"A wine for long aging, this transcends the ripening challenges of 2009 with its lovely tannins. Nebbiolo’s floral fragrance seems to emerge directly out of those tannins, the wild strawberry and persimmon fruit scents clean, lasting, edging into violets in their grape-skin freshness. All the elements are balanced and aligned, ready to mature for a decade or more in the cellar." (12/13)

Many of you know today's producer, Sordo Giovanni, as one of Barolo's best buys, and a perennial favorite among Italian Wine Lovers everywhere for their high price/quality wines. Today's wine takes everything you know about this producer ... to an entirely different level.
Rocche di Castiglione is a single vineyard that is located perfectly within the Commune of Castiglione Falleto to produce reference-point Barolo that is at once elegant, aromatic, concentrated and firmly structured. Many critics argue that the wines produced here, at the heart of the region, are some of the best authentic Barolo you can find, and today's 94 point single vineyard Barolo, coming to you for $29.99 (53% off the release price!), is a mind-blowing deal!!!
Only 500 cases in total were produced, and a very small amount made it to the United States. Of that small amount that was imported ... we bought every single case. Perfect for the Barolo lover that has everything ... chances are ... they don't have this!
Not only is this something that will be amazing to try for yourself, it's a great bottle to share with friends and family, as all of them will be asking you the same question - "Where did you get this ... and is more available?"
And, at this price, it is one of our best value Barolo offers in a very long time!
More information about this wine:
"This wine impresses us for the hue, intensity, and the extraordinary beauty of its color. A splendid set of garnets and rubies that illuminate the crystal goblet. Wine perfectly brilliant, that leaves traces vinous dense walls of glass. Its alcoholic strength is expressed in a abundant formation of arches and tears. We are surprised by the intensity, richness and great length of the bouquet. The varietal characteristics of the grape are embellished with expanded from net and elegant sensations that remind us of the ripe fruits of black cherries, blueberries and peach jam. Nuance floral "mountain hay" licorice and tobacco are giving way to those noble tertiary aromas that are formed in a first half in oak barrels of 15-20 hl. and subsequently reduced in the environment of the bottle. Vanilla and hints of underbrush and noble woods complement the olfactory sensations. On the palate we have a hot start and enveloping. Evident but soft tannins and a good acid enhance its presence powerful wine structure, rich, suitable for long years of aging. In the mouth flavors of find even more intense, all the feelings that we transpose the nose. Very long aromatic finish. In conclusion, we are, at this moment, in front of an austere wine and generous, important. A wine that does provide for a very long life. A sure promise for the future. A prestigious wine that will give its admirers feelings and memories that you will not forget so easily." -Winery
