92 Points, James Suckling
An absolute treat coming out of Piedmont. Open this one a good deal before you plan to serve and let it get some air. The nose is very pretty with cherry, cassis and dried currant. Red fruits on the palate with nuanced dash of cigar smoke, wild berry preserves, and tobacco. It’ll be a show stopper in a year or two but it’s starting to really hit its stride right now.
100 Points, Luca Gardini
This one earned a miraculous and uber rare 100-point score from tough Italian wine, Luca Gardini. Gardini emphatically defended his 100-point score saying he felt compelled to as it is the best Langhe Nebbiolo he has ever tasted with such a strong stylistic approach that he had to reward for its excellence. He’s not wrong either. This is flag out amazing juice and should cost 3 or 4 times the price. I took every bottle in the state, making this a Nicholas NJ exclusive.
Across the board, Sergio’s wines enjoy an incredible vibrancy. They are big wines with such a streak of elegance, a quality rare in any part of the wine world. His newly released 2020 Barbera d’Alba was fermented and aged in a steel tank so it is completely about the fruit, no oak influence here. It’s clean, concentrated, zipped up Barbera, as good a food wine as any we have offered at Nicholas Wines.

“You get tremendous value from the Paitin 2019 Barbera d’Alba Serra, which is fruity and bright but beautifully elegant as well. Barbera is known for its rich black fruit flavors and accessible personality, so it’s a real treat to taste a wine that puts so much emphasis on the smaller details offered by the grape. These include tart blueberry, white cherry, exotic spice and crushed stone. There is some softness on the close, but the wine will be remembered for the linear and pristine nature of its fruit.” – The Wine Advocate
