Bruno Rocca Barbaresco 2016 (1x75cl)

The Rocca family originates from Barbaresco. Bruno Rocca took charge of the family business when his father died in 1978, and decided that all the wine produced by the estate would from then on be sold in bottle. The family now has 15 hectares of vineyards. Stylistically, Bruno is a consummate modernist, making wines with great intensity of fruit while retaining the structure and elegance of the Langhe at its best.

The Nebbiolo grapes for this wine come from younger vines, grown in Bruno Rocca's vineyards in Neive, Cru San Cristoforo, Marcorino and Fausoni. The soil originates from the Tertiary Period or the Cenozoic Era of nearly 70 million years ago and is rich in limestone and micronutrients ideal for growing Nebbiolo. The Neive vineyard is particularly sandy and tufaceous, creating full-bodied wines with firm tannins.

The grapes were hand-harvested and selected in the vineyard. A second selection took place on the sorting table. Fermentation was carried out in stainless steel tanks and lasted 20-25 days. The wine was aged in French oak barriques for 18 months, and then spent eight months in bottle before release.

100% Nebbiolo.

Intense garnet in colour, this wine has fruity aromas of blackberries, wild black cherries and plums with overtones of subtle rose, violet with hints of spice. Warm and elegant, the long-lasting flavours finish with a hint of cocoa.

Claudio Alario Sorano Barolo 2015 (1x75cl)

** NOW IN STOCK! **

Awarded a Platinum & Best in Show medal and 97 points at the 2019 Decanter World Wine Awards (click link for details).

For other 2019 DWWA winners, click here.

The famous and spectacular scenery of the Langhe of Piedmont is the backdrop to the small family business of (now) Claudio Alario, which was founded in the early 1900s. They are located in Diano d’Alba, a small rural village, situated on soft, green hills to the east of the main Barolo zone. For three generations, the business had solely dedicated itself to the care and cultivation of vines and the sale of grapes, and it is only thanks to Claudio that they have - relatively recently - arrived at their own winemaking and bottling of their own wines. In 1988, Claudio, fresh out of oenology college with his degree, set to at producing his own Langhe wines. He/they started by producing only Dolcetto, progressively advancing with Barbera to Nebbiolo, arriving in 1995 at their first Barolo. Their vineyards, situated in the municipalities of Diano d’Alba, Serralunga d’Alba and Verduno, vary in age between 20 and 50 years old; all enjoy particularly privileged exposures.

This Barolo hails from the Serralunga municipality, and is drawn from the Sorano cru which lies at the very north of the crus of that zone (with an exposure to the SW).

Although quite brief, see the link below - a fiche technique/technical note from the winemaker himself - for more details of the winemaking and elevage.

Claudio Alario Sorano Barolo 2015 - fiche technique

Only 4,000 bottles of the 2015 were made.

Tasting note: as the DWWA19 panel said,"This authoritative and complex Barolo is a great harbinger for everything the 2015 vintage holds, as well as being an outstanding representative of its DOCG. It's relatively deep in colour, with lifted, seductive, pristine aromas which suggest roses, threshed grain and straw matting as well as refined plum, redcurrant and pomegranate fruits. It's still deep-textured and detaining, with choice gastronomic tannins, yet the beautifully stewarded fruits are already offering complexity and nuance. Further bottle age will only add to the allusive layers. An effortless classic, into which much effort has doubtless gone".

Conterno Fantino Barbera Dalba Doc Vignota 2017 (1x 75cl)

The Conterno Fantino winery was founded in 1982 by Claudio Conterno and Guido Fantino. Today they cultivate 27 hectares of vines and produce about 140,000 bottles per year, split between the 4 varietals of Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto and Chardonnay. Over the years, the two founders have been joined by Alda, Fabio and Elisa Fantino in various roles. Environmental sustainability, preserving biodiversity, respect of the land and its heritage are the guiding principles in the vineyards, which are organically cultivated and certified by CCPB. The Conterno Fantino winery styles its wines with the primary goal of reflecting their own identity: from painstaking manual selection of fruit which is harvested by hand using small crates; from preserving the aromas of the vineyard with spontaneous fermentation from indigenous yeasts (no commercial yeast is used here); from the careful use of wood for the ageing of the wines to the minimal use of sulfites, right up to the bottle ageing. "Our wine is the offspring of the land in which the wines are cultivated, and once in the winery must be brought up, step by step, as if it were a member of the family. Our wine is one of us." 

