Thoughts on the matter: “I like all paintings. I always look at the paintings, good or bad, in barbershops, furniture stores, provincial hotels. I’m like a drinker who needs wine. As long as it is wine, it doesn’t matter which wine.”
I will not take just any wine and if I have a choice on my last supper one on the wines on the table that evening will be Nebbiolo from the Piedmont. Tonight, we have the newest release from Barolo on the table and 2013 is being touted as another “Killer” vintage from the Piedmont.
2013 Barolo Tasting at Wine Watch Wine Bar
Saturday September 2nd, 2017
2013 Bruna Grimaldi Barolo “Camila”
Price: $39.75 Sale $34.98 Case $406
The story of Azienda Bruna Grimaldi is one of family tradition: people born and raised in Barolo among the hills that connect the villages of Grinzane Cavour to Serralunga, combined with a passion for wine and working the vineyards that has been handed down through the decades. The winery has grown over the years, thanks to its dedication to the great wines of the Langhe and great care in the selection of the most suitable vineyards for the production of Barolo.
2013 Bruna Grimaldi Barolo “Bricco Ambrogio”
Price: $45.00 Sale $39.60 Case $459
Robust and full bodied, with intense perfumes, a long finish and a brilliant garnet red color with orange reflections. Aroma: Ample and intense with sensations of violet, pepper, raspberries and dried roses along with the typical nose of tar.
2013 Parusso Barolo
Price: $55.00 Sale $48.40 Case $561
Wild cherry and fresh flowers, truffles and more this is a classic Barolo with exotic spices and orange peel notes. A good amount of tannins with liqueur like fruit very distinct with a long layered finish, an excellent entry level Barolo but hardly entry level in quality. Finish 45+ Excellent +
2013 Scavino Barolo
Price: $39.00 Sale $34.32 Case $398
(93 Points) The Paolo Scavino 2013 Barolo sports the depth and elegance that famously characterizes the house style. Fruit is sourced from various points across the appellation and the specific blend changes according to the needs of the vintage. Among the various Barolo wines made by this estate, this wine is the most accessible and approachable for sure. The bouquet offers compelling aromas of black fruit and dried blackberry and there's plenty of spice, licorice and tar at the back. The wine shows its complexity as well as its varietal purity. You'll notice the handwritten signature of patron Enrico Scavino on the front label. The Wine Advocate
2013 Ceretto Barolo
Price: $48.00 Sale $42.24 Case $490
(91 Points) The 2013 Barolo is an expressive, elegant wine. Freshly cut flowers, mint, sweet red cherries and chalky notes give the 2013 its distinctive high-toned profile. The tannins are incisive, but not at all intrusive. I tasted the 2013 from an approximate final blend. If the bottled wine is anything like the barrel sample, the 2013 will be terrific at this level. Today, the 2013 is delicate, aromatic and absolutely beautiful. Fruit sources are Gabutti and pieces that don't go into the single vineyard wines. The quality of the vintage at Ceretto is evident here. Vinous / Antonio Galloni
2013 La Spinetta Barolo Garretti
Price: $72.00 Sale $63.36 Case $735
(91 Points) The 2013 Barolo Vigneto Garretti is soft, succulent and open-knit, all qualities that make it an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next few years. Sweet red cherry, plum, cinnamon, leather, mint and French oak overtones give the wine its opulent, flamboyant personality. The 2013 spent 18 months in mostly neutral oak. Vinous / Antonio Galloni
2013 Vietti Barolo Castiglione
Price: $55.00 Sale $48.40 Case $561
(93 Points) The 2013 Barolo Castiglione is rich, powerful and intense, especially for what is the estate's entry-level Barolo. Dark cherry, plum, spice, new leather and menthol are all used together. Intense and voluptuous, the Castiglione shows the richer, more intense side of the vintage. Time in the glass helps release the aromatics and the brighter side of Nebbiolo. Quite simply, the 2013 is a super Barolo Castiglione that is starting to close the qualitative gap with the single vineyard Barolos. Vinous / Antonio Galloni
2013 Aldo Conterno Barolo Bussia
Price: $87.00 Sale $76.56 Case $888
Aldo Conterno’s Barolo Bussia is produced from five hectares of prime vineyards in Bussia Soprano, the original section of what has become a rather large vineyard in recent years. These five hectares are spread across three separate parcels with vines averaging 35-40 years old, with no vines younger than 20 years old.
(94 Points) "A fragrant style, offering rose, cherry, earth, mineral and cumin aromas and flavors. Young and tense, yet shows fine potential, with complex flavors, good structure and a long aftertaste. Best from 2023 through 2040." Wine Spectator
2013 Scavino Barolo Bric Del Fiasc
Price: $91.00 Sale $80.08 Case $929
(95 Points) From Castiglione Falletto (but close to La Morra), the 2013 Barolo Bric dël Fiasc sees fruit sourced from a family-owned parcel located 270 meters above sea level with marl limestone soils on one side. The other side of the hilltop is characterized by sandy soils that you tend to see in this township. This is a darkly saturated and rich expression of Nebbiolo with bright aromas of dark cherry, dried blackberry, spice, leather and toasted hazelnut. The wine stands out for the singular elegance it possesses, especially in terms of mouthfeel. The finish is still youthful and succulent, so think long-term cellar aging. The Wine Advocate
