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.

  2. Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco

    2016 / 750 ml. | Item#20938

    RP9595 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 28th Jun 2019
    The 2016 Barbaresco is a tight and beautiful wine that will require more time to unwind and soften. This beautifully balanced vintage is characterized by a tight inner core of fruit that underlines the graceful aging capacity of these wines. The 2016 is shaping up to be one destined for long cellar aging. Now in its youth, the wine offers wild berry, rose and licorice aromas.
    WE9595 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 9/1/2019
    Enticing aromas of violet, woodland berry, loose vineyard soil, wild mint and a hint of spearmint shape the intensely fragrant nose. The tense, young palate is still nervous but already boasts finesse, showing wild raspberry, crunchy red cherry, white pepper and star anise. Firm, refined tannins and racy acidity give it a linear, almost austere elegance, while bright acidity keeps it focused and balanced. Drink 2026–2036.
    WS9595 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2019
    This is Produttori del Barbaresco’s flagship wine, produced with fruit selected from their 54 growers, who collectively farm some 250 acres of vines, and it is a stunner in the 2016 vintage. It’s ripe and precise, the vibrant red fruit lifted by fresh floral scents and subtle spice. The tannins envelop that fruit like a soft leather glove, as brisk acidity propels the flavors toward a vertical finish. There’s no better bargain in Barbaresco, and with 22,000 cases produced, this should be on every serious Italian wine list and in every nebbiolo lover’s cellar.
    VN9494 pts. - Vinous - Nov 2019
    The 2016 Barbaresco is a stunning wine with tremendous richness for this bottling. Ample, deep and powerful, the 2016 exudes pedigree and class from start to finish. I can’t remember a straight Barbaresco here with this much fruit density and unctuous richness, and yet there is more than enough tannin and overall structure to give the wine its classically leaning feel. A blast of sweet red cherry fruit, tobacco, menthol licorice and smoke hits the potent finish. What a wine!
    SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 15, 2019
    Cherry, tar and menthol flavors mark this rich, silky red. Even more expansive on the palate, building to a long, complex aftertaste. Beautifully balanced, this picks up a minerally accent on the finish. Best from 2022 through 2038. 25,000 cases made, 7,500 cases imported.

  4. 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.

  7. Castello di Neive Barbaresco

    2017 / 750 ml. | Item#49942

    WE9494 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 10/1/2020
    Ripe wild berry, violet and camphor aromas lead the way on this full-bodied, inviting red. On the savory palate, assertive, close-grained tannins accompany dried cherry, blood orange and licorice before closing on a hint of coffee bean. Drink 2022–2027.
    VN9191 pts. - Vinous - Oct 2020
    The 2017 Barbaresco is a terrific wine to drink now and over the next decade or so. Ample and creamy, the 2017 is so inviting. Sweet red cherry, crushed flowers, mint, cedar, rose petal and blood orange give the 2017 an exotic character that is so appealing. Another year or two in bottle will help the tannins soften. This is nicely done.

  8. Produttori del Barbaresco Montefico Riserva Barbaresco

    2016 / 750 ml. | Item#53814

    VN9898 pts. - Vinous - Oct 2020
    The 2016 Barbaresco Montefico is a jewel of a wine. Freshly cut flowers, minerals, crushed rocks, rose petal and lavender are all finely cut. As always, the Montefico is tense and chiseled in style. Its sense of transparency is simply beguiling. Sage, mint and sweet pipe tobacco are some of the nuances that linger. The Montefico is a Barbaresco that will thrill readers who enjoy taut reds. It blends the fruit richness of the Montestefano with the verve of Ovello.

    Lovely scents of perfumed berry, blue flower, underbrush and wild mint take center stage while the ethereal graceful palate offers crushed strawberry, sour cherry, star anise and a hint of white pepper alongside lithe tannins. Bright acidity lends balance and energy. Drink through 2024.

    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.

    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.

    Fontanabianca presents a rich and full-bodied expression of Nebbiolo here in this classic vintage. The 2016 Barbaresco is enhanced with black fruit, spice, leather and tar, all rolled into one harmonious wine. There is beautiful texture here, with balanced and silky intensity to the end. Some 20,000 bottles were made.

    WE9292 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 10/1/2016
    Aromas of blue flower, baking spice, black-skinned berry, leather and a whisper of well-integrated oak slowly emerge on this. The dense, chewy palate doles out layers of fleshy black cherry, crushed raspberry, vanilla, mocha and chopped mint framed in robust, velvety tannins. Drink 2017–2023.
