Cordero di Montezemolo

Cordero di Montezemolo Enrico VI
December 14, 2021

An Unbeatable Deal!
Cordero di Montezemolo was founded in 1340.  We’ll let that sink in for a second. That’s a long time, by any measure, and when you have one family, in the same place, farming the same land, generation after generation, they are bound to become really good at it.  That’s very true here.  The Montezemolo wines have always been really wonderful, classic examples of Piedmontese wines in their respective categories.  With reviews off the charts for the 2017, now’s the time to stock up, especially since our pricing beats the competition out of the park!

Arriving in Friday, December 17th:

Cordero di Montezemolo Enrico VI, Barolo DOCG 2017 750ML ($119.95) $89 pre-arrival special
Case-6 Cordero di Montezemolo Enrico VI, Barolo DOCG 2017 750ML ($579.95) $512 pre-arrival special (that’s only $85.33/bottle!)

Oddero Vertical

Oddero 

A Vertical of Oddero Riservas


“Brunate, which straddles the Barolo/La Morra border yields dark, powerful, tannic wines built for aging. Black fruit, tar, licorice, violets, dark spices and balsamic notes are some of the signatures of this great site. [Exceptional]” – Antonio Galloni, on the Brunate vineyard.

“Vigna Rionda yields the most perfumed, sensual and mystical of all Barolos. Rose petals, violets, sweet spices, nuanced fruit, silky tannins and often an element of weightlessness make Rionda the Musigny of Barolo. [Exceptional]” – Antonio Galloni, on the Vigna Rionda vineyard.

Oddero remains one of the best sources for traditional, uncompromising Barolo.  The estate itself is old even by Piemontese standards, dating back to the 1700’s, and they’ve been estate bottling since 1878—quite early by the standards of the region.

6-2-19

burlotto barolo nvG.B. Burlotto was considered among the absolute greatest winemakers in the world for the seventy plus years he was at the helm of the estate. After his passing in 1927, the winery and his hometown of Verduno slipped into obscurity. Now Fabio Alessandria, the great-great-grandson has taken over and Burlotto is among the best small producers in the Piedmont.

The Outstanding 2014 Produttori Crus

“this is one of the most consistently outstanding set of Riservas I can remember tasting here”–Antonio Galloni

produttori line up 2014Produttori del Barbaresco is revered for producing classically-styled Barbaresco and Riservas of uncompromising quality and transparency. It’s a miracle that these wines are still affordable and available, especially when compared to the skyrocketing prices of Barolo. You’d be hard-pressed to find such consistent quality and complexity out of such an extensive range of single-vineyard Nebbiolos anywhere else. We are pleased to present the 2014 Crus – a range already receiving rave reviews from Italian expert Antonio Galloni.
