  • 2017 Langhe Nebbiolo DOC, Casali del BaroneRed Wine

    2017 Langhe Nebbiolo DOC, Casali del Barone

    £1795

    The queen of black grapes, Nebbiolo, is the protagonist of Casali del Barone, a range of wines that express the tradition and history of the Piedmont region, between Langhe and Monferrato.

    This 2017 Langhe Nebbiolo DOC is a focused and pure expression of Nebbiolo showing layers of red fruit such as sour & black cherries alongside delicate hints of violets and cedar.

    It has already started to develop some tertiary spice and woody earthiness which just adds yet another dimension to this fabulously good value wine.

    Enjoy this full wine with hearty, rich dishes such as ragu and game or pair it with a classic mature or blue cheese.

  • 2017 Barolo ‘Patres’, San SilvestroRed Wine

    2017 Barolo ‘Patres’, San Silvestro

    £2650

    A stylish and traditionally styled Barolo, with expressive aromas of dried fruit, roses and tar. The deep fruits are layered with earthy minerality on the smooth and mouth-filling palate and sweet tannins weave through to a very long, elegant finish.

    The name ‘Nebbiolo’ comes from one of two schools of thought: some believe as the harvest of Nebbiolo usually occurs in October, when foggy weather is common, it takes the name from ‘nebbia’ meaning ‘fog’; however, others believe the name is derived from the presence of ‘pruina’, a substance which gives the appearance of a foggy haze on the berry’s skin. The Nebbiolo vines are grown in the northern Italian region of Piedmont, where the climate is continental and is tempered by the Tanaro River and its tributaries. Grown in marl clay and sand soils, the late-ripening variety is usually harvested in early October.

  • 2018 Barolo, Giacomo FenocchioRed Wine

    2018 Barolo, Giacomo Fenocchio

    £3795

    We love the Barolos from Giacoma Fenocchio because they are so drinkable upon release – which is a much-overlooked virtue as not everyone wants to wait 10 years to drink their wine. The good news is if that’s your thing, then Fennocchio Barolo’s are excellent for medium-term cellaring.

    This 2018 Barolo is Fennocchio’s introduction to his Barolo’s and the wineries style.  Made from 100% Nebbiolo sourced from twenty year old vines planted in the Monteforte d’Alba region. Made using traditional methods and ageing for 30 months in large Slovenian oak casks, in the glass, the wine has a deep ruby colour with an intense ethereal bouquet with flavours of liquorice and wild rose alongside the warm and spicy aromas.

  • Zalto Burgundy Glass Wine Republic Heros Red Wine

    Zalto Burgundy Glass

    £4000

    This is a must-have glass for any serious wine drinker and without doubt our favourite glass here at Wine Republic.  It really excels with expressive, perfumed wines such as Pinot Noir and Nebbiolo but we also think it is a brilliant glass for Chardonnay and Viognier.

    The Zalto Burgundy glass is the widest of all of the Zalto glasses and in turn, has the largest surface area thus allowing for rapid aeration.  The shape of the bowl is the key to making this glass world-leading, it allows those delicate flavours and aromas to be maximised. The narrow rim and straight edges hold these aromas within the glass allowing for maximum appreciation of the aromas of your chosen wine.   Over the years of using this glass, we have noticed it accentuates spice, berry and floral characteristics of the wine.

  • Offer 2016 Barolo Tortoniano, Michele ChiarloRed Wine

    2016 Barolo Tortoniano, Michele Chiarlo

    £4200 15% saving

    This magnificent Barolo is a complex and full-bodied wine with inviting aromas of deep fruits, rose petals, juniper berries and a hint of fine spice. The palate shows a wonderful harmony, with silky tannins and remarkable elegance and persistence.

    The vineyard sits on a southeast to southwesterly orientation and the vines are trained according to the Guyot method. The vines are thinned during the summer months to control the health and vigour of the vine. The soils are from the Tortonian geological area of La Mora and Barolo, which is characterised by sedimentary clay and Sant’Agata marl interspersed with grey-blue sandstone. A significant presence of microelements specifically magnesium and manganese enhance the soil’s complexity. The grapes are manually harvested at optimum maturity.

  • 2008 Barolo Bussia Dardi le Rose, Poderi CollaRed Wine

    2008 Barolo Bussia Dardi le Rose, Poderi Colla

    £5995

    The Dardi le Rose vineyard, in the hamlet of Dardi, is located on the slopes of the Bussia hill, an area regarded as one of the best for the production of full-bodied Barolo with the potential to age well. These wines reflect the quality and principles that Beppe Colla has devoted his life to. In 1961 he was the first to include ‘Bussia’ on his wine labels – elevating the status of the cru. The vineyard covers 8 hectares, 6ha of which are planted entirely with Nebbiolo, south and south-west facing at 300-350m altitude.

    The 2008 Barolo Bussia Dardi le Rose is a pretty and delicate wine. Dark red cherries, plums, spices, liquorice and menthol are all woven together gracefully. The 2008 emphasizes the elegance and finesse of this vintage.  Fabulous now and even better if you decant it and allow it to breath for an hour – although the aromas that waft out may lead to temptation!

