is common in warmer vintages that tend to flatten out vineyard differences. Part of this fruit was fermented in French oak barrels that confer added depth, volume and tannin, none of which Montestefano lacks, in my view. As such, the 2011 could use a few years in bottle to fully come together. It is deeply impressive today, though. That much is obvious. Hints of sage, smoke, lavender and dried flowers add nua ...Read More »

2014 Le Piane "Maggiorina" Piemonte

Vinous: "The 2014 Maggiorina is a fabulous choice for readers on a budget. Floral, mid-weight and bright, the Maggiorina captures the essence of Alto Piedmonte. Sweet red cherry, tobacco, mint, pine and crushed flowers are some of the signatures in this delicate, lithe, high acid red. (AG)" (4/2016)

2012 Castello di Verduno Barbaresco

91 points Vinous: "The 2012 Barbaresco is a terrific example of the vintage at its best. Freshly cut roses, sweet red berries, mint and cinnamon all lift from the glass. Mid-weight and refreshing, with lively acidity to balance the radiant fruit, the 2012 is everything Barbaresco can be; open-knit, seductive and just plain delicious. Drink it over the next handful of years. I hadn't tasted the Castello di Verduno wines in a number of years, so I was very pleased to get reacquainted with this historic producer. The wines have improved dramatically over the last few years, b ...Read More »
