The Barolo wine region is arguably the most famous DOCG in Italy.
It is located in Piedmont, in the northwestern part of the country, and
is perched between the Alps and the Mediterranean Sea in the Langhe
Hills. Often referred to as the “King of Wines,” Barolo wines are produced
from Nebbiolo grapes grown in this designated region. There, the grapes
benefit from limestone, clay and sandy soils, and are influenced by cool,
mountain air and warm sea breezes. Barolo is often thought to be Italy’s
answer to Burgundy in its ability to express the intricacies of terroir.
Lot 26 is our longest running Reserve wine, now in its 12th vintage! The wine is produced by a small, family-owned winery that continues to impress us with masterfully crafted Barolo year after year. Before release, the wine sees two years of oak aging and an additional year in bottle.
Layered aromas of cherries, rose petals, cinnamon and hints of leather present an intoxicating perfume, backed by an elegant texture, freshness and robust yet supple tannins. Drink soon, or age for many years to come. This wine will provide immediate gratification or extra reward for those who are patient.

I am definitely a novice when it comes to wine , but I know what I like and that is definitely this wine! Amazing wine from start to finish. First couple of sips were a bit sharp and then the wine mellows out nicely and plays on the tongue. This is a wine that you will want to purchase several bottles, but save some for me!
Discovered this wine when we lived in NJ. Now that we live in CO we order directly from