This wine is 100% Barbera.

A wine ruby red in appearance with cherry reflections. Elegantly scented with pleasant notes of cherry and sour cherry. Very rich extractions on the palate, persistent but simultaneously soft.  Excellent served with roasted red and white meats, and strong cheeses such as: penne with stir-fried beef and red bell pepper, provencal lamb with Mediterranean vegetables, pistachio-crusted pork with plum sauce and fried leeks or spiced venison steaks with red-cabbage confit and red-wine sauce.

Conterno Fantino Barolo Vigna del Gris 2010 (1x 75cl)

Founded in 1982, Conterno Fantino testifies to the talent and vision of viticulturist Claudio Conterno (formerly of Giacomo Conterno) and his partner, oenologist Guido Fantino. These great wines start in exceptional vineyard sites at Monforte and are lovingly nurtured in the state-of-the-art winery at Bricco Bastia. This location is scenically set, dominating the most ancient section of Monforte and overlooked by the majestic sweep of the Alps.

Vigna del Gris, from Ginestra at 300m, is on a sandier portion of vineyard that faces south-east and favours delicacy and elegance.

Short maceration on skins, vinified in rotary fermenters and aged two years in French oak barrels from coopers Taransaud, Boutes and Quintessence, followed by 12 months in the bottle.

See blue link below for the fiche technique/technical note from Conterno Fantino.

Conterno Fantino Barolo Vigna del Gris - fiche technique

The 2010 Barolo Vigna del Gris is beautiful, layered and expressive. Sweet tobacco, mint, licorice, crushed flowers and plums meld together in a supple, gracious wine for the year. Sweet rose petals and mint add an attractive upper register of trademark aromatics and perfume as the wine opens up in the glass. The 2010 remains dense and compact, but it is impossible to miss that the tannins here are more refined than has typically been the case with the Gris in the past, which is probably the result of vines getting older. The 2010 needs time to unwind, but it is quite pretty and full of potential. Conterno Fantino gave the 2010 a year in 100% new French oak, followed by a year in a combination of equal parts barrique and cask".   

94 points, Antonio Galloni, Jan 2014, Vinous Media

 

"The 2010 Barolo Vigna del Gris comes from 30-year-old vines and southeast exposures (not far from where the legendary Monfortino wine is made). A vein of sandy soil in the vineyard makes for special conditions that favor delicate aromas of blue flower, forest fruit, ash and brimstone. In essence, this is a sharply focused and linear expression that leaves a direct and long-lasting impact in the mouth. Drink: 2017-2028".

Conterno Fantino Dolcetto d'Alba Bricco Bastia 2018 (1x 75cl)

It all started way back in 1886, when Paolo Conterno founded the Casa della Ginestra, dedicated to the production of Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto wines. An indefatigable worker with a mind of great intuition, he devoted the most favourable parts of the Ginestra hillside to the growing of the grapes, subdividing them by type, exposure and terrain. Furthermore, he had the foresight to predict the existence of a market of connoisseurs of superior quality products, selling his own wine in wooden kegs and produced by himself in his own cellar. Paolo was succeeded by his son Carlo and his wife Giuseppina. The company was subsequently run by Paolo and Caterina Conterno and today the company is managed by their son Giorgio.

This wine is from 4.5ha of land close to the Conterno Fantino winery. At just under 600m asl the vineyard is high for the Barolo region and average slope is consequently steep, at 25%. The composition of the soil is predominantly sandy (57%) which is ideal for the production of perfumed, floral Dolcetto with an attractive acid structure. The average age of the vines is 15 years, and over recent seasons quality has been improved through top grafting with small-berried, loose-bunched clones. Yields are low for Dolcetto, at slightly over 50 hl/ha.

