“Fragrant purple flower, dark-skinned berry, chopped mint and pipe tobacco are just some of the aromas you’ll find on this captivating red. The delicious palate combines structure, finesse and earthiness, delivering juicy Marasca cherry, black raspberry, licorice and truffle framed in taut, fine-grained tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it youthfully focused and well balanced.” Drink 2024-2036. 96 points, Kerin O’Keefe, Wine Enthusiast

La Morra. Tasted blind. Concentrated mid to deep ruby. Deep cherry fruit nose with a touch of Moroccan leather. Minerally, too. Concentrated, lush fruit palate of great depth and length and reined in by supple, fresh acidity and with an undertow of long, sandy tannins. Gorgeous. [21/07/2020]

The 2016 Barolo Cerequio is born in the vineyard cru that best represents the excellent winemaking efforts of the Michele Chiarlo team. The estate owns a beautiful boutique hotel and restaurant in the middle of the vineyard and fittingly uses this spot for most public functions. This is a terrific expression, showing the power and balance of the vintage with pretty accents of wild fruit, rose and dark earth that render volume and intensity to the wine’s overall performance.

We generally use specialised fine wine delivery couriers rather than standard couriers, giving a much higher level of care and accuracy in delivering fine wines safely to you.

Delivery charges are based on number of cases to be delivered and are standard for all UK addresses except highlands and islands. Please ask for a quotation for highlands and islands, transfers to another bonded warehouse and for international transfers.