    Perfect with a big Veal chop or good buttery egg pasta with shaved black truffle. Also works well with particularly rich fish dishes such as roast turbot.

    1997 Barbaresco Tenuta Roncaglie, Poderi Colla

    £6950

    Since 1880 the Roncaglie cru has been recognised as one of the best and most important vineyards for Barbaresco production. Poderi Colla’s Tenuta Roncaglia estate has eight hectares of Nebbiolo under vine, at an altitude of 240-280 metres and benefiting from a southern exposure. This enables the vines to produce clean, ripe fruit that’s hand-picked before being transported to Poderi Colla’s winery in Cascine Drago for vinification and maturation. Tenuta Roncaglia’s wines are some of the finest examples of Barbaresco around.

    This 1997 vintage of Barbaresco Roncaglia exhibits a classic nose of rose petals, strawberry jam, tobacco and spice  Rich, savoury on the palate with sweet tannin.  The primary fruit has started to take a backseat with more gamey and floral flavours coming through.  It finishes with fine long tannins with great acidity – making you go for another sip.  At its peak through the next 10 years.

  • 2010 Barbaresco Martinenga, Marchesi di GrésyRed Wine

    2010 Barbaresco Martinenga, Marchesi di Grésy

    £6995

    Barbaresco Martinenga takes its name from Marchesi di Grésy’s Martinenga vineyard situated in the commune of Barbaresco. This single-vineyard (of 11.93ha) has the shape of an amphitheatre, with Asili to the west and Rabaja to the north-east. These south-southwest facing vineyards have a favourable microclimate, which allows the production of high-quality grapes even in potentially difficult vintages.

    ‘Rose petals, violets and dark red cherries emerge from the 2010 Barbaresco Martinenga. In 2010 the Martinenga is quite supple, open and generous, with a kick of acidity and brightness on the finish, both signatures of the year. Beautiful, structured and powerful in the glass, yet also restrained in the classic Gresy style, the 2010 is a beauty. This is a fabulous showing.’ 92+ points, Antonio Galloni – Vinous

  • 2011 Barolo `Ravera`, G.D. VajraRed Wine

    2011 Barolo `Ravera`, G.D. Vajra

    £7450

    Aldo Vaira’s wonderfully tended vineyards and immaculate winemaking produce this delicious single-vineyard Barolo.   Opening with a nose of blueberries and blackcurrants, the wine then develops with hints of iron and bitter orange zest. The palate is rich with cassis and blackberries, mineral characters and tense tannins, all coming together on a spicy, peppery finish with incense notes.

    Ravera is a cru located in the southwest quadrant of the Barolo zone. The vineyard runs north to south across the communes of Barolo and Novello. The soil here is a mix of iron-rich clay and sand, uncompacted, with good permeability and drainage. This translates into a very vibrant yet dense wine that promises evolution over time. The vineyard has been farmed since 2001 but produced Langhe Nebbiolo until 2008. Today it produces a Barolo with fine aromas, sapid flavour and great complexity.

  • 2004 Barbaresco Gaiun, Marchesi di GrésyRed Wine

    2004 Barbaresco Gaiun, Marchesi di Grésy

    £9500

    Produced from a section of Grésy’s Martinenga vineyard – Gaiun is a parcel of 2.3ha of vines with a southerly exposure near Asili. The first vintage of Gaiun was in 1982, and it’s produced in only the best vintages and is always an impressive Barbaresco with fine structure and great finesse.

    The 2004 Barbaresco Gaiun Martinenga is elegance personified. I was quite impressed with this wine’s seamless texture and expansive, ripe fruit and refined bouquet. The style is simply beautiful, as the wine marries modern and traditional approaches with uncommon elegance. There is outstanding depth here and lovely integration of the tannins. Nothing, in particular, stands out, just the wine’s exceptional balance. Gaiun is made from a plot adjacent to Asili and shares a similar softness to the Barbarescos that are made in that storied vineyard.  92 points, Antonio Galloni – Vinous

  • 2005 Barbaresco Camp Gros, Marchesi di GrésyRed Wine

    2005 Barbaresco Camp Gros, Marchesi di Grésy

    £9500

    The pride of the Marchesi di Gresy house, Camp Gros is a 2.6ha parcel within their renowned Martinenga estate, towards the eastern end of the amphitheatre.

    Aromas of savoury, sweet tobacco, dried cherry fruit and rose petal. An immensely full and complex wine with layers of ripe plum and wild cherry fruit on the palate. Well-structured with a firm tannic backbone – the richness of the fruit makes this a magnificent wine. The long and full finish has more tobacco and spice notes, all balanced by fresh acidity.   After 15 years of ageing, this wine is clearly in its drinking window but it has such structure and class that it will continue at its peak for at least another decade.

    ‘Lovely precision to the aromas of cherry and minerals. Sweet on entry, then high-pitched and penetrating in the middle palate, with a strong acid/tannin spine providing energy and support. This wonderfully silky and perfumed wine is completely different in texture from the Gaiun. Perhaps best today on the rising, palate-staining finish, which features a whiplash of cherry, raspberry and orange peel flavors and a vibrant mineral dust quality. Reminded me of an Anne Gros Clos Vougeot.’  95+ points, Stephen Tanzer – Vinous
