  • Aldo Conterno Barolo Cicala 2017

    £129.99

    “The Poderi Aldo Conterno 2017 Barolo Bussia Cicala reveals a deep garnet color with some dark copper. Like the other 2017 wines from this celebrated producer, I can’t help but suspect that these areas of Bussia suffered from the heat and some of the other weather challenges associated with this growing season. A clear note of overt ripeness comes across as dried strawberry or sweet crème de cassis. The finish is similarly weighed down by the fruit weight and oak tannins. Drink: 2023-2028. 91 points”

  • Aldo Conterno Barolo Colonnello 2017

    £127.95

    “The Poderi Aldo Conterno 2017 Barolo Bussia Colonnello shows good focus, structure and a sharper character that is often the distinguishing factor in this wine. The bouquet is redolent of dark fruit and plum, but it also shows a solid framing of iron ore and dark stony mineral. These give the wine greater lift and contoured edges. This is not the first time that Colonnello is my favorite wine in this lineup, and I suspect it won’t be the last. Drink: 2025-2040. 94+ points”

  • Aldo Conterno Barolo Romirasco 2017

    £197.95

    “Opening to a dark color and robust consistency, the Poderi Aldo Conterno 2017 Barolo Bussia Romirasco is perhaps the most powerful of the four new releases reviewed here. Wearing broad shoulders and sporting a heavy gait over the palate, the wine sees a solid construction of dark berry and spicy or toasted oak aromas. There is a lot to behold in this bottle, and it definitely shows the potential to soften and relax with more cellar aging. However, you definitely need to put the bottle aside for many years. Drink: 2025-2043. 94 points”

  • Bel Colle Barbaresco Pajore 2019

    £39.95

    “The Bel Colle 2019 Barbaresco Pajorè shows initial restraint in terms of its fruit delivery, and this ultimately adds to the wine’s elegant bouquet. There are soft tones of dried cherry and raspberry, but the wine is also distinguished by crushed limestone or chalky mineral. The Pajorè ends with a cheerful note of dried mint or violet. Drink: 2023-2032. 91 points”

  • Bel Colle Barolo Bussia 2018

    £44.95

    “The Bel Colle 2018 Barolo Bussia shows ripeness on the bouquet with dried cherry and raspberry tart, but the wine is also redolent of garden herb and crushed flowers. This expression from Bussia is very silky and smooth with a polished, medium-weight finish. Earthy sensations appear, and you get hints of rust or iron ore. Drink: 2024-2033. 92 points”

  • Bel Colle Barolo Monvigliero 2018

    £44.95

    “Monvigliero is one of the most sought-after vineyard sites in Barolo today. The Bel Colle 2018 Barolo Monvigliero shows balanced intensity with dried fruit, earth, crushed white pepper, licorice and crushed rose. The wine is complete, thanks to its balanced acidity and integrated tannins. This is the most elegant of the Barolos presented from this estate. Drink: 2024-2035. 93 points”

  • Bel Colle Barolo Simposio 2017

    £39.95

    “Cherry cola, licorice and a touch of balsam herb define the bouquet of the 2017 Barolo Simposio. Like the other wines from Bel Colle, the aromatic intensity here is mild and elegant, but the “Symposium” delivers its keynote speech on the palate, where it shows a very fine, lean and silky texture. The tannins are well on their way to integration and softness in this release of 16,000 bottles. Drink: 2023-2036. 91 points”

  • Cantalupo Collis Breclemae 2015

    £57.95

    “The 2015 Ghemme Collis Breclemae is going to be gorgeous, but it needs time, as it is going through an adolescent phase at present. Brooding and somber, with quite a bit of complexity, the 2015 certainly has a ton to offer. Wild cherry, tobacco, spice, leather and cedar all build as this powerful, strapping Ghemme slowly opens. All the 2015 needs is cellaring to be at its most expressive. Drinking window: 2025-2040. 93 points

    The Arlunno family makes some of the most distinctive wines in Alto Piemonte at their Cantalupo estate. The wines are distinguished by greater power and overall intensity than is often found in Alto Piemonte. This year I was only able to taste two new releases, both of which are highly recommended.”
