We were able to get some more of these out of Italy from the same cellar as previously. A stellar Barolo this will be the last bottles from this cellar and could be the last bottles available in the world.
We had the pleasure to taste a bottle from our recent Italian shipment, and we are happy to report it’s a gorgeous aged Barolo that delivers quality way above its price point. The bottles came from a cellar in Alba Italy and are in great shape with most of the fills at the base neck. The bottles are on their original corks, so a Durand wine opener or Ah-So is recommended when opening. The aromatics were classic Nebbiolo with rose petals, red cherry, currant, blood orange, minerals, and underbrush with a touch of brown sugar, which seems to be a typical trait of aged Barolo. The palate was very fresh and energetic for a 40+-year-old wine with some tannins still that melted away after being open for an hour. The fruit was pure, with the red fruits dominating, coupled with earth, a savory note, wet stones, and a touch of dried orange peel. A lovely wine that should hold another 5+ years and an excellent choice for a birthday bottle. Killer Barolo and highly recommended!
