2012 Revello Barolo

In Barolo on October 20, 2016 at 1:02 pm

revelloLa Morra is special, for it is here that the Nebbiolo grape takes on the ultra-perfumed richness of black cherries and a robust, powerful mid-palate that is unlike anything else in Barolo.

But it gets even better.  The Revellos’ vineyards are entirely within the Cru of Annunziata, a small subsection of La Morra.  This vineyard is entirely southeast-facing, creating a perfect space for catching the morning sun and ripening the grapes to tasty perfection.

The 2012 Revello Barolo opens with a nearly mind-blowing explosion of black cherries, plums, raspberries and rose petals that fills the room with its stunning aromas.  Barolo is known for its tannin structure, and the tannins here are so seamlessly integrated that they create layers of superb detail—a fine delineation cut with clarity and precision.  It’s almost if those Revello boys have managed to capture the essence of cherries, raspberries and roses – a liqueur from each – and transmute it into the body of this exquisite wine.

2013 Anne Gros Bourgogne Rouge

In Burgundy on October 19, 2016 at 6:52 pm


This 2013 is ripe and ready, with powerful black and red Pinot fruits perfuming the air.  Just one glass and the room becomes an aromatic delight of succulent, persistent, and incredibly classy wine.  The palate is harmonious and pure, developing with each sip.  You don’t want to rush through a bottle of this wine, you want to make each and every sip last as long as you can because there is just that much ever-changing flavor to enjoy.

Anne’s wines come at a price, but as Clive Coates notes,“the wines deserve it.”  And I’d underline that statement.  While we’ve got a good amount of this wine in house, and it’s ready to go, no matter how much we have, it’s never enough.  Last time we had this wine, it sold out in two hours.  If you want it, you really have to let us know as soon as possible.  This is truly great stuff.  Please contact us for pricing and availability: or 414-289-9463.
