Shop for Barolo and other Nebbiolo Wines

Nebbiolo gets it name from the Italian word nebbia (“fog”), and Nebbiolo grapes make some of the finest wines of Italy, including Barolo wines. The success of Nebbiolo is extremely site-specific. Within the communes of Barbaresco and Barolo, grapes produce wines of amazing complexity and mind-boggling longevity. The best sites, or crus, are similar to those of Burgundy, and are referred to as sori (vineyards with good southern exposure) and bric or bricco (highest part of the vineyard). Nebbiolo wines are standard fare in any serious collector’s cellar, and will age upwards of thirty years.

While attempts to emulate its greatness have been tried in Argentina, Australia, California and other wine regions, it is only in Italy that this red grape fully shows its formidable character. Sometimes described as an “iron fist in a velvet glove,” Nebbiolo is as elegant as any Pinot Noir from Burgundy, and as structured as a Cabernet from Bordeaux. The aromas of a mature Barolo can be sublime with rose petals, black truffles and leather. The fruit is concentrated and zesty, with fresh red berries and black cherries bursting through its medium-full body.

  1. Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco

    2017 / 750 ml. | Item#20938

    JD9595 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 5/27/2021
    The 2017 Barbaresco, sourced from 100 hectares and 54 growers, was aged for 24 months in large oak casks. It offers layers of aromatics woven together with tar, forested earth, dried cherry, and sweet tobacco. The palate is ripe and pure, with raspberry leather, tea leaf, and blood orange. It is mouth-filling, with fruit that is long and persistent, fine tannins, and a lifted finish. Finessed and elegant, the 2017 is drinking beautifully now and will continue to drink well over the next 15 years. 2021–2036.

    The 2017 Barbaresco shows just how appealing this vintage can be. In 2017, the warm, dry growing season gave the Barbaresco an extra kick of richness that fills out its frame and adds so much immediacy. Sweet red berry fruit, cinnamon, rose petal and mint are open in the glass, but it is the wine’s seductive radiance that wins the day. Pora, Ovello, Montestefano, Muncagota and Rio Sordo are the main vineyards used for the straight Barbaresco. The 2017 is such an inviting and expressive wine. Don’t miss it!

  5. Castello di Verduno Barbaresco

    2016 / 750 ml. | Item#47178

    VN93+93+ pts. - Vinous - Feb 2019
    Castello di Verduno’s 2016 Barbaresco is bright, precise and wonderfully sculpted, all in the mid-weight style that is such a signature of the Castello di Verduno wines. Readers will have to be patient, as the 2016 needs at least a few years in bottle to unwind, and time beyond that to really enter its prime drinking window. Today, the 2016 is primary, floral and full of vitality. The straight Barbaresco is built on a core of Faset, with pieces from Rabajà and Rabajà-Bas that don’t make it into the vineyard designate bottlings. This is a stellar showing.

  6. La Spinetta Barolo Campè

    2016 / 750 ml. | Item#51796

    VN9797 pts. - Vinous - Feb 2020
    The 2016 Barolo Campè is superb. Dark, potent and powerful, the 2016 possesses tremendous intensity to match its dark, virile personality. More than anything else, in 2016 the Campè offers a captivating interplay of fruit and structure. The 2016 is not a shy wine; rather it is rich and hedonistic to the core, while maintaining a striking sense of translucence. Black cherry, chocolate, espresso, licorice and clove all build into the huge finish. In a word: Superb. In 2016 Giorgio Rivetti and his team made a Barolo with a sense of classicism I have never seen before to this degree in a La Spinetta wine.
    RP9696 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 23rd Jul 2020
    The Campè vineyard is above Garretti in Grinzane Cavour. La Spinetta’s 2016 Barolo Campè Vürsù draws its fruit from the upper part of the vineyard where the topsoils are shallow and the vines are oldest, aged 70+ years. Fruit comes from a three-hectare site with beautiful southern exposures. This beautiful wine opens to a velvety and dark appearance with dark garnet highlights. To the nose, it produces dark primary fruit with dried blackberry and plum, but you also get savory notes of spice, tar and dried licorice root. The wine shows a firm backbone, but the tannins are nicely tucked into the greater fiber and power of the mouthfeel. Production is 9,000 bottles.
    JS9696 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Thursday, November 7, 2019
    As always, this shows loads of dried flowers and dried peaches and persimmons; it’s a ripe and unique wine. A cascade of tannins follows, enveloping the mouth in chewy sensations from top to bottom, flanked in dried-berry flavors. Full-bodied and dense, but agile and inviting. Drink from 2026.

