2010 Reverdito Barolo 15% Off on a 4-Pack!

 

Late last Summer we introduced you to the fantastic Barolo of Michele Reverdito with his 2009 vintage. What I really like about Reverdito is the way he uses traditional methods (hand harvesting, careful sorting, natural yeast fermentation, and aging in large older barrels) to make wines that are forward and drink very well young. While many traditionally made Baroli need decades of bottle age to shed their youthful structure, the Reverdito is open, and drinking now. Although it will certainly age nicely over the mid-term.

 

Last week, I had the opportunity to taste the just released 2010 vintage of the cuveé we offered last year, and I think it even surpasses the 2009 for young drinking pleasure. The nose features strong aromas of grilled black fruits, and brown spices. On the palate the black fruit flavors are wrapped around a core of ripe, mocha powder inflected tannin. It's a real mouthful with great palate presence.

 

Perhaps the most amazing thing about the wine is the price. For the quality in the bottle, this may be the best value in Barolo around.

 

The 2010s will be arriving at the cave later this week, and as I did last year I'm offering a special pre-arrival 15% off deal on 4-packs. This offer is good through 8/12/14.
