A rare bird indeed! Antonio Galloni's Vinous: "The 2014 Barolo is a gorgeous wine that will delight wine lovers who enjoy classically built Barolos. Pliant and expressive, with striking aromatic presence, the 2014 is singing today. Spice, orange peel, new leather, flowers and sweet tobacco all grace this very pretty and exquisitely beautiful Barolo from Conterno. Conterno and his son, Stefano, craft nuanced, classically inspired wines of real character, they are definitely up and coming top growers from Piedmont.” As a rule, Mr. Galloni doesn't blow smoke. Give the Conterno Barolo a try... while you’re at it, pair this gem for an Italian Easter with anything with truffles, a mushroom lasagna or venison carpaccio with EVOO, sea salt and crushed pink peppercorns!
M. Chapoutier Bila Haut Rivesaltes 1999 500mlA fantastic, world class, aged to perfection wine to enjoy after your favorite meal! 100% Grenache from the ‘crest’ soils of the south Roussillon by the Mediterranean, this beauty showcases dark garnet-red colour. Aromatic nose of ripe red berries, dried earth, tobacco and almost tawny port-esque layering and nuances on the velvety-smooth, long finish. Enjoy around the dinner table or outside on a nice spring evening after dinner with your favorite cigar!