The grapes are selected and picked by hand at the beginning of September. Alcoholic fermentation and maceration take place on the skins in stainless steel horizontal fermenters over 4 - 5 days. The wine is then aged for 8 months in stainless steel tanks before being bottled.

This wine is made from (certified) organically grown grapes and is 100% Dolcetto.

Mouthwatering acid structure and agreeably soft in texture. Displays lovely cherry, berry and floral flavours, with an earthy, barnyard note. Ready to drink.

Fontanafredda Barolo DOCG 2015 (1x75cl)

The Fontanafredda estate was bought in 1858 by Vittorio Emanuele II as a gift to his mistress Rosa Vercellana, also known as "La bela Rosin". Later, it was handed down to their children, Maria Vittoria and Emanuele Alberto, Count of Mirafiori and Fontanafredda. After several changes of ownership Fontanafredda is once again in the hands of Piedmont natives. In 2017 Fontanafredda was named “European Winery of the Year” by the prestigious American magazine Wine Enthusiast.

Relying on the most advanced models for sustainable agriculture (organic, integrated and biodynamic), they have adopted the agricultural disciplinary guidelines of Vino Libero which defines the vineyard-cultivation techniques they use whilst striving to both reduce the environmental impact and safeguard human health.

The fermentation is done in a traditional way and is carried out for an average of 8-10 days in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature (30-31°C) with a floating cap and frequent pumping over of the must. The must is then left on the skins for several days to optimize the extraction of the polyphenolic substances and to help the malolactic fermentation get underway. This wine ages for at least two years in large casks made of oak (from Slavonia and mid-France), followed by no less then twelve months in the bottle.

The results of lengthy ageing, above-all on account of their natural qualities, these robust, well-bodied wines are packed with structure and are well capable of withstanding the test of time. Barolo has an attractive ruby-red colour with garnet highlights which become orange with the passing of time. Its bouquet is clean, full and intense, with the wine's typical traces of withered flowers, dry leaves and underbrush. Ideal with rich red meats as well as medium and mature cheeses, this is also a perfect after-dinner wine.

Fontanafredda Marne Brune Nebbiolo D Alba DOC 2016 (1x75cl)

The Fontanafredda estate was bought by King Vittorio Emanuele II as a gift to his mistress Rosa Vercellana, also known as "La bela Rosin". Later, it was handed down to their children, Maria Vittoria and Emanuele Alberto, Count of Mirafiori and Fontanafredda. 

Only grapes of “controlled” origin are used at Fontanafredda. The estate vineyards, managed directly by their own technicians, cover a total of about 100 hectares (247 acres), cultivated mainly with Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto, and Moscato: the typical varieties of the Langhe. This production only satisfies 20% of the business’s yearly needs. Therefore, each year, during harvest, over four hundred local vine growers deliver their own grapes to Fontanafredda, respecting generations-old fiduciary relationships. These grapes are also grown according to the firm guidelines of Vino Libero which guarantee zero chemical residues. Thanks to these additional grapes, the company annually crushes about 6 million kilograms of grapes.

Once picked the grapes used in "Marne Brune" undergo fermentation with maceration for 10-12 days at a temperature of 28° C. It is then aged in barriques (oak from Allier) for 12 months followed by a period of 6-7 months in the bottle.

Nebbiolo "Marne Brune" stands out for its fragrance, which is already evident in its ruby-red colour of varying intensity depending on the vintage, and is confirmed on the nose by bouquets of flowers and wild fruit, and on the palate by its strong personality and dry taste.

G.D. Vajra Langhe Nebbiolo 2017 (1x75cl)

The 2016 vintage was awarded 92 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their May 2019 review of affordable Barolo alternatives (see blue link below).

