“The 2015 Langhe Chardonnay Bussiador is a lavish and exuberant white wine that is bursting with sun-ripened aromas of exotic fruit, peach, pineapple and a distant touch of cinnamon. Acidity is never a problem with Chardonnay grown in this part of Northern Italy, even in a hot vintage such as this. In fact, the wine offers lasting freshness. Malolactic fermentations also finish without issues. Some 8,500 bottles were produced. I tasted this wine on the warm side (at room temperature), and despite this fact, the mineral definition and clarity of the wine was impressive. The finish is silky, smooth and soft.”

“In 2013, the father and daughter winemaking team of Bruno and Bruna Giacosa decided not to produce their Barbaresco Asili. They made a Rabajà expression instead. Asili was vinified separately again in 2014 and more recently to create the impressive 2015 Barbaresco Asili. This wine was bottled one year ago in July and has been on the market since February. This expression offers accessible and generous fruit tones, with blackcurrant and dark plum. The wine delivers big inner power with evident tannic firmness and a point of astringency on the finish. All it needs is more time in the bottle.”

“This is the second year in which this wine was made with estate fruit (opposed to purchased fruit). Bruna Giacosa calls the 2014 Barbaresco Rabajà her “little miracle wine.” The Rabajà cru is very close to Asili, but indeed, the two corresponding wines are extremely different in character. This expression offers black fruit intensity, with sharp and classic lines. Rabajà tends to be closed in its younger years and needs extra aging time before it finds its voice. The mouthfeel is dense, brooding and slightly austere at this point.”

“Gaja's 2014 Barbaresco is rich, super-dense, and inviting, with serious underpinnings of structure and the same classicism that made the 2013 so compelling. Dense and powerful in the glass, with explosive energy and tons of tannin, the 2014 is built for extended cellaring. Expressive floral and savoury notes hover out of the glass in this super-expressive Barbaresco. This is one of the most tightly wound, intense versions of Gaja's Barbaresco I can remember tasting. Don't miss it.”

Throughout the course of its production, this wine has consistantly shown its distinct personality that is identified by the power and the elegant nature of the fruit. This cooler vintage is streamlined and tight, with a touch of berry astringency that still needs time to relax and soften.”

“Borgogno releases its wines one year later than most other producers. The 2012 Barolo Cannubi shows volume and richness, with soft layers that wrap over the palate. The Cannubi cru consists mostly of sand for the first 20 to 30 centimeters of topsoil, with thicker marlstone underground. The Cannubi cru is always the first to reach maturity. This is a delicately contained expression of Nebbiolo that releases its perfumes slowly as the wine evolves in the glass. It's performance is steady and in constant crescendo.”

“The 2012 Barolo Fossati is slightly more inward looking and introspective compared to the other cru expressions presented in this vintage. The Fossati vineyard is characterized by sandy soils and the wines made here veer towards extreme elegance and finesse. Indeed, this Barolo walks with light footsteps. The bouquet releases wild berry fruit, white cherry and dry liquorice root. The wine will take on more volume and power as it continues its bottle evolution.”

“The 2014 Barolo Cannubi from Chiara Boschis is soft, supple and surprisingly expressive given its early stage. Exotic spice and citrus overtones add to the wine's considerable allure. Succulent red cherry, cinnamon, orange peel and rose petal notes all lift from the glass in this gracious, sublime Barolo. This is one of the more accessible 2014s I tasted during my fall trip. Given its mid-weight structure, the 2014 Cannubi may turn out to have a relatively short life, but then again, Nebbiolo often surprises. Today, the wine is exceptionally beautiful.”

“A wine of power and breadth, the 2014 Barolo Mosconi has all of the textural depth that is typical of this Monforte site. Dark cherry, plum, smoke, liquorice and incense are some of the many notes that fill out the wine's generous frame. It will be interesting to see if the 2014 comes together a bit more fully with time in bottle. Today, it is decidedly virile and a touch monolithic.”

“The 2014 Barolo Via Nuova is a blend of six sites - Liste, Terlo, Ravera di Monforte, Mosconi, Gabutti and Baudana - all of which are bottled as vineyard designates by other growers. There is something about the art of the blend that can be convincing, especially in challenging vintages such as 2014. The Via Nuova is a veritable explosion of aromas, flavours and sensations. Super-ripe red cherry, plum, kirsch, cinnamon and lavender all rush from the glass. Sweet, perfumed and beautifully layered throughout, the 2014 Via Nuova is all finesse.”

