  • Oddero Barolo Villero 2017

    £67.45

    “The 2017 Barolo Villero is delicate and lifted in this vintage, with impeccable balance and tons of class. Villero is not an easy site to find balance, but the 2017 Oddero sure has it. Sweet cherry, crushed raspberry, rose petal, orange peel and cinnamon give the 2017 lovely aromatic nuance to match its mid-weight personality. Drinking window: 2025-2037. 93 points!”

  • Produttori Nebbiolo di Carema Carema Classico 2018

    £23.25

    “The 2018 Carema is a terrific introduction to these wines. Bright and airy in feel, the 2018 is laced with the essence of sweet candied cherry, game, licorice, tobacco, dried flowers and incense. In a nutshell, this is what Carema is all about. The 2018 is just a bit rustic and gamy, but it makes up for that with its personality and overall expression of the appellation. Drinking window: 2020-2030. 91 points

    The Produttori di Carema cooperative is a terrific source for readers who want to explore the ethereal, classically built Nebbiolos of this tiny appellation on the Piedmont- Valle d’Aosta border.”

  • Produttori Nebbiolo di Carema Carema Riserva 2017

    £27.99

    “The 2017 Carema Riserva is a touch forward in profile, but that’s not a bad thing at all, especially for readers looking for a wine to drink now. Sweet red cherry, mint, tobacco, dried herbs and orange peel show the gentle mellowing of a Carema that is entering its early plateau of maturity. Drink this over the next handful of years.

  • Produttori Nebbiolo di Carema Carema Selezione 2016

    £54.99

    “The Produttori di Carema cooperative has been on a tear in recent vintages. These traditionally crafted mountain wines offer so much Nebbiolo character. This year the range includes a new offering, the Carema Selezione, bottled to celebrate the winery’s 60th anniversary.”

  • Proprieta Sperino Lessona 2015

    £55.99

    “This property is managed by Luca and his father Paolo De Marchi (of Isole e Olena in Chianti Classico). It sits at a fascinating spot just at the base of the Italian Alps in a place characterized by one of the most dramatic altitude ascents in Italy. Those mighty mountains rise like a veritable wall causing violent exchanges between hot and cold air. In fact, Luca tells me that this is one of the most hail-prone spots in Italy and frequent storms have wiped out many promising vintages in the past. The property’s soils have loose grains of yellow sand that impart elegant mineral characteristics to the wines.”

  • Proprieta Sperino Rosa del Rosa 2021

    £22.99

    “Good luck pulling away from the 2021 Rosa del Rosa, with its sweetly scented bouquet that mixes notes of dusty rose and ripe strawberries with enriching hints of butter cream and vanilla bean. This sets off all of the pleasure indicators with soft textures complemented by sweet red fruits, then contrasted by sour citrus and, finally, a bump of juicy acidity that keeps the energy high. There’s plenty at length to keep the palate reeling with mouthwatering pleasure, as the Rosa del Rosa, a varietal Nebbiolo Rosato, tapers off wickedly fresh and long. This is, yet again, one at the top ltalian Roses of the vintage. Drinking window: 2022-2024. 93 points”

    Roagna Barolo del Comune di Barolo 2014

    £71.95

    “The 2014 Barolo del Comune di Barolo is a gorgeous entry-level wine in Luca Roagna’s range. Sweet spice, tobacco, dried rose petal, orange peel, menthol and pine give the 2014 a distinctly balsamic profile that is hugely appealing. Medium in body, yet potent and classically austere (as these wines tend to be), the 2014 is supremely delicious. The bouquet alone is incredibly enticing. The Barolo del Comune di Barolo is made entirely from a small parcel in the Terlo cru, but Luca Roagna does not own the site, so he prefers to bottle it under the village designation rather than as a vineyard designate. The 2014 is a real overachiever in its peer group for the year. I loved it. Drinking window: 2020-2029. 92 points

    This is an extraordinary set of wines from Luca Roagna. The 2014 Barbarescos are superb, while the Barolos are very good, especially considering the vintage was much more challenging in Barolo than it was in Barbaresco. A stunning rendition of the flagship Barbaresco Crichët Pajè rounds out the range. Readers will see new Barbaresco bottlings from Gallina, Faset and Albesani in the range this year. As always, the wines are super-classic in feel. Over the last years, Roagna has quietly shortened the amount of time his wines spend in cask and began introducing cement in the cellar. Today’s wines have a sense of fruit purity and inner sweetness that the older wines often did not. I can’t recommend these wines highly enough.”

  • Scarzello Barolo del Comune di Barolo 2017

    £48.95

    Barolo. Grapes come from the Sarmassa and Terlo crus. About 25 days on the skins (normally this is around 50 days), and no ‘cappello sommerso’ (submerged cap), but pumping over only. Aged in 25-hl casks for 20 months.

    Lustrous and just mid ruby. Earthy, minerally, sweet cherry with an undertow of mace and Amaro (herb liqueur). Supple, expressive cherry fruit with muscular, but well-behaved tannins. Very long and with lots of juice on the finish. Drink: 2022-2030. 17 points”

  • Scarzello Barolo Sarmassa Vigna Merenda 2017

    £69.95

    “Barolo. Just mid ruby and youthful-looking. Exciting nose of raspberry and cherry with hints of oatmeal, black pepper and iron. Amazing depth of focused fruit. Succulent cherry fruit with a layer of fine, polished tannins. Very long and finely balanced and almost unrecognisable as a product of the torrid 2017 vintage. Oozes class. Drink: 2021-2034. 17.5 points”
