Vineyard: La Morra
Production: 4,000 bottles
From Michele Reverdito’s favourite cru comes Barolo Bricco Cogni, planted by Silvano Reverdito in 1967, the year he was married. An aromatic powerhouse in 2016 with dark cherry, plum, lavender, spice and licorice all melding beautifully together. This is super-impressive in the early going. Truly a Barolo of class and character, the Bricco Cogni has so much to offer.
A superb single-vineyard Ciró Rosso made from 100% Gaglioppo grown in sandy clay soils, fermented in stainless steel and aged in concrete for a year. It has an enticing nose of red fruits, orange peel, scrub-brush, baking spices, and a deeper, cherry kirsch sweetness.
Vineyard: Serralunga d’Alba
Production: 6,000 bottles
This vineyard is characterized by its considerable altitude, which brings noteable freshness to the Nebbiolo grown here. Bardarina is especially powerful in this vintage. Intense black and blue fruit, leather, licorice, smoke and spices meld together for incredibly dense and complex wine backed up by considerable structure. This is a wonderfully complete Barolo that will reveal its greatness in time.
95% Sangiovese, 5% Merlot. A knockout at its price point. Enjoyable now, with the addition of Merlot increasing the suppleness of the fruit and palate. Delicate aromatics of red fruits, underbrush, truffles, violet petals, and spices spring from the glass. Sleek and polished, with some mocha and gentle herbal notes adding to the palate.
Collemattoni is Certied Organic
Grenache 40 %, Syrah 60 %
An incredibly expressive bouquet: peony, violet, white pepper, cocoa, eucalyptus and star anise. An impressive palate from the outset with powerful flavour. The body is vibrant, unctuous and sensual leading to a mineral and acid driven finish. With its power and juiciness, Bélandes goes perfectly with braised lamb, roasted rabbit or roast duck.
50% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 25% Cinsault
A deep ruby red. The nose dances with aromas of black cherries and blackberries, while the alluring palate sings with complex notes of balsam, spices, and wild blackberries. Suggestions of cocoa and mocha anchor the perfectly-balanced ending.
