Derived from grapes grown in Castiglione Falletto, Monforte, Barolo and Novello, the Barolo Castiglione gets its name from the chestnut trees that dot the hillsides of Piemonte. After fermentation in stainless steel, the wine ages for two years in cask followed by eight months in bottle before release. The ’10 Vietti Barolo Castiglione stands up to the hype of the vintage with its silky, sinuous tannins, its ripe and juicy fruit, its lilting spice and earth, and its impeccable balance of all of its elements. Priced at under $70, this Barolo redefines value. It’s a stunning wine that will only grow more spectacular with time.

Poderi Aldo Conterno Barolo Bussia 2013 750ml
Price: $82.99

Radiant and succulent red and blue fruits, new saddle leather, cigar wrapper, violet petals, baking spices and loam waft from the glass of this spellbinding ’13 Barolo Bussia. This wine shows impeccable balance, unfurling on the palate with energy and focus to reveal a seamless structure and silky texture. While you’ll want to drink this wine right away, time in the cellar will make it more harmonious and refined. Once simply Aldo Conterno Barolo and now called Barolo Bussia, this entry-level Barolo from Aldo Conterno has garnered a reputation for being a generous, open, genial wine; it’s a perennial IWM client favorite. Deriving from 12 acres of plots in Bussia Soprano with vines aging between 35 and 40 years, the carefully selected grapes ferment for thirty days, and the wine ages for 27 months in cask, followed by twelve months in bottle before release.
Poderi Aldo Conterno Barolo Colonnello 2001
Poderi Aldo Conterno Barolo Colonnello 2001 750ml
Price: $104.76
Currently Unavailable

Conterno's Colonnello cru is the most consistently approachable of the estate's single-vineyard expressions, delivering a deeper color and greater intensity of fruit expression relative to the other crus (Romirasco and Cicala). That said, the sand that dominates Colonnello's soil composition provides for elegance and finesse.    Slightly younger than Cicala (35"“40 years old), the Colonnello cru is best, perhaps, for those collectors whose patience falls short of infinite, as it is the most reliably approachable of the single-vineyard expressions. This forward disposition is apparent in its deeper color and greater intensity of fruit expression, though all elements of its vinification regime—both aging periods and techniques—are the same as those of the Cicala's.  A fresh nose of dried flowers and fennel is followed by a juicy palate of ripe red plums, strawberries, and kirsch liqueur. Good structure, bright acidity, and velvety tannins make the Colonnello suave, elegant, and eminently drinkable at any age.
Paolo Scavino Barolo Bricco Ambrogio 2004 750ml
Paolo Scavino Barolo Bricco Ambrogio 2004 750ml
Price: $109.00

Juicy red and blue fruits dance with umami, cedar, peppery spices, rose petals, tar and tartufo bianco in this expressive, caressing ’04 Barolo Bricco Ambrogio. Fruit-driven and powerful upon release, more than a decade of age has mellowed this wine, deepening its mineral elements; gamy, savory notes complement this Barolo’s sweet inner perfume, while vibrant acidity keeps it nimble on the palate. Supple, fine-grained tannins cling to the cheeks as the wine builds to a lingering, complex crescendo. Deriving from a limestone-rich, south-southeast-facing parcel located in Roddi, Scavino’s Barolo Bricco Ambrogio ages in barrique, followed by one year in cask, resulting in a well-balanced and approachable wine.
Bartolo Mascarello Barolo 2007
Bartolo Mascarello Barolo 2007 750ml
Price: $129.99
Currently Unavailable

Bartolo Mascarello is perhaps most aptly summed up with his anthem, “No Barrique, No Berlusconi.” As much as it’s a political cry, it also epitomizes this producer’s fierce adherence to tradition. Since Bartolo’s death in 2005, the estate has been in the hands of his daughter, Maria-Teresa, who continues the old-school traditions of large botti, blending across vineyards, and making Barolo for the ages. A Bartolo Mascarello Barolo is simply classic: feminine in its youth yet growing more massy as it ages, perfumed with roses and violets, extraordinarily finessed and ethereal, and replete with that Barolo magical mix of frutti di bosco, tar, and terroir. The seductive ’07 offers a juiciness that’s unusual for Mascarello, but its linear structure, nuance and extended finish show the skilled, loving hands of its maker.
Sandrone Barolo Le Vigne 2012 750ml
Sandrone Barolo Le Vigne 2012 750ml
Price: $134.99

2012 gave Piemonte winemakers a warm year, and this wine bursts with sweet Nebbiolo fruit, layered on a foundation of spice, tar, cherry cordial and sun-warmed earth. Caressing and silky, this ’12 Barolo Le Vigne glides across the palate with effortless grace; while it almost begs to be enjoyed now, it has the structure to drink for a decade or longer. Luciano Sandrone crafts his Le Vigne as a traditional cuvee Barolo, choosing grapes from the vineyards of Ceretta (Monforte), Vignane (Barolo), Merli (Novello), Conterni (Barolo), and Villero (Castiglione Falletto). The grapes ferment in steel tanks, and the wine ages in 500-liter oak casks, one-quarter new. Sandrone crafts fewer than 2,000 cases of this spellbinding Barolo a year.

Price: $149.00

Brambly, brooding and round, the ’13 Barolo Le Vigne is also bewitching and elegant. Sweet red and blue fruits dance with tarry earth, rose and violet petals, balsamic herbs, and touches of underbrush and warm baking spices. This wine oozes across the palate with a silky, weightless feel, leaving refined tannins and a lovely inner perfume. As much as you’ll want to drink it right away, cellar this benchmark Barolo for a few years for great enjoyment.

Bruno Giacosa Barolo Falletto 2003
Bruno Giacosa Barolo Falletto di Serralunga 2003 750ml
Price: $157.00

For those new to Barolo, this constitutes a premier cru. In the manner of Soldera's magical Brunello, it ostensibly appears like a very light, thin wine. In actuality, it is a mammoth production that will show its incipient depth in the tight, muscular character of its early wonder years. Like Gaja, Giacosa is often typecast, regarded as a pure, unwavering traditionalist. While his wines certainly exemplify the classic style of Barolo in their leanness and restraint, he is not absolute in his approach, as he operates in a state-of-the-art winery and utilizes stainless steel.
