Castello di Verduno 2018 Barolo
Castello di Verduno 2018 Barolo
Castello di Verduno is a classy Barolo producer based in the village of Verduno, in the northern part of Barolo. The wines are understated, restrained, and thoroughly complex. This 2018 is ready to go, but don't underestimate its ability to cellar for many years.
Ciabot Berton 2018 Barolo '1961'
Ciabot Berton 2018 Barolo '1961'
Ciabot Berton is one of Barolo's most underrated producers. Marco & Paolo Oberto own prestigious sites in La Morra, Rocchettevino and Roggeri, and make a Barolo '1961' made from a blend of all their sites. Marco makes wines in a gentle style - never highly extracted, but always with beautiful aromatics and finesse.
Rocche Costamagna 2018 Barolo
Rocche Costamagna 2018 Barolo
Rocche Costamagna is a small estate based in La Morra with holdings in some excellent vineyards, the prize being Rocche dell'Annunziata. This wine has multiple vineyard sources, including in La Morra and Verduno. The 2018 is a soft, lively expression with gentle tannins and decent concentration. This is drinking perfectly now but is also suitable for medium-term cellaring.

This Month's Mixed Cases

The Sub-Region



Barolo is a the home to some of Italy's greatest wines and spiritual homeland of Nebbiolo. The vineyard is roughly 2,000 hectares of rolling hills in the province of Cuneo in Piedmont, in the hills known as The Langhe.

The DOCG (denominazione di origine controllata garantita) covers 11 communes: 5 major ones of Barolo, La Morra, Monforte d'Alba, Serralunga d'Alba and Castiglione Falletto; then 6 minor ones of Novello, Verduno, Grinzane Cavour, Diano d'Alba, Roddi and Cherasco, the latter two only having one vineyard each. These communes are then further fractioned down into 171 single vineyard sites, known locally as Menzioni Geografiche Aggiuntive (MGAs), a rather awkward expression for what we used to call the 'Crus'. Having an MGA associated with the name of the wine is a signal that the wine has elevated quality, and most top Barolos, barring a few exceptions, are produced and named this way.

We normally carry a wide range of wine from here, with a focus on a core of producers. Monchiero is one of our favourites, an ultra-traditional producer who uses long macerations and ages the wines only in large Slavonian oak casks. We have their single vineyard Barolos from Montanello, Roere di Santa Maria and occasionally Rocche di Casteglione. The historic producer Luigi Einaudi has fantastic vineyards in a few of Barolo's communes, we tend to favour their Terlo Vigna Costa Grimaldi from the commune of Barolo, but we are anticipating the release of their debut vintage of Monvigliero from Verduno.