  7. Sordo Barolo

    2016 / 750 ml. | Item#54612

    JS9292 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Tuesday, August 4, 2020
    A very fine-tannined red with creamy, polished tannins that run the length of the wine. It’s medium-bodied with pretty length and finesse. Drink or hold.
    RP8989 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 23rd Jul 2020
    The Sordo 2016 Barolo is a well-priced and readily available wine. It is elegantly downplayed and subtle, offering typical Nebbiolo aromas of wild cherry, rose, licorice, cola and aniseed. It spreads over the palate with a fine and delicate texture, and you don’t feel its power until those youthful tannins kick in. Those tannins are a bit too aggressive now, so give it time. Winemaking involves extended maceration with submerged cap and concludes with 24 months in traditional Slavonian oak casks. An ample 150,000 bottles were made.

  8. Piancornello Brunello di Montalcino

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#53001

    RP9595 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 15th Oct 2020
    Showing a robust and beautifully saturated appearance, the Piancornello 2015 Brunello di Montalcino offers that classic Brunello bouquet that introduces earthy elements of leather and potting soil with dark plummy fruit. Those sweet and savory sides are expertly folded into each other, and the rich, concentrated fruit of the vintage helps to smooth out those flavors, adding overall intensity along the way. This is a terrific expression that faithfully reflects the beauty of Brunello. It is a lovely wine.
    JS9595 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Sunday, September 20, 2020
    There’s a cascade of dried florals here, ranging from rose petals to lilacs; the glazed strawberries and cherries are equally intense. So much power and ripeness to the full-bodied palate, but there’s a savory, stony flavor and texture that permeates the whole package. Long on the finish. Drink from 2024.
    VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2020
    The nose is intense with spiced cherry, giving way to sweet herbal and floral tones, as hints of cedar and leather add further depth. On the palate, soft textures are contrasted by ripe red fruits, with vibrant acids adding lift, as sweet inner herbal and floral tones develop. The finish is medium in length and spicy, resonating on ripe fruit but also remaining fresh and energetic. This is already very easy to like and should be quite enjoyable over the medium term.

    WE9696 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 9/1/2020
    Iris, woodland-berry and pine-forest aromas shape the nose. On the focused, vibrant palate, mint and star anise notes accent a core juicy Marasca cherry. Taut polished tannins and bright acidity provide balance and a firm lithe structure. Drink 2024–2031.

    VN94+94+ pts. - Vinous - Oct 2020
    The 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Muncagota continues this tasting of frankly awe-inspiring wines. Rich, deep and super-expressive, the 2016 hits all the right notes. Black cherry, plum, spice, leather, licorice emerge, but only with great reluctance. The Muncagota is another wine in this range that clearly needs time.

  15. Sottimano Barbaresco Pajoré

    2016 / 750 ml. | Item#49654

    WE9696 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 10/1/2019
    Elegant and structured, this full-bodied wine has aromas of ripe black-skinned berry, leather, menthol and baking spice. The focused palate shows great freshness and finesse, offering cranberry, red cherry, vanilla and licorice set against firm, fine-grained tannins and vibrant acidity before a tight orange zest finish. Drink 2024–2036.
    VN95+95+ pts. - Vinous - Oct 2018
    The 2016 Barbaresco Pajorè is a super-classic, explosive wine endowed with tremendous depth and character. Hauntingly beautiful aromatics laced with spice, menthol and blood orange make a strong opening statement. The Pajorè has traditionally been a big wine here. Although there is plenty of breadth and texture, the 2016 remains light on its feet. Lavender, mint, licorice and blue/purplish berry fruit are wonderfully alive in the glass. The 2016 is very young and yet also so easy to appreciate in the early going. That is often a sign of a truly great wine. Don’t miss it.
    RP9494 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 28th Jun 2019
    Sottimano has five vineyard sites, and the Pajorè site near Treiso has the poorest soils of them all. These wines are more elegant and ready as as result. The 2016 Barbaresco Pajoré sees 40-plus days of maceration and one month of submerged cap in oak (the same goes for all of their Barbarescos), and this can be done only when the skins are perfectly healthy. Remember that this is organic farming we’re talking about. The skins are still crunchy. Here you’ll find a spicy, elegant and sweet Nebbiolo that is fine and yet really covers the mouth well. I picked up some exotic flower notes that are hard to pinpoint, and once again, the nice saline mouthfeel is impressive. Some 6,000 bottles were made.