GD Vajra Langhe Nebbiolo 2016 - May 2019 Decanter review

Aldo Vajra's wines are characterised by pristine flavours and clearly defined perfumes. These characters are attributable to the position of his vineyards at about 400 metres above sea level in the village of Vergne in the commune of Barolo. G.D. Vajra was established in 1972 and named after Aldo's father, Giuseppe Domenico Vajra. Aldo has been gradually increasing the area under vine to 60 hectares, of which 10 are Nebbiolo for Barolo, located in such strategic spots as Bricco delle Viole, Fossati, La Volta and Coste di Vergne. A traditionalist, Aldo adheres to old-style winemaking methods, though blends these with new techniques, such as temperature-controlled fermentation, to produce such superbly elegant wines.

These grapes come from young Nebbiolo vines in Vajra's own vineyards in the communes of Barolo and Novello. The vines are four to seven years old and will produce Barolo DOCG in several vintages time. This Nebbiolo is also enriched by grapes from the wonderful Roccabella vineyard in the commune of Sinio, planted on steep south-facing terraces.

The 2017 vintage saw a dry winter and freezing temperatures in April. The rest of spring and summer were very dry. Harvest started one week earlier than in 2016. Despite dry weather, which led to a 20% reduction in yield, the grapes were very healthy and rich in flavours and aromas.

Fermentation lasted 15-20 days, at temperatures no higher than 29-30ºC with indigenous yeast strains and traditional daily punch downs. Malolactic fermentation followed and the wine was then aged for six months largely in stainless steel tanks, with a small portion in neutral wood, before bottling.

This wine is made using 100% Nebbiolo.

The wine is bright ruby red in colour with intense notes of violet and rose, accompanied by the freshness of ripe red berry fruits on the nose. This is an elegant Nebbiolo with herbaceous notes and perfumes of roses and red berries complemented by silky tannins and delicate acidity.

GD Vajra Barolo Bricco Delle Viole 2014 (1x75cl)

Awarded 94 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their Italy 2019 supplement as part of an article on Barolo (see blue link below).

GD Vajra, Bricco delle Viole 2014 - February 2019 Decanter review

Aldo Vaira's wines are characterised by pristine flavours and clearly defined perfumes. These characters are attributable to the position of his vineyards at about 400 metres above sea level in the village of Vergne in the commune of Barolo. GD Vajra was established in 1972 and named after Aldo's father, Giuseppe Domenico. Aldo has been gradually increasing the area under vine to 60 hectares, of which 10 are Nebbiolo for Barolo, located in such strategic spots as Bricco delle Viole, Fossati, La Volta and Coste di Vergne. A traditionalist, Aldo adheres to old-style winemaking methods, though blends these with new techniques, such as temperature controlled fermentation, to produce such superbly elegant wines.

The 'Bricco delle Viole' vineyard is located at altitudes of 380-470 metres above sea level in the commune of Barolo and covers 4.79 hectares. One part of the vineyard is planted with vines which are now over 60 years old and yield less than 30 hectolitres per hectare. Its high altitude and long ripening season gives the wine an aromatic complexity and richness that is lacking in lower vineyards.

In Piemonte, 2014 was a surprising year. It was cool and wet, so work in the vineyard was the key. Hail hit some vineyards and those who cropped too high or didn't work hard enough in the vineyard will have produced pretty poor wines. Those who did - including the team at GD Vajra - have made good wines with good colour and perfume and good levels of acidity.

Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at temperatures up to 31°C and lasted four weeks, with regular pumping over. The wine was then matured for 42-48 months in Slavonian oak barrels.

Brilliant ruby red, this Barolo has aromas of cherries, dark berries, violets and dried roses with nuances of citrus fruits and mint. On the palate, there are silky tannins. The wine is well balanced with a long delicately spiced finish.

Giacomo Ascheri Dolcetto Dalba DOC, Vigna Nirane 2018 (1x 75cl)

The Ascheri winery is located in the historic Piedmontese town of Bra. Founded in the early 19th century, the winery today is run by Matteo Ascheri, 45 years old, the dynamo who leads the new generation of Piedmontese winemakers. Matteo has introduced many innovations and produces all the major Piedmontese white and red wines, as well as several outstanding Cru or single vineyard bottlings. His vineyard practices are sustainable, without the use of chemical treatments and synthetic fertilizer. The goal is to produce the best quality grapes in order to have a non- interventionist practice in the winery.

