Barolo-A String of Good Vintages

Nebbiolo drinkers are in the middle of an embarrassment of riches. Over the last decade, Barolo and Barbaresco have experienced some of their best vintages, and some, in succession.

Just take out 2002 because of hail storms and 2003 because of abnormally hot conditions and you have an amazing string of top quality years. Most people will talk about 2001, 2004 and 2006 but 2000 has its merits for earlier drinking. 2005 is sandwiched between two great years so it will always be in the shadows, but it offers some nice drinking and good value. And now with 2007's starting to hit the market we have another fleshy, drinker-friendly vintage. Take advantage of our excellent spot in history.

We are happy to have a varied selection of Barolo in stock at the moment. Take a look at this short list and happy shopping.
