  • 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 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”

  • Castello di Perno Barolo 2017

    £52.95

    “The Castello di Perno 2017 Barolo opens to a dark garnet color with ripe cherry, plum and elegantly integrated spice. This Barolo shows classic, tapered lines with some of the extra concentration and sweet berry fruit that comes naturally to a hot vintage such as 2017. This Barolo is ready to go straight out of the gate. Drink: 2023-2035. 91 points”

  • Castello di Perno Barolo Castelletto 2017

    £62.95

    “I love the modern label design of this handsome bottle. The Castello di Perno 2017 Barolo Castelletto reveals a robust bouquet with concentrated perfumes that recall dried cherry, black rose and fragrant tea leaf. Much of that intensity comes as a natural part of the vintage, with heat and dry growing conditions that produced smaller, richer berries. Drink: 2023-2038. 93 points”

  • Ettore Germano Barolo Prapo 2019

    £59.95

    “The 2019 Barolo Prapò (with fruit from Serralunga d’Alba) is a rich and amply fleshed-out wine with dark fruit aromas, plenty of spice and dried rose, along with grilled rosemary and cola. You also get that reddish, metallic earthy note that appears so frequently in wines from this part of the appellation. The finish is medium-rich and fresh. Some 9,000 bottles were made. Drink: 2025-2040. 94 points”

  • Ettore Germano Barolo Serralunga d’Alba 2019

    £41.95

    “The 2019 Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d’Alba is a potent yet expressive wine. Dark fruit, herbs, leather, licorice, scorched earth and gravel are all laced together in this decidedly somber Barolo. Firm Serralunga tannins wrap it all together. There is certainly plenty of village character here. Drinking window: 2026-2039. 89 points”

  • Ettore Germano Barolo Vignarionda 2017

    £119.99

    “The Ettore Germano 2017 Barolo Vignarionda reveals a very bright and lively bouquet with ripe fruit, candied cherry, sandalwood, wild rose and rusty nail. The wine shows extra saturation, with no heaviness, and especially fine but firm tannins. Vignarionda exhibits lots of density with energy and life on the finish. Drink: 2024-2040. 94 points”
