Piedmont Party: A Nebbiolo-Filled Fall

Piedmont memories, cooler weather, a return to braising season -- all reasons to be thinking more and more about a Nebbiolo-filled fall. Add the new arrival of gems from Castello di Verduno and we have a Piedmont party!

With a brand new stellar review from the Italian wine critic we respect most, Antonio Galloni, Verduno's Barbaresco '15 is as attractive and classic as it gets. Experience the super-pretty side of Nebbiolo and grab some of their Langhe Nebbiolo from the soon-to-be-raved-about 2016 vintage. We adore both and you will, too.   

Castello di Verduno Barbaresco 2015

$39.55 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($43.95 regular) 
94 points Vinous, Antonio Galloni: "Castello di Verduno's 2015 Barbaresco is a potent wine. A swath of tannins enshrouds this powerful, structured Barbaresco. Crushed flowers, sweet tobacco, rose petal, dried cherry and mint are all suggestive of a wine that is a touch forward, and yet there is so much fruit and tannin here to make me think the 2015 will drink well for a number of years. The 2015 is a super-classic, expressive Barbaresco endowed with real personality and class. It is also one of the very best wines I have tasted from the estate in some time."
 
Damn this is good! While it shows the power of the vintage, there is exquisite finesse and early accessibility. An absolute classic Barbaresco to enjoy now through the better part of a decade. - Us

Castello di Verduno Langhe Nebbiolo 2016

$22.45 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($24.95 regular) 
For all the power and structure of the Barbaresco '15, Verduno's '16 is all about the pretty side of Nebbiolo. Crushed flowers and gorgeous red fruits linger with spices. As silky and versatile as a Pinot noir, it's simply fantastic Tuesday night juice. - Marcus
