Luciano Sandrone Barbera d’Alba 2020

R494.99 inc. VAT
"The 2020 Barbera d'Alba is another wine that shows the greater refinement at Sandrone these days. Even so, there's plenty of richness in the ripe red cherry, plum, mocha and spice flavors. Soft, silky contours wrap it all together, with a gentle kiss of oak that lingers. The 2020 is an absolute delight." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Luciano Sandrone “Valmaggiore” Nebbiolo d’Alba 2020

R560.00 inc. VAT
"The 2020 Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore is gorgeous. Crushed red berry, spice, leather, mint and rose petal all grace this exquisite, silky Valmaggiore. The aromatics alone are so beguiling, but all the elements are so nicely balanced. The 2020 is compelling today, but will be even better in another few years. " - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"This is a stunner. The Paolo Scavino 2016 Barolo Riserva Rocche dell'Annunziata is a beautifully balanced and memorable wine that will continue to delight for years to come. It is compact and silky in texture with abundant and very lively aromas of dark fruit and wild cherry. The Rocche dell'Annunziata vineyard is located in La Morra. This is a gorgeous wine that awards lots of emotion. Production is 6,800 bottles." - Monica Larne, The Wine Advocate

Paolo Scavino Barolo Bric dël Fiasc 2018

R1,595.00 inc. VAT
"With aromas of earth, dried spice and crushed stone, the Paolo Scavino 2018 Barolo Bric dël Fiasc holds its own in this vintage. Thanks to its wide shoulders, the wine gives emphasis to a core of dark fruit, licorice and grilled herb. This 9,000-bottle production uses fruit from the Fiasco vineyard in Castiglione Falletto." - Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

Elio Grasso Dolcetto d’Alba “dei Grassi” 2021

R325.00 inc. VAT
"The 2021 Dolcetto d'Alba dei Grassi is gorgeous. Effusive blue/purplish fruit, lavender, licorice, spice, cloves, graphite and a good bit of Monforte tannin infuse the 2021 with quite a bit of character. There is no shortage of personality here. This is far from an easygoing entry-level wine, that much is obvious." Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Elio Grasso Barbera d’Alba “Vigna Martina” 2020

R550.00 inc. VAT
"The 2020 Barbera d'Alba Vigna Martina offers an appealing combination of fruit intensity with Monforte structure and savoriness. Scorched earth, leather, tobacco, cedar and dried herbs all open in the glass. A lengthy ferment with submerged cap maceration yields a distinctly Barolo-like Barbera with a good bit of complexity but less overt fruit than is often found in most Barberas." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Paolo Scavino Dolcetto d’Alba 2021

R285.00 inc. VAT
"Our 50 years old Dolcetto vines ensure a beautiful complexity in this wine. Purple colour, fresh and delicate aromatics of cherry, blueberry, spices and flowers. The structure has a lightness and brightness in it. Well defined by good tannins and harmonious acidity this wine has a pleasant freshness and intriguing character." - Winemaker's notes

Paolo Scavino Barbera d’Alba 2021

R325.00 inc. VAT
"The 2021 Barbera d'Alba is fabulous. Rich and explosive, the 2021 is packed with inky dark fruit, spice, mocha, new leather and licorice. This flamboyant, racy Barbera is sure to be a crowd pleaser. I loved it." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Poderi Aldo Conterno Bussiador Langhe Chardonnay 2017

R1,100.00 inc. VAT
"This beautiful Chardonnay opens to spicy intensity with dried apricot and tropical fruit, all presented with heightened intensity and volume. The Poderi Aldo Conterno 2017 Langhe Chardonnay Bussiador is ripe and round with hints of yellow candy and ripe fruit. These opulent and softly voluptuous fruit flavors wrap smoothly over the palate. The finish is silky and fine with distant hints of crushed stone or mineral. Some 8,000 bottles were made." -Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate
