Unearthed Treasures from the “King of Wines.” Nine Decades of Barolo and Barbaresco (1937-2010). Benchmark Vintages and Sleeper Finds – the Value Begins with a 50-Year-Old Barolo Under $50!
Discover the magic of aged Barolo from the greatest vintages and greatest producers…and more! For this new treasure chest of selections, we are talking about Barolo and Barbaresco with up to eighty-three years of maturity, going back as far as 1937 with Giacomo Conterno Barolo Riserva. It is a tremendous opportunity to experience the evolution spectrum, for to our thinking, there simply is no wine as magical as an aged Barolo! We are talking about intoxicating notes of red fruits, spices, saddle leather, licorice, and citrus. On the palate, these nuances are joined by a spectrum of notes that include the hallmarks of dried red cherries, tea, a liberal dip into the spice rack, tobacco, and touches of truffle, but what amazes us most is the almost sweet, succulent red fruit that remains after four decades in today’s textbook example of Barolo from the benchmark vintage of 1978, our personal favorite year from the Langhe Hills. Can Barolo (and Barbaresco) with age take on first-growth Bordeaux or grand cru Burgundy — we emphatically say, “Yes!”
What makes today’s offer so special is access to Barolo with age, not an easy find. We put together an awesome retrospective from the Langhe Hills that includes the benchmark classic years of 1958 (96AG), 1961 (97AG), 1964 (96AG), 1971 (98AG), 1974 (95AG), and 1978 (97AG) – just to name a few! Through our relationships in Italy, we are able to present an exceptional collection of these wines from iconic traditionalists such as Cappellano, Giuseppe Rinaldi, Bartolo Mascarello, and Bruno Giacosa, as well as the often-overlooked and classic Barolo of Giuseppe Mascarello. We need to re-emphasize, that for Barolo, years like the 1964 and 1978 are in many ways like 1961 in Bordeaux or 1994 in Rioja, and finding these treasures from the Langhe Hills with provenance, whether it be retail or auction, in the US or abroad, can be more difficult than sniffing out the region’s prized trifola d’Alba, or white truffle.
