2013 Einaudi "Terlo Vigna Costa Grimaldi" Barolo (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2013 Einaudi "Terlo Vigna Costa Grimaldi" Barolo (Pre-Arrival)

95 points James Suckling: "Ripe fruit with orange-peel, walnut and ripe-strawberry aromas. Full body, ultra-fine and long tannins and a finish that lasts for minutes. Wow. Gorgeous. Better in 2021 but who can wait?"

2013 Bava "Gionson" Nebbiolo

What do you do when you want to make Nebbiolo in a province where Barbera is king (namely, Alba in northern Piedmont)? You get creative! The Bava Brothers, a fun-loving bunch, decided to find a catchy fantasy name for their 100% Nebbiolo wine. They went American and named it after a real American tradition, Band-Aids, (evidently at a winery you go through a lot of them). "Johnson & Johnson" was too long; they switched to "Johnson" but that's unpronounceable for an Italian so... "Gionson!" That's how you say "Johnson" in Italian! Delicious Nebbiolo, drink...

2013 Silvano Bolmida "Frales" Langhe Nebbiolo

The Langhe Nebbiolo is 100% Nebbiolo, harvested in the beginning of October. It spends a brief 6-7 day fermentation on the skins and then is aged in barrique for 10 months on the lees. The result is a fresher, lower alcohol (12.5%) Nebbiolo that is drinkable yet still complex and flavorful. The perfect accompaniment to lighter pasta dishes or chicken.

This is an especially large-scaled, ample entry-level Barbaresco that shows just how compelling this vintage is here in the Barbaresco zone. Ripe, silky tannins wrap around the voluptuous, engaging finish. The Barbaresco emerges from a parcel just outside Montestefano with a more northerly exposure that in this vintage helped preserve nuance and precision.

Big, rich and explosive in style, the 2012 possesses notable depth and concentration in a style that is shockingly rich for Cannubi. There isn't a whole lot of subtlety here, but there is plenty of power. Here, too, readers will have to be patient. Still, I don't expect the 2012 will ever be particularly polished.

Lifted and aromatically expressive, with good depth, the 2012 impresses for its balance and overall harmony. Best of all, the 2012 will drink well with minimal cellaring. The Barolo Vendemmia is a blend of fruit from the Preda, Monrobiolo and Coste di Rose vineyards." (11/2016)

At the same time, the 2010 is also less aromatically expressive, while the acidity feels softer and more integrated with the fruit.

The wine is full and generous with tones of dark fruit, spice, balsam herb, licorice and dried mint. The best Nebbiolo fruit goes toward Roddolo's Barolo, but the 2009 vintage saw a good crop for both the production of the higher- and lower-tier wines. (ML)" (6/2015)

Vibrant, perfumed and beautifully sculpted in the glass, the 2013 possesses tons of understated intensity. Sweet red cherry, mint, white pepper and anise are all lifted in the glass. The 2013 is an almost shockingly classic Barbaresco from Gaja. The translucent color, vibrant Nebbiolo fruit and austere but noble tannins represent a move towards a much more traditional style.

2011 Francesco Rinaldi Barolo

91 points Wine Spectator: "A vibrant, elegant '11, this exhibits cherry, currant and spice flavors, with hints of tea and tobacco. Stays fresh and persistent, if not that intense or complex overall.

Hints of leather, smoke, tobacco and herbs add shades of nuance as the wine opens up gently in the glass. There is good immediacy here... (AG)" (12/2015)

Luminous and linear, the graceful palate offers tart red cherry, star anise and mineral alongside firm acidity and lithe tannins. (KO)" (2/2017) K&L Notes: Established in 1984 by Arturo Pelizzatti Perego, and now run by Arturo's children Isabella, Emanuele and Guido, ArPePe makes rare wines that are a point of reference for the unique Valtellina terroir, where the famed Nebbiobo grape goes by the name Chiavennasca.
