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.

    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.

  4. Produttori del Barbaresco Rio Sordo Riserva Barbaresco

    2016 / 750 ml. | Item#53784

    RP9696 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 17th Jun 2021
    The 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Rio Sordo takes it up a notch if you consider the tasting of each one of these single-vineyard wines tasted in order. With the Rio Sordo, you really start to feel the textural richness and fruit weight that can be achieved with Nebbiolo in a great vintage. This vintage is compact and tightly woven together, suggesting a forecast for an extra long drinking window. The Alutto and Marengo families farm the fruit used in this blend. This wine will live long, and I love that touch of candied licorice that appears on the close (especially when you come back to the open bottle 24 hours later). Production is 11,355 bottles.
    VN9494 pts. - Vinous - Oct 2020
    The 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Rio Sordo is a serious, somber wine. Black cherry, plum, lavender, spice and menthol show off the darker side of Nebbiolo to great effect. In most vintages, Rio Sordo is an easygoing wine, but not in 2016. Readers will find a potent, brooding yet mid-weight Barbaresco that screams with character. What a way to start this tasting!

    Langhe Nebbiolo

    VN8989 pts. - Vinous - Mar 2020
    The 2018 Langhe Nebbiolo Starda is fresh, floral and very pretty. A reduction of time in oak seems to really help the purity of the fruit come through. Sweet red cherry, rose petal, mint and blood orange add character, but it is the wine’s balance that stands out most.

    RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 23rd Jul 2020
    The Trediberri 2019 Langhe Nebbiolo is a pleasurable and approachable wine that offers plenty of varietal purity. You absolutely taste the Nebbiolo grape with its classic aromas of forest berry, white licorice and dusty earth. The wine offers everything you look for in an entry-level red: informality, elegance and personality. The wine shows some structure, so I suggest a pairing with foods heavy in melted mozzarella or other creamy cheese.

    VN93+93+ pts. - Vinous - Feb 2020
    The 2015 Barbaresco Riserva Montefico is one of the most intriguing wines in this range. My impression is that the 2015 still has quite a bit to say, but this is Montefico, where the wines are slow to reveal themselves. White pepper, dried herbs, dried red cherry and mint add a super-appealing upper register. This is such a compelling Barbaresco.

  9. Oddero Barolo Villero

    2016 / 750 ml. | Item#53100

    SP9696 pts. - Wine Spectator - Mar 31, 2021
    Intense flavors of black currant and black cherry are shaded by iron, tar and tobacco in this toned yet powerful red. This is balanced, though needs time to absorb the dense, chalky tannins. The aftertaste extends the fruit element, along with mineral and tobacco accents. Best from 2023 through 2045. 660 cases made.
    RP95+95+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 23rd Jul 2020
    The Oddero family suggests tasting their single-vineyard Baroli in this order: Villero, Rocche di Castiglione, Brunate and Bussia. Starting off with the 2016 Barolo Villero, you get an open-knit but very precise expression in which the Nebbiolo grape is able to show its delicate nuances of wild cherry, rose hip, pressed violet and cola. The wine is silky and graceful. This Villero hits all the magic spots in the classic 2016 vintage. It should be exciting to chart its progression over time.
    JS9595 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Tuesday, August 4, 2020
    Aromas and flavors of strawberries, cherries and walnuts are well-integrated into a medium body with round, fine tannins and a delicious finish. It really has strength with finesse. Goes on and on. Better after 2023.
    VN9494 pts. - Vinous - Feb 2020
    Black cherry, cloves, melted road tar, licorice and leather all run through Oddero’s 2016 Barolo Villero. Deep on the palate with huge swaths of tannin, the Villero is a decidedly big, virile wine that is going to need time to fully come together. I imagine it will always be a powerhouse, however. The Villero is not especially elegant; the bombastic style clearly favors power over finesse — at least, it does today. Even so, there is plenty of Nebbiolo character and classic, old-school austerity.
    WE9494 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 9/1/2020
    Red-berry, blue-flower and menthol aromas mingle with tobacco notes on this full-bodied red. It’s youthfully austere, featuring red cherry, pomegranate, dried herb and star anise set against assertive, close-grained tannins that clench the firm finish. Give the tannins time to unwind and to let it fully develop. Drink 2026–2046.

  10. 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.

    VN9494 pts. - Vinous - Oct 2017
    The 2013 Barolo Vigna S. Caterina opens with a captivating mélange of orange zest, Christmas cake, kirsch and rose petal notes. Medium in body, with a super-classic sense of structure and drive, the 2013 is another winner from Guido Porro. I would prefer to give it a few years to allow the tannins to soften.

  12. 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.

  13. Vietti Barolo Castiglione

    2017 / 750 ml. | Item#45539

    JS9494 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, July 5, 2021
    There’s such purity of fruit to this with both dried and ripe strawberries and citrus rind. It’s full-bodied and structured with layers of ripe tannins that are fine and polished. Tight at the end. Give this two or three years to open and soften. Try in 2024.
    RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 17th Jun 2021
    This is one of the most versatile wines to emerge from Italy in recent years. A bread and butter winner for Vietti, the 2017 Barolo Castiglione is sharply contoured and bright, with an excellent quality of fruit that can be described as crisp, tonic and rich. That extra concentration comes in part from the hot vintage; however, the greater Castiglione growing area delivers consistent quality and persistence above all else.
    JD9393 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 5/27/2021
    Castiglione is from a collection of vineyards across Barolo, from vines that are 10 to 45 years old. Each of the parcels are fermented and aged separately prior to the final blending and are aged for approximately 30 months in oak casks and barriques. The 2017 Barolo Castiglione has pure aromas of fennel, fresh cherry, and cinnamon. Balanced and energetic on the palate, there is ripe cranberry, blood orange, and dried roses, with fine tannins. Vibrant and approachable out of the gate, this is a wonderful entry from the Vietti estate. Drink 2021–2034.
    VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Feb 2021
    The 2017 Barolo Castiglione is a wild, exotic wine. Super-ripe red cherry, kirsch, cinnamon, tobacco, new leather and rose petal all flesh out in this ample, voluptuous Barolo from Vietti. The 2017 is a wine of significant heft hidden behind a wall of tannin. Give it a few years to soften or open it well in advance. Time brings out striking translucence as well as finesse.

  15. 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.
