Burlotto is synonymous with the town of Verduno, in Barolo. In rare fashion, all of their wines are incredibly sought-after, as they give the same care to a single-vineyard Barolo as they do their Freisa. Speaking of Freisa, Verduno is also home to the great Palaverga grape, which like Freisa is a very fragrant, easy-drinking wine that is so tasty - and Burlotto is the master of it. They have been innovators in Barolo since their inception in the 19th century and were the sole supplier of wine to the house of Savoy. They were also the first to perfect Barolo in the bottle, long before most switched from using demi-john. The Cannubi is the only single-vineyard Barolo they produce that is not located in Verduno. The Cannubi vineyard is located in the town of Barolo, surrounded by a veritable who's who in the world of Barolo, such as Bartolo Mascarello, Pira e Figli, and many others. It is known for being an exceptional breed that delivers a balance of power, freshness, and elegance. It is also one of the most age-worthy vineyards in all of Barolo.

Sandrone is a winery we have spoken about often, and we now have their last read release for this year. We have their amazing Valmaggiore Nebbiolo. This vineyard is outside of Barolo in the famed region of Roero, in Piemonte. It has the structure of Sandrone's winemaking, as well as some of the more plush fruit that is seen in Roero. They make a small amount, just like their Barolo's, and this is one you should snap up right away. It disappears very quickly, and people wait for its release every year.

Brovia is a winery which we absolutely love at the shop! Their Barolo and other Piemontese red varieties were the little secret sommeliers loved to hold near and dear, because they didn't want everyone getting their hands on it - making it scarce. When you didn't think they could best themselves they go and make a wine which absolutely does, and that is their Arneis. This wine is such a beautifully addictive wine. It has the combination of preserved citrus, with a hint of richness on the finish, which can be compared to marzipan. The town of Roero can be hit or miss, but like we say here in the shop, "It is all about the producer." This is one of those times where it is not only true, but it exceeds any expectation.

While we tend to stick to traditionalists in winemaking to put on our shelves there is absolutely no way we could turn our gaze away from this wine. Chiara Boschis comes from a family which symbolizes tradition in Barolo and was the proprietors of the famed Borgogno estate. Now she is the winemaker of E. Pira e Figli, which produce some of the most exceptional wines in and around the town of Barolo. The only thing which is a departure from tradition is her use of new French oak - which can be a bit polarizing to some. In the case of this "Via Nuovo" it is most certainly not! Via Nuovo started as a single vineyard wine across from the winery which is on what was called "The New Road" or Via Nuovo. Now she dedicates this name to the tradition of Barolo, and that is by blending different regions within the appellation to create one great wine. The 2016 has richness, florals, power, spice, and more adjectives which I don't have a big enough vocabulary to add more great descriptors. The only one I will add is the wonderful scent of hazelnuts, which come from the new wood. Ironically hazelnuts are a staple that grows in the area, and if you are near the town of Alba you can smell them being toasted at the Ferrero Factory - a scent that is reminiscent of this wine.

Ciacci Piccolomini is a rockstar among greats. Each release of their Brunello is widely anticipated, but not nearly as much as their flagship and raison d'être - the Vigna di Pianrosso Riserva. Pianrosso is their plot which makes the most concentrated, robust wines that are a perfect canvas for opulence. They also have a fragrance that I can only compare to the spice of great Barolo, with the coffee-like aromas of St. Julien Bordeaux. The 2015 is a blockbuster. Only 6 bottles were given, so grab them fast!

