Under $22 De Forville New Releases! Blockbuster Vintage Giacosa! And Sassicaia Mags!
August 4, 2015 
A Note from Sergio

Yesterday, I was happy to offer a pair of very affordable Sicilian wines from Valle dell'Acate. Today, I'm delighted to follow up that offer with two new releases from Piemonte's De Forville estate, and these two wines seriously over-deliver at their under $22 price points.


De Forville's Nebbiolo wines have gotten a lot of attention in the press, both mainstream and industry, but I've never been one to choose wines based on their notice. I picked this '13 Nebbiolo d'Alba San Rocco because it's a delicious bottle that evokes Piemonte in its juicy fruit, ethereal rose petals, lick of tar, and burly tannins. Likewise, I chose the '13 Barbera d'Asti Cascina Buc because it complicates Barbera's usual straightforward cherries and berries with smoke, game and incense. Both of these wines taste like they were made with love.


We've carried De Forville's wines over the years, and they're consistently great bargains; these bottles pack a wallop for their price points. But as much as it brings me joy to find you value wines, my heart--and likely yours--rests in collector wines, and you can't find bottles more collectable than the two Bruno Giacosa Barolo Collina Rionda Riserva vintages offered today. These 1978 and 1990 bottles are like a window into another world. Finally, you can't go wrong with Sassicaia, especially not in magnum, and this '08 will only grow more beautiful.
