Paolo Scavino Barolo 2016 750ml
The product of a balanced, ripe growing year that culminated in the second banner Barolo vintage in a row, this ’16 Barolo Cannubi matches is succulent, dense Nebbiolo fruit with elegant tannins, vibrant acidity, and savory notes like leather, spice cake, and menthol. This Barolo marries precision with seductive floral aromatics in a wine that is pure class, and enjoyable as it is upon release (with aeration), it’ll be even better decades down the road. Arguably the most historic of all of Barolo’s vineyards, Cannubi is the second cru bottled by Scavino. Planted in 1946, the Cannubi vineyard benefits from its southern exposure, gray silt-sand and marl soils and an altitude of 290 meters above sea level. Fermentation takes place in steel rotary vats with aging in barrique for ten months and an additional fourteen months in French casks and ten more months in bottle.
Prunotto Barolo Bussia 2014 750ml
While 2014 challenged the Langhe’s winemakers with chilly, wet weather, Prunotto’s ’14 Barolo Bussia is an ethereal, alluring wine that crackles with energy and floats to a lingering, aromatic finish. Crisp red fruits and supple blue berries mingle with exotic spices, hazelnuts, rose petals, underbrush and herbs in this open-knit, creamy Barolo. Fine-grained tannins and lively acidity work together to create a sense of texture and energy as the wine glides to its delicate, drink-me-now close. Deriving from the estate’s fossil-rich, clay-marl vineyard in Bussia in Monforte d’Alba, grapes ferment for about two weeks in temperature-controlled vats; the wine ages for at least two years in casks of various sizes, followed by at least a year in bottle before release.
Sandrone Barolo Le Vigne 2013 750ml
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. 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.
Sandrone Barolo Le Vigne 2014 750ml
2014 challenged Barolo makers, but you’d never know it from this effortless, graceful ’14 Barolo Le Vigne. Luscious red and blue fruits layer with warm loam, violet petals, mentholated herbs, cedar and a dusting of baking spices. Nicely textured and altogether lovely, this wine glides to a balanced, seamless finish marked by fine-grained tannins. Sandrone crafts its 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 separately in steel tanks for just longer than two weeks, and the wine ages in 500-liter oak casks, one-quarter new, for two years before blending and bottling. Sandrone crafts fewer than 2,000 cases of this spellbinding Barolo a year.
Paolo Scavino Barolo Bric del Fiasc 2004 750ml
Its not only one of Piemontes most important single vineyards, its one of 2004s standout performances and the most significant bottling in the Scavino portfolio. A subplot of the Fiasco cru, Bric del Fiasc characteristically carries the most formidable structure of Scavinos Barolos, an austere sensibility coupled with imposing power. This state of profound tension is ameliorated only through an extended period of cellaring, which typically transpires over 20 years. In a rather unusual move, the 04 privileges elegance over strength, creating a graceful, poised Bric del Fiasc. It achieves its power through subtle, compelling suggestiona demeanor that becomes the vintage.
Prunotto Barolo Bussia Vigna Colonnello Riserva 2012 750ml
2012 saw a ripe, tempestuous year in the Langhe, but it made for a fascinating, multi-layered Barolo Colonnello Riserva from Prunotto. This Barolo bursts from the glass with a mélange of intriguing notes--ripe red and blue fruits, blood orange, cypress needles, worn leather, dried rose petals, tarry earth, and cigar wrapper, to name but a few. Polished, chewy tannins meld seamlessly with the wine’s taut acidity, as copious dry extract finds its match in an ethereal perfume. The ‘12 Barolo Colonnello Riserva feels both restrained and a little exotic, and it holds its drinker in its tensions as it slides to its resonant finish. Deriving from the historic four-acre Colonnello vineyard (Prunotto, owned by the Antinori family, has a 2.5-acre plot), the grapes are partially destemmed, then ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel; the wine ages in cask for around three years, then in bottle for an additional 30 months before release.
Sandrone Barolo Le Vigne 2015 750ml
A lovely, lilting embodiment of its banner vintage, Sandrone’s ’15 Barolo Le Vigne leaps from the glass with a graceful mélange of sweet red and blue fruits, rose petals, black pepper, licorice, blood orange zest, and fresh-pressed herbs. Despite its welcoming aromatics, this wine is still tightly wound, uncoiling with air to reveal substantial, broad tannins and an elegant acidic spine. An extended, mineral-laden finish glides for minutes. While you’ll want to dive right in to this Le Vigne, a few years of rest in the cellar will do it a lot of good. Sandrone crafts its 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 separately in steel tanks for just longer than two weeks, and the wine ages in 500-liter oak casks, one-quarter new, for two years before blending and bottling. Sandrone crafts fewer than 2,000 cases of this spellbinding Barolo a year.
Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco 2014 750ml
While 2014 plagued Barolo with hail, the turbulent yet warm vintage faired much, much better in Barbaresco, and Giacosa’s ’14 Barbaresco shows a classic, muscular profile that borders on the austere. Silky yet taut, this wine frames its pure red fruits with pressed rose petals, warm chocolate, fresh earth, licorice, tobacco and tar. Firm, chewy tannins need some time to integrate, but give this wine a year or two of maturity to reveal its sweet fruit, conveyed on a vibrant, rich palate. Deriving from 15-year-old vines grown in a southwestern-facing plot with calcareous, sandy soils, grapes ferment for about three weeks in temperature-controlled stainless steel, and the wine ages for 18 months in botti, followed by eight months in bottle. Giacosa rarely produces its Barbaresco, whose grapes come mostly from the lower slopes of its Asili parcel blended with some grapes from Rabajà, and the fact that 2008 was its most recent appearance, makes this wine yet more special.
Sandrone Barolo Aleste 2015 750ml
Rich yet structured, open-knit yet age-worthy, and powerful yet finessed, Sandrone’s ’15 Barolo Aleste is a knockout. Layers and layers of crisp red, brambly blue, and sumptuous black fruits meld with cigar wrapper, umami, espresso, melted chocolate, baking spices and wildflowers. Creamy and vibrant, this wine shows its sturdy mineral core as it crosses the palate; chewy, muscular tannins find their complements in vivid acidity and sweet fruits that linger on the sustained, resonant finish. The grapes for this cru Barolo derive from a five-acre plot at the top of the Cannubi hill, and this powerful, full-bodied wine is a perennial IWM client favorite. The grapes ferment in steel tanks, and the wine ages in 500-liter oak casks, one-quarter new. Sandrone crafts fewer than 1,000 cases of this standout cru Barolo a year.
Giacomo Conterno Barolo Cascina Francia 2003 750ml
Cascina Francia represents classic Barolo, an expression that presents "good body, alcohol, and tannins, plus that certain something that gives longevity" elements that represent the pillars of a noble wine in the philosophy of Giacomo Conterno. The maturation period typically see four years of oak aging; good vintages yield only 1,500 cases. The '04 release showcases exquisite balance and offers Cascina Francia's trademark structure and complexity, along with ample fruit. Given this provision, the wine will benefit from cellar maturation.
