"This is an especially ethereal Barolo."
2018 Roagna Barolo La Pira

The 2018 Pira has a radiance and a punchy dynamic energy that's thrilling. The spectrum of flavors is jaw-dropping: layered red fruits, game, earth, tar, herbs, spice, etc. Everything is delivered with exacting precision.

Go-To Piedmont Value:
2018 Roagna Langhe Rosso

Langhe Rosso is a humble designation (like Bourgogne Rouge), but Roagna's has no trouble going head-to-head with Barolos and Barbarescos.

"If you can find it, don't miss it!"
2019 Giacomo Conterno Nebbiolo d'Alba Arione

Conterno's wines exist in their own realm. Roberto’s exacting standards focus on perfecting every little detail. The sum is an almost logic-defying profundity.

Full-Throttle Nobility
2019 Brovia Barolo Rocche di Castiglione

Out of Brovia's consistently stunning line-up of single Crus, Rocche is always the stand out.

Back Up The Truck - Piedmont Edition:
2018 Produttori di Carema Carema Riserva

Carema is about an hour's drive from Barolo and amounts to its alpine cousin. It's one of the most riveting and most versatile wines around.

Brovia, Canonica, Cappellano, Giacosa, Mascarello, Rinaldi, Roagna & More

The Sweet Spot:
2017 Roagna Barolo La Pira

Roagna's 2017 Pira is jaw-droppingly good. It boasts an incredible spectrum of layered red fruits, game, earth, tar, herbs, and spice. All of this is backed up by a beautiful finesse and verve. 

Perfectionism Paying Off:
2018 Giacamo Conterno Barolo Cerretta

In 2018, Cerretta rivals Francia in a vintage where no wine was earmarked for Monfortino. This is no simple feat. 

The Alpine Distance Runner
2018 Ferrando Carema Etichetta Nera

For decades, Ferrando's Carema has been the benchmark for the beauty and profundity that Nebbiolo achieves in the northern extremes. Carema is alpine Nebbiolo of breathtaking grace.

Utterly Captivating: Back-Vintage Conterno
2006 Conterno Barolo Cascina Francia

The Barolo Francia comes from one of Serralunga’s top sites. The commune is renowned for the density, texture, and heft of its wines.

"The 2013 Barbaresco Pajè will leave readers weak at the knees"
2013 Roagna Barbaresco Pajè

When they were released, we felt that the 2013 Roagnas represented the high-water mark for this well-established estate.

Cult Mountain Nebbiolo
2017 Ferrando Carema Etichetta Bianca

In short, Carema is an alpine Nebbiolo of breathtaking grace.

"The 2013 simply has it all" -Antonio Galloni
2013 Bartolo Mascarello Barolo

Don't Miss Under-The-Radar Barolo Traditionalist
2016 Cascina Fontana Barolo del Comune di Castiglione Falletto

Mascarello Rarity
2017 Bartolo Mascarello Langhe Nebbiolo

Bartolo Mascarello's Langhe Nebbiolo is almost impossible to find in quantity.

It's also a wine that we love and work hard to track down every year. Still, we typically end up wth only a couple cases. 

"A wine of total finesse" - Antonio Galloni
2016 Poderi Colla Barolo Bussia Dardi Le Rose

Barolo at an Accessible Price Point

2016 Serafino Rivella Barbaresco Montestefano: Revisited

Small production, great vintage and a strong following.

Piedmont Holy Ground:
2013 Oddero Barolo Vigna Rionda

Rionda is a well exposed, limestone-rich vineyard that has the potential to deliver some of the greatest Barolos around. 

"What a wine!"
2016 Brovia Barolo Brea - Ca' Mia

In recent vintages Brovia established themselves as one of the great traditional estates of Piedmont. In the 2016, they leaped into an even greater level of quality. The wines are more refined, purer, and more detailed.

"Like stepping back into Piedmont's past"
2016 Serafino Rivella Barbaresco Montestefano

The wines of Serafino Rivella possess such honesty and precision that it's hard not to be wowed by them. There's something mysterious and special about the wine. They have plenty of finesse and feel devoid of artifice. 

"Brovia's 2016s are all finesse" Part Two
2016 Brovia Barolo Garblèt Sué

The 2016 vintage represents a high point for this great traditionalist. Just like the 2016 normale, the 2016 Garblèt Sué is one of the best examples of the wine that we've tasted. 

"Brovia's 2016s are all finesse"
2016 Brovia Barolo

Within the top ranks of Barolo, it's difficult to compete with Brovia in terms of value.

No place in their formidable lineup dramatizes this as much as their Barolo normale. In top vintages, this bottling over-delivers in an astonishing way. 

Barbaresco Crown-Jewel:
2016 Castello di Verduno Barbaresco Rabajà

Rabajà is one of Barbaresco's crown jewels.

It is a dazzling wine. The site produces wines of impressive power, but that's only part of the story. Rabajà is above all about completeness and elegance.

Piedmont Elite, Rosé Edition:
2019 Nervi-Conterno Il Rosato

Roberto Conterno is simply a force of nature and one of the most talented people working in wine today.

As the summer heat rages here, I'm happy to offer Conterno's incredibly refreshing and expertly crafted rosé.
