The Barolo Direct Import Offer (Fall 2022)
QUANTITIES HAVE NEVER BEEN MORE LIMITED.
THIS IS A PRE-OFFER; WINES ARE SCHEDULED TO ARRIVE IN EARLY DECEMBER.
THE NUTSHELL: VINTAGE 2018 is ABOUT FINESSE.
AND, YOU ARE INVITED TO PARTAKE IN SOMETHING VERY SPECIAL.
The 2018 vintage has been described insightfully as seductively charming and instantly delicious. Very different in style from the 2017s and, in many critics’ and winemakers’ view, a step up. I always cherish the aromatic, and, here, a set of dignified wines of ‘sweet red fruit, freshness, delicacy and melt-in-the-mouth structures.’
These eminently age-worthy wines will go the distance in the Cellar based not on their brute strength and fat fruit, but instead, founded on silky tannin, ethereal acidity, and fresh concentrated red fruit. Expect beguiling aroma and eager acid when young and as they age, something truly special and unusual to emerge. I’m excited. Let’s dig in. In short, the lessons of 2011 and 2014 live on. Treat yourself.
Our annual Direct Import Offer continues by the grace of some very special farmers producing some incredibly special wines. This year I feel less casual. Quantities are profoundly limited. I want you to get all of it, no restrictions.
Is it alarmist to declare a Barolo Emergency? Probably. So, instead, I ask: Please review the below wines soon. Please place your order as soon as possible. Might we happen upon an extra case of this or that once the dust settles? Perhaps...but, quantities are exceptionally limited this year and I just want to do the best work for you that I can. Buy Early. Buy Heavy.
IF YOU ARE ORDERING ONLINE: Wherever you live, please mark your order for CURBSIDE PICKUP at CHECKOUT. Whether you live in the West Hartford area, Litchfield County, or elsewhere, please choose "Curbside Pickup." Once the wine arrives we will contact you by phone to make pickup/delivery/shipping arrangements. With two locations now, we have discovered a glitch in the system. "CURBSIDE PICKUP" is our work-around.
