THE 'NUTSHELL'

Okay, are you ready?  Here's the short version: 2017 was a warm vintage that in the best hands (our portfolio top to bottom), yielded some of the most aromatic wines of the modern age sure to absolutely delight you whether on your Holiday Table this winter or decades from now.  We are excited, we are passionate, we are offering remarkable direct-import pricing, AND, while these wines are highly allocated on a national scale, and in unusually short supply, we are deeply fortunate to be among their largest global customers and can offer these to you with reckless abandon.  Buy Early.  Buy Heavy.  Email me and we and we can pick a time to discuss and get you squared away, whether it's a single special bottle, or a deeply discounted multiple case order.

Fratelli Alessandria Barolo DOCG, 2017
from $60.00
This is the cellar-stuffer.  If you're going to lay some Barolo into the gas tank to have on hand and crush with a nice steak, or at the end of a long week, this is IT.  Indeed, in recent memory at a tasting with Shop friends/clients and winemaker...
Fratelli Alessandria "San Lorenzo di Verduno" Barolo DOCG, 2017
from $78.00
This is my favorite wine from this producer, my friend Vittore.  This is not the richest, nor the flashiest, nor the darkest, nor the most tannic...but, to me, this wine is just about perfect...every year.  Again, this year, my friend hand-bottled...
Fratelli Alessandria "Gramolere" Barolo DOCG, 2017
$86.00
This is the "SECRET" wine.  The come-from-behind ager...the delicious.  The serious but still incredibly fun to drink.  BALANCE. “The 2017 Barolo Gramolere is a powerful, tightly wound wine full of Monforte tension. Readers will have to be patient...
Fratelli Alessandria "Monvigliero" Barolo DOCG, 2017

This is "THE" wine.  The most opulent, the show-stopper.  A wine to marvel at and to guzzle when you're in the mood to set the World on fire. “The 2017 Barolo Monvigliero marries the raciness of the year with the floral lift and elegance of this ...
Cantina del Pino Barbaresco DOCG, 2017
from $50.00
This is one of my favorite wines on the planet.  Favorite.  Stuff the Cellar...drink this bottle as often as you can.  Indeed, I confess that during Covid, there was a particularly challenging couple of weeks there when a bottle of Renato Vacca's...
Cantina del Pino "Ovello" Barbaresco DOCG, 2017
from $68.00
This is one of my favorite wines on the planet.  Favorite.  It really can be your birthday everyday; if you treat yourself to this sort of high level drink, it's just about as close to heaven in a glass as I've tasted. From June 2021 Reviews in th...
Cantina del Pino "Albesani" Barbaresco DOCG, 2017

This is wine is a treasure.  Rarer than rare.  250 cases, WORLDWIDE availability.  Favorite.  It really can be your birthday everyday; if you treat yourself to this sort of high level drink, it's just about as close to heaven in a glass as I've t...
Silvano Bolmida "Vigne dei Fantini" Barolo Bussia DOCG, 2017
$58.00
I just LOVE this wine year in and year out.  Silvano Bolmida is a teacher...indeed, a professor at the local university for winemaking.  I do not have the chance to harvest or make wine at this point in my career...instead of worrying about the ...
Silvano Bolmida Barolo Bussia Riserva DOCG, 2015
$98.00
This wine is a SHOW STOPPER.  If you can get a bottle Silvano's 'Riserva' tucked in your hot little shopping cart, onto your dinner table, and into your glass, you might just count me as one of your best friends...and, all I did was tell you about...
Francesco Rinaldi "Brunate" Barolo DOCG, 2017
$82.00
“The 2017 Barolo Brunate shows off its brawn and size. Firm, muscular tannins wrap around a core of sweet red berry fruit, iron, dried herbs, licorice, tobacco and brambly, earthy notes. I would give the 2017 at least a handful of years in bottle....
Francesco Rinaldi "Cannubi" Barolo Riserva DOCG, 2015
$148.00
Aromas of fragrant purple flower, red berry and dark spice mingle together with menthol notes. Showing structure and finesse, the delicious, elegant palate delivers black raspberry, juicy morello cherry and licorice. Fine-grained tannins lend poli...
Le Piane Boca DOC, 2017
from $78.00
I ALWAYS forget this wine until I am reminded...and, oh...THEN.  This Alto Piemontese wine sits in a class of its own.  Cooler temperatures, rustic tannin, and beguiling fruit send this bottling straight to the cellar for potentially decades of de...