Matteo Ascheri speaks about his philosophy of wine production: “Wine is becoming more uniform throughout the world, as producers use the same grapes, the same technologies, the same barrels for aging and especially the same consultants. My objective is to make a distinct wine that expresses its vineyard site, the grape varieties used and in particular, my own ideas about how it should be made… I want to make natural wines, with concentration derived from the vineyard that possess qualities of balance, elegance and finesse.

The vineyard for the Vigna Nirane is situated in the western part of the Barolo area as the estate is located partly in the municipality of La Morra and partly in the municipality of Verduno. It is on the south-west and south-east facing slopes at an altitude of 350 m above sea level. Usual harvest time in the vineyard is between 15th and 30th September.

Fermentation takes place in stainless steel for about 6 days at 25°C. This preserves the delicate primary aromas of the grapes, giving the wine a fresh character.

100% Dolcetto.

This wine is ruby red in colour with violet nuances. It has a generous, persistent bouquet, with small red berries and cherry fruit nose. Round and persistent, the palate is well balanced. This is a  harmonious, pleasant wine with great tipicity.

Massolino Barbera d'Alba 2018 (1x75cl)

Awarded 90 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter in their December 2019 edition article, Top 40 Piedmont reds beyond Nebbiolo (see blue link below).

Massolino Barbera D'Alba 2018 - December 2019 Decanter review

This 23-hectare estate has been in the Massolino family since 1896. Since 1994 the style of the wines has undergone a subtle transformation. Winemaker Franco Massolino has done a wonderful job of marrying change with a respect for tradition, something that sets him apart from most of the younger producers in Barolo today. This is in part dictated by the nature of the vineyards that the Massolino family owns in the commune of Serralunga d'Alba - the source of some of the greatest, most structured, robust and long-lived Barolo wines.

Grapes for this wine are sourced from several vineyards in Serralunga d'Alba. The vines are Guyot-trained and are approximately 10 to 45 years old. The plant density ranges from 5,000 to 6,000 vines per hectare depending on the vineyard. Yields are approximately 6.5 tonnes per hectare. Soils are mixed but predominantly limestone.

The 2018 vintage began with a long, rainy winter, which helped replenish water resources depleted in 2017. The winter season extended until the beginning of March, with temperatures much lower than in recent years. This led to a gradual, slow resumption of the vine’s vegetative stages. Development was gradual during summer, with temperatures rising considerably from mid-July onwards. This allowed the grapes to mature fully, and resulted in intense grapes with well-balanced sugar and acidity.

The wine fermented for 10-12 days in stainless steel at temperatures between 31-33°C. Malolactic fermentation followed, and the wine was left in stainless steel for a short period of maturation. The wine is usually bottled and released for sale during the spring after the harvest.

This wine is deep purple in colour. On the nose, it is elegant with intense red fruit aromas - typical of Barbera. On the palate, it is refreshing and well-balanced with supple tannins and a long, fragrant finish.

Massolino Langhe Nebbiolo 2017 (1x75cl)

This 23-hectare estate has been in the Massolino family since 1896. Since 1994 the style of the wines has undergone a subtle transformation. Winemaker Franco Massolino has done a wonderful job of marrying change with a respect for tradition, something that sets him apart from most of the younger producers in Barolo today. This is in part dictated by the nature of the vineyards that the Massolino family owns in the commune of Serralunga d'Alba - the source of some of the greatest, most structured, robust and long-lived Barolo wines.

The grapes for this wine came from several vineyards in Serralunga d'Alba, situated at 340 metres above sea level and covering 2.1 hectares. The vines are Guyot-trained and are approximately 10-12 years old, planted at a density of 5,500 vines per hectare. Soils are mixed but predominantly limestone.

