Luca Bosio Barolo
We have spent a lot of time seeking out a range of wines from Piemonte that delivers this kind of value for money – we have always believed a good Barolo does not need to cost $200+ if you know where to look, but we are happy to let you be the judge. The Bosio winery is located in the heart of the premium Langhe district and is now run by third generation Luca (though father Valter is never far away – meeting these guys is a little like something out of a 70s mafia movie!). The wines are elegant and expressive – classic Piemonte, and not a fugazi in sight…
Barolo is the ultimate expression of the Nebbiolo grape – a true icon of the wine world. Full bodied and intense, this complex wine shows hints of spice, vanilla, tar and withered rose, alongside its primary deep cherry fruit flavor. Enjoy with roasted meats, earthy flavours or a classic Osso Buco. We have limited quantities of this wine from the truly exceptional 2016 vintage – don’t miss out.
Good to know – the fruit for this Barolo comes from the district of Verduno, the northern-most village of Barolo. Wines from this area are generally approachable sooner than their counterparts from the other ten villages, so you can buy with the confidence you do not need to lay this wine down any further to enjoy the full expression of this wine (although it will age just as gracefully as any other Barolo and will always reward cellaring).