“The Vigna la Rosa is located behind the gardens beyond the central cluster of buildings that make up the stunningly beautiful Fontanafredda estate. The 2013 Barolo Vigna la Rosa offers firm structure and elegance, that stylistically speaking pegs the wine closer to the more robust Serralunga d'Alba identity. This wine is aged in a combination of barrique and large oak casks. The bouquet is redolent of dark fruit and spice and there is a distant hint of roasted chestnut on the finish. It offers staying power and strength.”

SAQ code: 13787674

“The 2010 Barolo Riserva Monprivato Cà d'Morissio is one of the defining wines of this iconic vintage. This important wine was not made in 2009 or 2011. There will be releases in 2012 and 2013. However, the Mascarello family is not yet sure about 2014. If they do release the wine in that vintage, bottle production will be very small. Generally speaking, 4,000 bottles is the normal production target. There is a lot to say here, starting with the bouquet that is precisely defined and layered. You get tones of forest fruit, crushed mineral, wild sage and balsam herb. There are renderings of iodine, anise seed and liquorice as well. What stands out most is the wine's seamless integration. The tannins are firm and dry, with just enough latitude to offer future development. This wine ages in bottle for two and a half years before its commercial release. It should not be touched for at least 5 more years, preferably more.”

“Of the wines tasted this year from Giuseppe Mascarello, the 2013 Barolo Villero was the most difficult to read because it was the most shut down and closed during my tasting in April. All these wines need to get past the summer season before they start to sing their song. This is a beautifully polished and delicate wine that opens timidly to produce etched aromas of wild berry, rose and crushed mineral. The more time you spend with the wine, the more it yields and the more articulate and complex those aromas become. I started to see this within just ten minutes in front of the glass. This Barolo is compact and tight on the palate with lasting freshness that speaks so truly to the fresh qualities of this classic vintage.”

“Packaged in an extremely thick and heavy bottle, the 2008 Barolo Riserva Bussia is a densely layered expression of Nebbiolo with broad aromas of black fruit, prune and exotic spice. The grapes are macerated on the skins for 21 days, and the wine is later aged in barrique for 36 months. The oak imprint is indeed strong, and you will recognize tones of clove, cinnamon and smoked cedar wood. You will taste oak-related sweetness as well and tight tannins at the back. The softer and more accessible side of the wine comes from its aged tertiary aromas of liquorice and balsam herb.”

“With robust fruit exclusively sourced from Serralunga d'Alba, the 2014 Barolo Ornato is a bold and loosely knit red wine. Keeping in line with the characteristics of this celebrated vineyard site, the wine offers extra density, softness and texture. The results are plump with ripe fruit, spice and Spanish cedar. The finish is smooth and silky. This vintage of Pio Cesare's single-vineyard Barolo is better consumed in the near and medium term. The wine is aged in botte grande and barrique. Some 10,000 bottles were made.”

“This wine blew me away. The 2009 Barolo Riserva Granbussia is a proud achievement and an expression of rare beauty. This wine will be released this fall, some nine years after the harvest. Only 3,000 bottles were produced. The Granbussia narrative is one of elegance and refinement. The fruit comes from two vineyard parcels in the greater Bussia cru and was co-fermented (instead of being blended after malolactic fermentation). So much fruit was dropped during the summer growing cycle that the harvest came later than usual. This allowed for slow, even ripening and a deeper sense of aromatic complexity that you immediately identify here. The nose is redolent of wet earth and autumnal leaf with white truffle and forest berry. The wine offers extreme Nebbiolo purity with anise seed, tar and liquorice.”

The black cherry, lavender, menthol, liquorice and dark spice flavours take on shades of gravitas and exoticism in this deep, structured Barolo from Roberto Voerzio.”

In 2014, though, Voerzio manages to temper some of that tannic edge. Dark cherry and plum fruit are nicely rendered in this surprisingly silky, unctuous Barolo. Blood orange, spice, menthol and liquorice grow in the glass as the wine's upper register begins to emerge over time. This is a remarkably harmonious young Barolo.”

“In many ways, the gorgeous 2014 Barolo Lazzarito is the most surprising wine in its range. Once a stylistic outlier with a considerable French oak influence, today it is much closer to the other Barolos in terms of feel. Deep, dark and intense, with all of the energy of the year very much on display, the Lazzarito is super-expressive and shows a more red-toned profile than is the norm. Kirsch, mint, rose petal and chalk all develop in the glass, while beams of tannin and salinity give the wine shape and persistence. The weight and depth of Serralunga come through on the mid-palate and into the finish. Even so, this is in a decidedly laid-back style for Serralunga. In 2014, I especially like the wine's aromatic presence.”

Today, the 2014 is a bit austere, even within the context of the year and this site, where the wines are a bit on the nervous side to start. I have seen Vietti Raveras blossom into spectacular wines and imagine that that will be the case here as well. Readers should not plan on opening a bottle anytime soon.”
