Happy Friday from icy Portland!
While we're covered in a layer of ice, that won't stop us from spreading wonderful wine cheer to Italian wine fans nationwide.
We're excited about this new (to us) superb value Barolo: Ascheri 2012. Highly rated by Wine Spectator and by us.
$29.65 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($32.95 regular)
94 points Wine Spectator, Highly Recommended: "Licorice, cherry and tar notes mark this intense, chewy red, packed with sweet fruit midpalate that offsets the dense, dusty tannins. Shows fine integration and length, with the aftertaste echoing licorice, cherry, tar and mineral details. Best from 2019 through 2035.
An exceptional value in Barolo. Tasted Wednesday, we found this to be elegantly structured and pretty darn delicious.
