96 Points, Antonio Galloni- Vinous
“The 2017 Barolo Ginestra Casa Matè is a dark, mysterious wine. Black cherry, menthol, tobacco, licorice, spice, new leather and pine meld together in a super-classic expression of Ginestra. Deep, rich and enveloping, the 2017 is so impressive in the early going. Here, too, the finesse of the tannins is remarkable.” – Antonio Galloni
The newly released and highly charged 2020 Grasso Langhe Nebbiolo is a classic Nebbiolo from a warm but even growing season, that looks to be pretty strong from early indications. It explodes from the glass with complex aromatics of crushed black raspberry jam, strawberry currants and baking spice. A rich mouthfeel of sweet floral and red berries flavors leads to a stony, firm finish that goes on forever. So stinking good.
95 Points, Wine Spectator (#1 Barbaresco in WS Monthly Insider)
Wine Spectator recently dropped a list of all their best Barbarescos for their late August Insider Edition. Big name players such as Gaja’s 2018 Barbaresco (94 pts, $260/btl) the Ca’ Rome Rio Sorda Riserva Barbaresco (93 pts, $125/btl) and Falletto’s Barbaresco Rabaja (93 pts, $265/btl) were amongst the highlights of the vintage. But winemaking guru Elvio Cogno once again found their name at the top with their powerhouse Bordini Barbaresco, priced at a fraction of the others, but nonetheless taking the cake as top dog. For the fourth generation winemakers, their wines’ excellence seems to have no bounds.
One of my absolute favorite places to look for great Tuesday nighters is Asti. Although it is better known for the Moscato, Nebbiolo could be its calling card because in very few places of the world does it thrive like it does here. Gianni Doglia naturally farms a tiny estate in the picturesque hamlet of Castagnole Lanze. His Monferrato Rosso is 100% Nebbiolo, the product of old vines, vinfied without oak to preserve its incredible fruit. Purple to its core, bright and wonderfully aromatic, this is food-friendly, Pizza Wine red wine that can double just as well all on its own.
