Cellar/Tasting Notes "The 2008 Barolo Cannubi sweeps across the palate with layers of dark red fruit, flowers, subtle French oak, mint, licorice and spices. This is an especially pliant, generous 2008 laced with expressive fruit and fabulous overall balance. The south-facing Cannubi yields a juicier more fruit-driven..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "Beautiful aromas of orange zest are followed by gingerbread, caramel and crème brûlée flavors. This is a beautiful, rich, smoothly dense wine with a core of botrytis, spice and vivid fresh citrus acidity."
Cellar/Tasting Notes "Shows dried pineapple, honey, pear, caramel and piecrust aromas. Full-bodied and very sweet, with spice, coconut, tropical fruit and apple tart flavors. Long and dense, yet lively. Best after 2013."
Cellar/Tasting Notes "Elegant acacia blossom, lemon zest, stone and pain grille suffused nose... excellent intensity... lovely depth on the mouth coating and impressively persistent finish... a wine of class and grace."
Cellar/Tasting Notes "Straight down the line, this wine shows fruit and acidity. The tannins are relatively soft while the fruit is forward. Blackberries, coffee and licorice notes all come together."
Cellar/Tasting Notes "This is quite ripe with its earthy and distinctly sauvage nose of dark berry fruit, plum and violet aromas. There is excellent volume to the very rich and textured large-scaled flavors that possess an impressively persistent, complex, velvety and mouth coating finish. This is well-balanced and..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "This is also quite ripe with earthy black cherry, plum, earth and spice hints preceding the solidly mineral-driven medium-bodied flavors that also possess unusually fine tannins that contribute to the refined mouth feel of the moderately structured and beautifully complex finish. As with virtually..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "Light, bright gold, with a hint of green. Ripe pear and orange on the nose, with notes of nougat and yellow plum adding complexity. Smooth and fleshy in the mouth, offering juicy orchard and pit fruit flavors sharpened by a spicy nuance. The spicy finish features solid punch and good focus."
Cellar/Tasting Notes "The dark-colored, structured, elegant 1998 Barolo Costa Grimaldi offers purity and harmony allied with power, density, and extract. While relatively seamless for such a young Einaudi Barolo, there is plenty of tannin underneath the glycerin and fruit. I suspect it is only a matter of time before..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "The 2006 Barolo Riserva Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppe is a cool, inward wine. It boasts striking power and masses of fruit in an implosive style that will require many years to show at its best. The 2006 is all about sheer energy, power and muscle. Layers of fruit begin to flesh out on the..
