San Giuliano Fiore di Marcorino Barbera d'Alba 2016 750ml
San Giuliano Fiore di Marcorino Barbera d'Alba 2016 750ml
In Stock
Price: $26.99
Special Price: $22.99

The ’16 Fiore di Marcorino Barbera d'Alba wraps its succulent cherries and berries around a core of savory earth, saline minerals, and balsamic herbs; peppery spices and subtle wildflower petals round out the entrancing nose. Medium-bodied and brightly acidic, this Barbera glides with a silky feel into its lingering, chocolatey, mineral-laden finish. San Giuliano, run by Giulio Pastura and wife Mariella, is a collection of vineyards ranging across about seventeen acres in the Piemonte zones of Roero, Asti, Neive and Barbaresco. This wine derives from vines ranging from fifteen to sixty years old grown in a southern-facing parcel of limestone marl. This wine ferments for 7 to 10 days in stainless steel and ages in barrels for ten to twelve months before bottling. more info

Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “Twenty years in the business and I can say I simply forgot about the wines of Carlo Giacosa. I knew of them in the early days, but was quick to disregard, thinking how can anyone live up to the name Giacosa? Well, Carlo Giacosa does it with value and tradition with these two prized selections – Narin and Montefico, and they are not to be missed. The wines capture the classic 2016 vintage brilliantly. While the rest of the IWM team slightly favored the cru Montefico expression, as it had more a little more depth and structure, showcasing a more savory side, I loved the more feminine Barbaresco Narin for its approachability on the palate and in the pocket. I mean this is an all-star cuvée consisting of fruit from the prized crus of Asili, Montefico, and Ovello. It delivers what a more traditional cuvée should, and that is more balance and harmony in its youth than the sibling cru expression. This is a rich and chewy Barbaresco and you can expect to find nuances of wild berries, dried flowers, orange rind, licorice, cinnamon, herbs, and baked earth. It is a Barbaresco that will appeal to the fans of both Nebbiolo and Sangiovese and it is deceivingly approachable today. Unfortunately, just 400 cases are produced with a handful arriving in the US. It is simply great value for a Barbaresco with pedigree you will not need to wait forever on.” more info

If you appreciate Barbaresco and Barolo, then the symbolic and patriarchic name of Bruno Giacosa is not new to you. However, the producer we are talking about today is the smaller, more artisanal Carlo Giacosa. Aside from iconic last name, they do share three important things in common, and that is (1) prized grand cru like vineyard holdings in Barbaresco (Montefico, Asili, Ovello and Cole), (2) Dante Scaglione – the esteemed consulting enologist that assisted Bruno Giacosa in making some of his most legendary Barolo and Barbaresco, and (3) a traditional expression of the noble Nebbiolo. What may surprise you even further is that this is not a new estate, there is a long history here. Carlo’s father, Donato, was among the few growers that founded the Produttori del Barbaresco in 1958 under the guidance of the priest of Barbaresco. Carlo himself grew up alongside Angelo Gaja as Donato performed a lot of vineyard work for the GAJA family. Then, in the mid-sixties, Donato and the family went out on their own bottling their own wines and have remained under the radar in the US. Until now that is, with Dante Scaglione on board over the past few years, this is a historic rising star to watch.

Carlo Giacosa is small, farming just five hectares, yielding a mere 3,000 cases a year of traditionally driven Barbaresco. They practice organic, producing wines from long macerations and aging in large casks. More importantly, they count some of Barbaresco’s most famous crus as their own. There is the structured single vineyard Barbaresco Vigna Montefico, which is sourced from the eponymous cru.

2016 Poderi Colla Barbaresco Roncaglie
Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “Like the Cigliuti, this is a little and serious Barbaresco that would make Sergio proud. It is another one of those small family run wineries in Piemonte that somehow remains under the radar, despite being guided by one of the regions founding fathers - which is fine by us. The traditionally-spirited Poderi Colla Roncaglie is an expression that will outlive many Barolo from this historic vintage in the making for Piedmont. The wine simply screams freshness and purity of fruit and is one of those wines that pulls you in by the nose hairs with the signature nuances of dried rose petals, tar and red fruit. These flavors are joined on the palate with cherries, citrus, spice, cedar, herbs, and minerals. This Barbaresco is classically built and rustic, expect to find tannic grip that wraps the teeth and packs a punch on the finish. The wine needs a little time to reveal itself and demands some food. In fact, the best results for this wine came after being open for 24 hours. This is for those that like classic Nebbiolo delivered with exceptional value. Kudos to Tina and Beppe Colla for this gem.” 8/2020

Here is one of those tiny, family run wineries in Barbaresco that someone remains under the radar, which if fine by us. While many enthusiasts and critics gravitate to the flagship Barbaresco Serraboella from older vines, IWM remains fixated on the more traditionally-spirited Barbaresco Vie Erte. The wine simply screams freshness and purity of fruit and is one of those wines that pulls you in by the nose hairs with the signature nuances of dried rose petals, mountain flowers, licorice, and red fruit. These flavors are joined on the palate with cherries, spice, cola, tar, herbs, and mineral. This Barbaresco is classically built and rustic, expect to find some tannic grips and punch on the finish.

2016 Poderi Colla Barolo Bussia Dardi le Rose
Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “This wine picks up where the more delicate Barbaresco Roncaglie left off. If Barbaresco is the “Queen of Wine,” then Barolo is simply the “King of Wine” with these side-by-side expressions we tasted. The same Poderi Colla thumbprint is here, but the Barolo Bussia packs Monforte muscle with more concentration and depth. And like the Barbaresco, it begins with a seductive nose that is well-worth the price of admission alone, as this captures Barolo’s signature tar and roses, along with sweet red fruit. On the palate, there is succulent red fruit nuances of dark cherry, candied berries, licorice, a touch of citrus, dried flowers, tea, eucalyptus, smoke, and minerality. But make no mistake about it, this is classic Barolo that is aged in large botti as well as speaking to its place of origin. The tannins are aggressive and wrap the palate and teeth, with the wine finishing dry. On day two, this wine truly shows its depth and elegance, gaining weight in the glass with striking red fruit flavors... the best is certainly yet to come. For IWM, and myself, this is easily one of the best values in traditionally-spirited, single vineyard Barolo from the 2016 vintage. A MUST BUY from this classic vintage.” 11/2020

Luigi Giordano Barbaresco Asili DOCG 2015 750ml
Luigi Giordano Barbaresco Asili DOCG 2015 750ml
In Stock
Price: $69.99

2015 saw an exceptional growing year in Barbaresco, and Luigi Giordano’s ’15 Barbaresco Asili is an exceptional wine. Pressed rose petals, warm earth, crushed herbs, peppery spices, and touches of leather and black tea frame the juicy, pure red and blue fruits in this spellbinding Barbaresco Asili. Savory minerality joins the wine’s sweet fruits on the palate, while sturdy tannins and brisk acidity provide terrific structure for aging. Cellar for a year or two and then enjoy for decades. Deriving from the estate’s southwestern-facing, clay-rich vineyard in the famed Asili subzone, grapes ferment for about two weeks in temperature-controlled stainless steel, and the wine ages for 18 to 24 months in botti before resting in bottle for six months prior to release. more info
