Bruno Rocca Barbaresco 2014 (1x75cl)

Ruby red with garnet highlights.  Intense aromas of cherries, wild black cherries and plums, with notes of rose petals, sweet wood and red pepper and hints of cocoa and spices.  A fragrant and well-balanced wine of great structure.

£40.15

Conterno Fantino Barolo Docg Sori Ginestra 2013 (1x 75cl)

A complex wine with classic aromas of violets with lots of figs and rich notes of leather. This is a complex wine of medium weight and with a very fine finish.

£74.25

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

A powerful, concentrated, complex and commanding nose. The palate is full and structured but surprisingly well rounded with black fruit, liquorice and mocha flavours, hints of rose petal and a defiant finish.

£64.14

Conterno Fantino Monprà Nebbiolo/Barbera Langhe Rosso Doc 2014 (1x 75cl)

Its deep colour is a reminder of the limited yields of the estate, while the richness of the well defined and elegant aromas tell of a perfect microclimate. All the density and extreme warmth on the palate have been perfectly assimilated by the oak and the finish is almost glossy and endless.
£29.55

E Pira Barolo Cannubi 2012 (1x 75cl)

The intense and brilliant colour perfectly showcases a very successful example of Nebbiolo. On the nose it develops richness; the initially fruity and spicy aromas envelop notes of sour cherry and raspberry, while hints of cocoa and vanilla make the bouquet even more intriguing.

£53.90

E Pira Barolo Cannubi 2013 (1x 75cl)

Since 1990, this jewel of Barolo has been run by the energetic and multi-talented Chiara Boschis, with the explicit goal of adding an aromatically elegant edge to the legendary power of these great wines. She has added vineyards in Monforte to the original estate, but the heart of E. Pira remains as it was in the days of the late Luigi Pira – just 2.5 hectares of vines in Barolo’s prized enclaves of Cannubi, Cannubi San Lorenzo, and Via Nuova. These are now managed organically, with painstaking selection and a strict eye for detail at harvest time. The winemaking uses modern techniques to maximise expression and approachability, resulting in wines that combine longevity with a benign drinkability for those who cannot wait to open them.

The intense and brilliant colour perfectly showcases a very successful example of Nebbiolo. On the nose it develops richness; the initially fruity and spicy aromas envelop notes of sour cherry and raspberry, while hints of cocoa and vanilla make the bouquet even more intriguing.

Suggestions of food matches for this wine include medallions of venison with port and cranberries; lamb chops with minted potatoes and courgette or grilled sirloin steak with anise basil butter.

Fontanafredda Barbaresco Docg Coste Rubin 2013 (1x 75cl)

Barbaresco is a wine which demands attention and respect: for its prestigious history, which is the result of hard work, but above all on account of the splendid sensations it offers in the glass. It has a brilliant garnet-red colour, while the bouquet is complex, with ethereal, spicy overtones on well-balanced wood, intense vanilla, cooked fruit and cinnamon. Its deep, velvety and well-balanced flavour lingers on the palate, confirming the long ageing process which combines lavish nature with great technical skill.
£29.13

Fontanafredda Barolo Docg 2013 (1x 75cl)

Classic dark 'tar' and perfumed 'roses' on the nose, light in colour but with great power, concentration and well balanced ripe tannins. This is a wine to match with rich foods and game dishes.
£25.41

Fontanafredda Barolo DOCG, Vigna La Rosa 2011 (1x 75cl)

The Vigna La Rosa Barolo is harmonious, well-rounded and elegant in taste; its very fine and delicate bouquet is reminiscent of faded roses and, with the ageing process, tends to acquire a pronounced earthy style but with a velvety sort of taste.

£53.35

G.D. Vajra Barbera Dalba Superiore 2013 (1x 75cl)

Ruby red colour with an intense perfume of plums and dark chocolate.  On the palate it has great concentration and intensity, especially on the mid-palate, with smoky, damson fruit and lovely balance between supple tannins and youthful acidity. 

£29.44

Vajra's own tasting note and technical note on this vintage:

GD Vajra BdV Barolo 2012 - Vajra fiche technique

Deep ruby with a touch of garnet on the rim.  This is classic Vajra, with lovely perfumes of dried rose petals, orange peel and violets.  On the palate, there is plenty of fine grained, ripe, tannin in the characteristic Nebbiolo style, and lots of elegant, dark cherry fruit with savoury notes adding more depth.  Long and perfumed on the finish.

Gaja Barbaresco Sori Tilden 1973 (1 x 75cl)

Angelo Gaja’s wines are among the most distinctive in Italy, and as a businessman and winemaker, family patriarch Angelo Gaja has always been ahead of trends. A fourth-generation wine producer based in Piedmont, Gaja began advocating modern methods to improve the quality of Italian wines more than three decades ago, a time when most Italian producers were determined to simply make as much wine as possible, regardless of its quality. Like Robert Mondavi in Napa Valley, Gaja wanted his wines to be in the same league as the best wines of France. And after his careful attention to quality beginning in the 1970s, his single vineyard Barbarescos earned international attention. By dropping appellations from his labels, he was also able to create blends, which are essentially Barbarescos or Barolos with very small amounts of Barbera added. Gaja’s most famous wines are his single vineyard Barbarescos. The winery has 250 acres in vineyards.

Massolino Barolo `Parussi` 2012 (1 x 75cl)

Awarded 90 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their December 2016 edition review of the Barolo 2012 vintage  (see blue link below).

 

Massolino Barolo Parussi 2012 - Dec 2016 Decanter review

 

This 23 hectare estate has has been in the Massolini 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.

  

Fruit for this Barolo was sourced from the 1.3 hectare Parussi vineyard in Castiglione Falletto, situated at an altitude of 300 metres above sea level. Purchased in 2007, this is Massolino's first vineyard outside of Serralunga d'Alba. The excellent south-easterly/south-westerly exposure of the vineyard, situated on the crest of the hill, guarantees the production of excellent quality grapes.  The average age of the vines is 40 years old.  

 

The wine was matured in large oak casks for 30 months followed by a year in bottle before release.  It is rich and deep garnet in colour. Balsamic aromas on the nose, with hints of earth and red fruits. A vigorous, powerful and deep wine, with young tannins.
