2018 G.D. Vajra, Barolo, Bricco delle Viole 6x75cl

RP95
"The 2018 Barolo Bricco delle Viole is not super intense, but it is balanced in its own way. The wine is subdued but complete with softly yielding tannins to support an elegantly streamlined... mouthfeel. Bricco delle Viole is a high and cool growing site in Barolo at 400 to 480 meters in elevation with characteristic Sant'Agata marl soils with fossils. The wine represents a selection of fruit from over seven hectares. With fermentation in steel tank and aging in large Slavonian oak, you are invited to a silky, lifted and beautifully delicate experience with an accessible personality." 95 points, Monica Larner, www.robertparker.com

2018 G.D. Vajra, Barolo, Albe 6x75cl

JR17
"Lovely Nebbiolo aromas of rose, violet, red berry and botanical herb shape the fragrant nose. Smooth and savory, the elegant palate features juicy red cherry, crushed raspberry and cake spice... alongside polished tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced. It's already drinking beautifully but also promises years of pleasure. Enjoy through 2030." 94 pts., Kerin O'Keefe, 9/1/2022

2017 G.D. Vajra, Barolo, Bricco delle Viole 6x75cl

JR17.5WE96
"Transparent pillar-box red. Powerful nose of dried something. Cherries? Rose petals? Perhaps both. Super-fresh, despite the alcohol, with such great presence in the mouth. It's not nearly ready but... it's clearly destined for great things. Sweet and chewy with a strong mineral undertow. Jewel-bright fruit. Real lift but more powerful than ethereal. Even slightly pungent with a whiff of cordite. Really refreshing health juice. Great stuff." 17.5 pts., Jancis Robinson, 10/3/2021

2019 Paitin, Barbaresco, Serraboella 6x75cl

JR17.5WE95
"Sandalwood and culinary spice aromas mingle with rose leather and camphor. Showing structure and a racy finesse, the vibrant palate is young and loaded with nervous energy at this stage but already... delicious, offering juicy Morello cherry, raspberry and star anise framed in taut, refined tannins and bright acidity. Drink 2029–2044." 95 pts., Kerin O'Keefe, winemag.com

2018 Giovanni Almondo, Roero, Bric Valdiana 6x75cl

The Almondo family have been in Piedmont for the past 600 years, yet their foray into winemaking only dates to 1980 when Domenico came up with an ambitious plan to create top quality wine from their... family vineyard. The result is superb, and the Roero Bric is a Nebbiolo-based red cuvée that will age beautifully and represents a stunning value alternative to the more famous names across the Tanaro river, Barbaresco or Barolo. The 2021 exhibits tell-tale floral and sweet yet crunchy red cherry aromatics, with hints of peppery spice. Lovely mouthfill and power, this is very pleasant now and will improve for the next 5 to 7 years. (Mr.Wheeler tasting note)

2017 Le Difese, Tenuta San Guido, Toscana 6x75cl

VM90
"The 2017 Le Difese is plump, juicy and inviting, with lovely textural richness and volume. Sweet red cherry, spice, leather, tobacco and menthol ore amped up by the natural richness and radiance of... the year. This is on especially supple, lush Difese. I would prefer to drink it over the next handful of years. " 90 pts., Antonio Galloni, robertparker.com

2016 Enzo Boglietti, Barolo, Case Nere 6x75cl

JR17
"Trademark smoky nose. Nice structure here and a bit more sweet fruit to support the powerful tannins. Nice mouth-watering acidity lifts the wine and this should age and really come into itself nicely." 17 pts., Alistair Cooper, jancisrobinson.com

2016 Enzo Boglietti, Barolo, Brunate 6x75cl

JR17
"Light, bright ruby colour with an orange hue. Beautifully lifted bouquet of red and dark fruit, fresh rose and some spice. A classy version of Brunate that combines austerity, vibrant fruit... characters and fine tannins. Persistent, fulfilling and exquisitely varietal. The silty clay soil with little organic matter is responsible for the powerful yet austere structure, the large clay patches give the complexity of flavours and aromas." Enzo Boglietti Tasting Note

2019 Bruno Giacosa, Barolo, Falletto Vigna Le Rocche 6x75cl

A shy nose, first revealing distinctive wild herbs and crushed rock notes. The fruit expands in the glass enhancing the complexity of this truly blessed site. Ample texture and with an expansive... palate, this offers a lingering and profound freshness that gives harmony and depth to this elegant, precise vintage. The 2017 is comparable to the legendary 2016, but it needs time to be enjoyed at its prime.

2019 Gaja, Barbaresco 6x75cl

"2019 Barbaresco has glaring vivid colors thanks to a good presence of anthocyanins. It immediately brings out notes of rose and wild strawberries followed by lighter notes of marzipan, wild fennel... and a hint of juniper. Tasting saline, the wine has good length and a perception of crisp red fruits balanced by bright acidity. Together with the freshness and a tense structure, they define the main characteristics of the 2019 vintage." (Winemaker's tasting note)

2019 Rizzi, Barbaresco 6x75cl

JR17.5
"Alba. Just mid ruby. Concentrated raspberry and strawberry with a peppery tingle and saline, minerally hints. Ripe raspberry fruit that really sticks to the elegant palate. Fresh acidity and a layer of cracking tannins on the finish. Long, precise and lithe." 17.5 pts., Walter Speller, jancisrobinson.com

2018 Elvio Cogno, Barolo, Cascina Nuova 6x75cl

JR17+RP93
"“The 2018 Barolo Cascina Nuova is fine-tuned with plenty of wild berry, cassis, grilled herb and crushed stone. The aromas are quite classic for Nebbiolo, but what stands out here is the... directness and freshness with which they are delivered. The tannins are tucked carefully inside the smooth, silky character of this elegant wine. 20,000 bottles were produced.” 93 pts., Monica Larner, robertparker.com

2018 Elvio Cogno, Barolo, Ravera 6x75cl

RP94
“The Elvio Cogno 2018 Barolo Ravera is becoming one of the most important wines in Novello, and it performs very nicely in this more challenging vintage. In fact, 2018 helps to cement Ravera's... steadfast reputation precisely because it performs so well despite spells of humidity and heat. The wine shows small-berry detailing with rust and crushed stone at the back. There is a point of bitterness that accompanies the tannins of this full-bodied wine. Production is 15,000 bottles.” 94 pts., Monica Larner, robertparker.com
