A 93 Point Barbaresco Bargain For Now or Later!

Damilano Nebbiolo Langhe Marghe 2011Barbaresco is often cast as Barolo’s little sister – softer, more feminine, and somehow just less “serious” than burly Barolo.  While there’s some truth to the stereotype, greats like Bruno Giacosa and Angelo Gaja have proven that  Barbaresco can be just as rich, complex and long-lived as any Barolo.  And you’ll never have a better chance to experience both the majesty of outstanding Nebbiolo and the grace and subtlety of beautiful Barbaresco than with the 2009 Barbaresco DOCG from Produttori del Barbaresco – especially while it’s nearly 30% off at $31.98 for bottles or just $28.98/ea by the case. Delicious now with lamb or rich foods and built to age, too.

 

Sancerre Rouge with Burgundy Pinot Flair
