Barbera d’Alba 2017 308kr (New Vinatage)
Cavallotto’s barbera supriore is excellent. 2017 is not my favorite vintage, but when you’re a good winemaker, you make good wines in any vintage. This is a barbera that has excellent aging potential. It spends 15-18 months in big barrels and then 6 months in the bottle before it’s release. Good acidity, dark fruits, intense – perfect with pasta or pizza.
Langhe Nebbiolo 2017 280kr (New Vintage)
Cavallotto makes their Langhe Nebbiolo almost like a barolo. The grapes come from the Barrolo Cru vineyards and spend 15-18 months in big barrels after a long fermentation. The tannins are quite persistent, but the fruit shines through and lasts a while in the mouth. Can drink now, but I’d keep it for a little bit.
Moccagatta Barbaresco Bric Balin 2016 575kr (New Vintage)
I’ve recently been served this blind, and I was mega impressed. 2016 is a big vintage, but the tannins disappear quite quickly and you’re left with an impressive fruit boquet.
Vietti Barolo Castiglione
While we’re waiting for the 2016 Barolo’s from Vietti, the 2015 is drinking quite nicely right now!
Shhhh don’t tell anyone, but the 2016 Barolo from Trediberri will be released tomorrow! I’ve only ever tried it directly from a freshly bottles bottle, but I can tell you that the wine is INCREDIBLE.
