Two Nebbiolo with tremendous reviews and nice prices...
 
The 2013 vintage produced a plethora of beautiful wines. Antonio Galloni of Vinous Media stated "a cool growing season and late harvest produced gorgeous Barolos with striking aromatics, silky tannins, sculpted, vibrant fruit and mid-weight structures."

Today we focus on two highly rated Nebbiolo from Piedmont. Quantities available are limited.

Monchiero logo
Monchiero is nestled in the picturesque commune of Castiglione Falletto in the Barolo region. The terroir here is amongst some of the greatest you will find in all of Piedmont. Monchiero have a superb parcel of Rocche di Castiglione cru in Castiglione Falletto. These are ultra-traditional terroir driven wines of the highest order.
Monchiero Barolo Rocche di Castiglione 2013
Special $112.50

Monchiero Castiglione label Gary Walsh, The Wine Front: Beautiful aromatic herb and floral perfume here, red fruits, crushed rocks, plenty of spice, liquorice root and orange peel. Medium bodied, but dense and powerful, with packed down stony tannin, fresh acidity, layers of spice and amaro herbs, cherry and red fruits, and this soaring precise finish dusted with smashed rock tannin. Great wine. Transparent. Will age for decades. 96 Points
Musso label
 
The Musso winery was founded in 1929 and coincides with one of the most critical moments of the Italian economy and the world, the year of the "Great Depression" Sebastiano Musso, born in 1906, did not lose heart.

Valter Musso, a young winemaker, joined the family winery in the mid-eighties, today is a mature man and head of the winery, overseeing the responsibilities in the vineyard and the winery to produce quality wine.

Today Musso make wonderful Barbaresco from Rio Sordo and Pora crus and many other beautifully crafted wines.

Musso Barolo Pora Reserva 2013
Special $112.50

Musso Pora label Gary Walsh, The Wine Front: Cherry essence here, baking spices, liquorice, a musk and rose perfume. Medium bodied, fresh and lithe, with gentle brick dust tannin, a pleasing purity to the flavour profile, and a long earthy/spicy finish, and something that makes me think of Earl Grey tea. Shows the clarity and muscularity of the wonderful 2013 vintage to great effect. The finish is compelling. 95+ Points