After 8-10 days of temperature-controlled fermentation (31-34ºC) in stainless-steel tanks, the wine was aged in traditional botti or large casks for more than a year. Massolino's aim was to make an approachable style of Nebbiolo which can be enjoyed without overwhelming the drinker. 

100% Nebbiolo.

In the glass, this Nebbiolo has a ruby colour with a hint of purple. Notes of rose, raspberry and redcurrant are supported by cherry liqueur and subtle spices. On the palate, this wine shows gentle and elegant tannins, well balanced by bright acidity.

ABV = 14.5%.

Michele Chiarlo, La Court, Barbera d'Asti Superiore Nizza 2015 (1x 75cl)

Awarded 93 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter in their December 2019 edition article, Top 40 Piedmont reds beyond Nebbiolo (see blue link below).

Michele Chiarlo, La Court, Barbera D'Asti Superiore Nizza 2015 - December 2019 Decanter review

Michele Chiarlo is one of Piedmont's truly great winemakers. The family owns 60 hectares of vineyard in three of the classic growing areas - Langhe, Monferrato and Gavi and have access to a further 50 hectares through long-term relationships with their growers. Michele has insisted on total quality since his first vintage in 1956, an ethos which his sons Stefano and Alberto adopt today. The Chiarlo style is highly elegant, they make complex wines that can age for decades but above all reflect their provenance - some of the finest vineyard sites in Piedmont.

A not-excessively-cold winter, but heavy rain and snow created an abundant water reserve. A mild spring led into a warm summer with a complete absence of rain from mid-June until 10th August, which contributed to the grapes' perfect ripeness. September saw excellent diurnal temperature differences leading to the development of vibrant aromas and excellent phenological ripening of the red grapes. 2015 is being hailed as one of the greatest vintages of the last two decades.

The grapes come from the La Court vineyard. A prestigious site originating from the 1800s, the single parcel covers three hectares. The vineyard has a southeast to south western exposures at 240 metres above sea-level and produces very low yields. The vines are Guyot trained. The soils are designated as ‘Artisane Sands’ which consist of calcareous clay marl of sedimentary marine origin with high lime and sand content. They produce ample, intense and elegant wines with good structure and longevity. Manually harvested.

100% Barbera.

The grapes were fermented on the skins in 55 hectolitre oak barrels for 15 days at controlled temperatures of between 27° to 30°C. A gentle shower system of submerging the cap was used to extract flavour, colour and structure. Malolactic fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks. The wine was refined for 30 months. Oak maturation lasted for 12 months: 50% in 55 hectolitre French oak barrels and 50% in Allier oak barriques, followed by a further 18 months in bottle prior to release.

A richly textured wine with nuances of coffee and chocolate together with red fruit flavours, elegant and beautifully balanced. An appealing and structured wine, which is complex and elegant with layers of black cherry, cocoa and coffee. Harmoniously balanced, it has a velvety palate and a long, silky finish. Its richness and elegance places it amongst the finest wines in Chiarlo's portfolio.

Vietti Barbaresco Masseria 2014 (1x75cl)

The Vietti family has been producing wine for four generations in Castiglione Falletto, at the heart of the Barolo area. Carlo Vietti founded the winery in the 1800s and his son Mario and the next generations carried on his legacy, focusing on improving the production.

Then, in 1952, Alfredo Currado (Luciana Vietti’s husband) was one of the first to select and vinify grapes from single vineyards (such as Brunate, Rocche and Villero). This was a radical concept at the time, but today virtually every vintner making Barolo and Barbaresco wines offers “single vineyard” or “cru-designated” wines.

Alfredo is also called the “father of Arneis” as in 1967 he invested a lot of time to rediscover and understand this nearly-lost variety. Today Arneis is the most famous white wine from Roero area, north of Barolo. 

Today, the winery is in the hands of Luca Currado Vietti and is considered to be one of the very best Piedmont producers. Their wines are highly sought-after, with beautifully designed labels as well as wonderful wine.
