Endowed with tons of grace and sheer depth - 2008 Vietti Barolo Brunate Magnum

When this small parcel of 2008 Vietti Brunate mags crossed my desk, I jumped on it. 2008 is a special vintage for the wine, and mags are very rare. There's only one other listing for mags in the U.S. 

A Barolo of nearly indescribable class:
2011 Giacomo Conterno Barolo Francia

Conterno's 2011 Barolo Francia represents an absolute high point of the vintage. Roberto Conterno is one of the world's great winemakers. And what he turned out in 2011 drives this point home. 

A Break Out Vintage:
2010 Roagna Barbaresco Pajé
