Cellar/Tasting Notes "Dense, bold and beautiful, with notes of plush cherry, blackberry, clove, cinnamon, cola and dried rosemary. Polished, with a dusty, silky feel to the long finish."
Cellar/Tasting Notes "Aged in traditional oak casks for six long years, Bertani’s beautiful 2004 Amarone delivers the best of Valpolicella. It shows beautiful complexity and elegance that is articulated by tobacco, brown sugar, cassis and sweet tobacco flavors. There’s substance and length on the close with a..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "The 2008 Barolo Cicala is beautifully focused and vibrant from start to finish. It boasts fabulous energy and sheer tension in its ripe red berries, spices, crushed flowers and mint. All the elements come together beautifully in this pure, delineated Barolo. Huge, powerful tannins provide the..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "(a new wine for Altare, from a recently replanted vineyard he rents in Serralunga) Dark red. Lovely floral lift to the flavors of blackberry, violet, tar, licorice and spicecake. At once sweet and serious, with highly concentrated flavors of currant, minerals and camphor. A more muscular style..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "This is a superb set of wines from Giorgio Rivetti. The 2008 Barbareschi are among the strongest wines of the year, while the 2007 Barolo Campe is the best wine to emerge from Rivetti’s vineyards in Grinzane Cavour. The La Spinetta style focusing on wines of great textural richness remains intact,..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "The 2008 Barolo Brunate emerges from the glass with a vivid, kaleidoscopic bouquet redolent of pine, sage, spices, new leather and licorice. There is gorgeous detail and nuance in the glass. The 2008 is a refined Brunate that shows the pedigree of this great site in its intensity. The tannins are..
Cellar/Tasting Notes “Aromas of blueberries and minerals, with hints of flowers. Full body, with silky tannins and a fresh, clean finish. Chewy, yet polished.”
Cellar/Tasting Notes "Pretty textbook Brunello with smooth bright berry nuances packed in a traditional, tight body. Good acidity and firmness with well structured, silky tannin."
Cellar/Tasting Notes The 2000 vintage of Rivetti's best wine received 98 points from The Wine Spectator. The 2001 has even more stuffing and structure, if that can be imagined. A true Grand Cru Barolo!
Cellar/Tasting Notes "The 2006 Barolo Romirasco offers up a refined bouquet of spices, menthol, plums, prunes and French oak. This is an especially rich, sensual Barolo from Conterno. The Romirasco spends an additional 3-4 months in oak than the other single-vineyard Barolos, and in 2006 the wine seems especially..
