THE RECENT PICK

Pecchenino, Barolo "San Giuseppe"

Big, Aromatic, Barolo! We love it!
"So Beautiful..." James Suckling

We love this Barolo!

Big, intoxicating aromatics fill the glass - this red is going to go fast!

Rich, inviting aromas of ripe cherry, fresh picked strawberries, tea leaves, cracked pepper and dried fig will overwhelm you.

We were expecting this wine to be young and not yet approachable, but it is just right!

The flavors are sensational: mint, dried herbs, menthol, cherry, raspberries and orange rind. The fruit is not overpowering, rather balanced and graceful.

A Barolo with this much youthful approachability, while still retaining its classic structure, acidity and balance, is rare.

The 2013 Piedmont vintage offers so much depth, especially for younger wines.

Pair it with your favorite ragu, fresh burrata, medium-hard cheeses, wild mushroom risotto and roasted meats.

We will be drinking this beauty from now until 2028.

Make sure you get enough to last you the next decade!

$45.95 per bottle / $551.40 per case

"The aromas to this are so beautiful with ripe strawberry, dried lemon and flowers. Full body, dense palate of lots of ripe fruit and a long and flavorful finish. A top wine for the vintage"
