2015 Bel Colle Monvigliero Barolo DOCG (PRE-ARRIVAL ONLY)
Pre-arrival only wine lands December and will be $125.
95 Points, Gary Walsh – “Red and black fruit, spice and liquorice, that earthy sort of bass note rumbling away, which Monvigliero quite often has (and so often the liquorice too). Red fruits, walnut and a smattering of dried herb, a subdued succulence with plenty of brick dust tannin in the mix, perhaps a bit of orange peel perfume wafting about too. Finishes fresh and bright with the suction of plenty of tannin on the back palate. Impressive, yet again. Perhaps lighter in frame and less brooding than the 2013, but none the worse for it.” Drink 2022-2035
Jancis Robinson 17/20 – “Verduno. Tasted blind. Mid to deep ruby with orange tinges. A little herbal and subdued on the nose. Quite closed while the concentrated fruit is slow to unfurl on the palate with marked acidity and wall-to-wall tannins. Great tactile finish, but not ready by far." (WS) Drink 2022-2032
