I am here to share with you my three decades of experience as a journalist and a wine critic through the tasting notes, videos, blogs, and events of jamessuckling.com. I focus primarily on the wines of Italy and Bordeaux, but I have a strong interest in wines from all over the world, particularly California and Australia. I am also passionate about food, wine, cigars and other good things in life. 

BAROLO 2014

  • Anno: 2018
  • Guida: James Suckling.com
  • Punteggio: 90
  • Note: Aromas of strawberries and cherries with some rose petals and stem. Medium body, fine tannins and a fresh, clean finish. Drink now.

BAROLO BRUNATE 2014

  • Anno: 2018
  • Guida: James Suckling.com
  • Punteggio: 92
  • Note: Lots of herbs to this Barolo, as well elderflower, dried lavender and spices. The acidity is pretty edgy on the palate, but the fruit is all there. The tannins are firm yet ripe enough to make this juicy on the finish. Drink in 2020

BAROLO ROCCHE DI CASTIGLIONE 2014

  • Anno: 2018
  • Guida: James Suckling.com
  • Punteggio: 93
  • Note: This shows some lovely intensity on the nose with dried plums, glazed cherries, creme de cassis and a touch of herbal liqueur. Shows a sturdy tannin backbone with great tension and balance of fruit and acidity. Drink in 2022.

BAROLO VIGNA RIONDA RISERVA 2008

  • Anno: 2018
  • Guida: James Suckling.com
  • Punteggio: 94
  • Note: So much truffle and chanterelle character to this late-release Barolo in addition to tobacco, cedar, figs, dried rose petals and Chinese spices. Full-bodied with delicious chewiness to the tannins, mouthwatering acidity and a long, very spicy finish. Drink in 2020.

BAROLO BRUNATE 2013

  • Anno: 2018
  • Guida: James Suckling.com
  • Punteggio: 94
  • Note: Aromas of rose petals and rose stems with hints of white truffles and ripe strawberries. Full-bodied, chewy and rich with lots of tannins and fruit. Flavorful and long. Needs two or three years for it to start to resolve the tannins. Try in 2021.

BARBARESCO GALLINA 2015

  • Anno: 2018
  • Guida: James Suckling.com
  • Punteggio: 95
  • Note: Extremely aromatic with dried flowers and ripe strawberries, which follow through to medium body with fine and silky tannins. A long and flavorful finish. Yet, it always remains fresh and refined. Drink or hold.

BAROLO BUSSIA VIGNA MONDOCA RISERVA 2012

  • Anno: 2018
  • Guida: James Suckling.com
  • Punteggio: 97
  • Note: The purity of fruit here is stunning. A cascade of all kinds of fruit tea precedes a fanfare of blueberry peel, bright lemons, heather, freshly pressed lavender, orange rind and grapefruit skin. Full body, bright acidity and layered fruit that’s taken on a long, seemingly endless ride on the finish. So refined and delicate yet powerful and forthcoming. Delicious now, but better in 2022 and a long time after that.
