2015 Cascina Chicco Langhe Nebbiolo

Very approachable and easy drinking young Nebbiolo wine. It’s correct, dry, with supple lines and a round style. But…it’s on night #2 that it shows more of its material, its complexity (there really was realluy very little on night #1, just juicy goodness). 98 more words

Really impressed with this - 2011 Cascina Chicco Roero Riserva Valmaggiore

It’s not often (enough!) that I’ve got a glass of wine that makes me repeat, like a broken record (dating myself here, oh well) exclamations, like wow!, and fantastic!, or really?, that’s amazing!; this was one of those wines/experiences. 488 more words

Recommended New Releases from Italy

Time to get caught up on new releases from Italy, beginning with a terrific dry Riesling:

2015 Ettore Germano Riesling “Hérzu” – For several years, Sergio Germano of Serralunga d’Alba, in the Barolo zone, has been releasing a dry Riesling from a vineyard near Dogliani. 837 more words

Roero Nebbiolo

Lucked into a bottle of Matteo Correggia’s 2007 Roero, a 100% nebbiolo that was a delight with some spinach and mushroom pasta.  Not as powerful as a Barolo from that year (a good one), the tannins had softened quite a bit making it quite quaffable if not overly booming.   66 more words
