***WINE FUTURE ARRIVING LATE 2022/EARLY 2023***
93-point, $40-$50/bottle Barolo for just $20 bucks and change?
Only at de Negoce!
I tasted this wine at VinItaly last Spring and immediately put my foot on the last remaining 195 cases. Man, do I wish I had more of this...
I am working super-lean here and, thanks to the strong dollar, am able to offset the unprecedented shipping costs and offer this wine to you for just $20+/bottle!
This is direct from the cellar with a 93-point score from James Suckling and a 91-point score from Decanter Magazine. We've agreed to affix our label and not mention the producer (this wine is all over the internet at $40-$50 plus shipping) so I am unable to re-produce the reviews here. However, the descriptors "exceptional", "delicious", "perfumed", "flavorful" and "chewy" all appear in the reviews.
Barolo fans, trust me on this one....this is classic Barolo in an exceptional vintage.
Medium-deep garnet and, as expected, I had a definite preference for a more chimneyed Burgundy glass versus a traditional Bordeaux. Right out of the bottle, the archetypal perfume of tar, roses and cherry is accented by rosemary, and umami leather and mushroom notes in a wonderfully complex bouquet that has evolved nicely and is now fully delineated. The red cherry note becomes more pronounced and spicy as the bouquet opens up further and reveals its numerous layers. Just beautiful. Smooth as silk on the attack with sappy fruit and earth in equal measure resolving in a potent array of chewy but exceptionally-well integrated tannins...fleshy, perfectly ripe, perfectly balanced and complex as hell, this is screaming deal for a wine that delivers tremendous complexity now and will age another 20+ years in your cellar. Perfetto!
