Wine Enthusiast:

"This elegant, floral expression shows feminine tones of lavender, rose and violet set over a silky mouthfeel." September 2012

Product Description:

Over the course of the year, we have found incredible Barolo and Brunello deals, but top-flight Barbaresco offers have been few and far between.

That's changing. Now.

This is a red all wine lovers, especially you Italian-o-philes, have to try.

We are thrilled to finally offer a top-tier Barbaresco deal. Considering the overwhelmingly positive responses we’ve received for offers on the other “B”s, Barolo and Brunello, it was seriously time for us to deliver on that third 'B'.

Plain and simple, this is a 90 Point, $50 wine for $19.99 ... or less.
How often can you find deals like this?

We were blown away here. Over the last several months, we have found a few outstanding Barolo and Brunello deals … but continued to look for a great Barbaresco to sell in the $20-$30 price point. This is exactly the kind of wine we were looking for.

On top of that, this earned an outstanding 90 Point score from the Wine Enthusiast who remarked “This elegant, floral expression shows feminine tones of lavender, rose and violet set over a silky mouthfeel.”

Bottom line, this is a tremendous deal!!!

"The colour is ruby-red with orange highlights. The bouquet is ethereal, with complex notes of spices, plums, cocoa, and liquorice. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, austere, velvety, harmonic and elegant, with refined tannins. It goes well with red meat, meat on the spit and ripened cheeses." - Importer
