Here we have 3 interesting wines: Barolo, Monferrato Nebbiolo and Dolcetto.

Giacomo Borgogno has changed its style, the Barolo can now be drunk with pleasure at a young age: The Giacomo Borgogno 2017 Barolo Liste has everything which a great Barolo needs, tar, rose petals, herbs, some moss and undergrowth, some blackberries, a full-body, a lot of polished tannin and a long finish. 18.3/20 points.

If you want Nebbiolo but don't want to spend the money on Barolo or Barbaresco, then a regular Nebbiolo is your wine. There are many Nebbiolo d'Alba, Langhe Nebbiolo or Monferrato Nebbiolo with excellent value for money. The Romano Dogliotti 2020 Monferrato Nebbiolo Superiore Sfacciato has liquorice, tar, undergrowth, a full-body, a long finish and is relatively balanced and dense. Don't expect too much complexity. 17/20 points.

Dolcetto is also excellent value for money, it is never expensive and always at least very good. In the wine shop of Castello di Grinzane Cavour you can get the special selected wines of the "Ordine dei Cavalieri del Tartufo e dei Vini di Alba". They select particularly good wines and give them a special label. And so is Ascheri 2021 Langhe Dolcetto Nirane. The wine has elderberry, blackberry, blossoms, some honey, a full-body, lots of fruit, balance and a long finish. 17.8/20 points. The 2021 vintage was particularly fruity for Barbera and Dolcetto.