Any visitor to the Four Eleven Wine Shop will instantly recognize how much we love Nebbiolo and the wines of Piedmont.  While Nebbiolo is certainly the headliner of the region in Barolo and Barbaresco, other varieties also make delicious wines for both shorter and longer-term drinking.  Many wine consumers are familiar with other varieties in Piedmont, like Arneis from Roero, or the Barbera d’Alba (Yum, truffles…) but Dolcetto is still a relatively obscure wine. We would bet if you asked 50 sommeliers what are the last 50 wines you drank, Dolcetto would appear maybe once or twice on the entire list. If that…  Why is this so? Perhaps because Dolcetto is a difficult variety in the vineyard and many examples are over-extracted and simple, with black fruits, high tannins, and a lack of acidity.  However, if you speak with many winegrowers in Piedmont, and this was also true historically, they will tell you that Dolcetto graces their table more so than Barbera or Nebbiolo.  For a long time, vignerons proclaimed “sell the Nebbiolo, drink the Dolcetto.”

They were also the first to perfect Barolo in the bottle, long before most switched from using demi-john. The Acclivi is a Barolo which is a blend of all their crus - Cannubi, Monvigliero, and their other vineyards. It captures the essence of them all, which is the elegance the wines interpret from the marl soil of Verduno. This vineyard blend is a thing of beauty!

When I picture great Barolo in my head I see a table of fresh berries, dried berries, bunches of curing tobacco, and fragrant aromatics like menthol, potpourri, and star anise. When I pour the wines from Oddero into the glass I get the entire vision in one smell, and it pulls me in like Alice falling down the rabbit hole. Oddero isn't the first Barolo on many people's list, but those who know their wines also know they are a must for any table or cellar. This is another great from the amazing 2016 vintage.

Sandrone should be spelled "SandrOOOOOHHHHHHne" because it has brought OH so many good times. Their Cannubi Boschis brought Luciano Sandrone's winery to fame, which is now a wine called "Aleste", but being so rooted in tradition it is their "Le Vigne" that really showcases their style. Le Vigne honors the blending tradition of Barolo. It is blended with grapes from Castiglione, Novello, Barolo, and Serralunga. Each commune adds its own piece to the symphony. Castiglione imparts fragrance, Novello and Barolo elegance, and Serralunga the backbone. Together they make a harmonious medley that comprises Le Vigne. To me, the telltale character from Sandrone is a dried dark cherry element that combines with dried roses, and a long, fresh finish. 2017 is a powerhouse! This could be labeled as a cru from Serralunga it has so much intensity. A great wine for the cellar.

One of the last places people think of when the words "Cabernet Sauvignon" are used is Sardinia. Sella & Mosca has been making some of the greatest wines in Italy, and in Sardinia for over a century. They focus on the local varieties of Vermentino and Canonau (grenache). However, one thing they did decades ago is plant Cabernet on a plot that has turned into a treasure in the region of Alghero in Sardinia. The Marchese di Villamarina is like well structured Bordeaux from St. Estephe, but harkens back to the 80s when the wines had power. This 2014 is a drinker and a wine for the cellar. It has rich, powerful fruit, with dried savory herbs, and a punch of vanilla from the oak. This is a find!

It isn't often when a new winery starts in a location that is known for tradition, let alone begin and rise to the top of the ranks - such is the story of Siro Pacenti. In 1970 Siro purchased property north of the town of Montalcino, in Pelagrilli. Here he planted vineyards on the clay soils facing north to the town of Sienna. However, as an individual in pursuit of excellence, the first wines weren't bottled until 1988, which gave time for the vines to reach a maturity level worthy of Brunello. Siro's son, Giancarlo, had taken over the day-to-day at the property and he bottled both Rosso and Brunello di Montalcino. 

In the early nineties, they added a new gem to the property from the town of Piancornello. This new gem was vineyards south of the hill of Montalcino. These vineyards are planted to mineral-rich soil with a base of marine layers. The appellation of Brunello di Montalcino is a mosaic of soils, which range from clay, sand, schist, mineral, and marine. Much of the house styles of wineries are based on where their vineyards are planted. The flavor and textures of the final wines showcase the vineyards they are planted on. In the case of Siro Pacenti, it gave them the next flavor component to blend for their wines so they could mix power and elegance.  

There are two main bottlings for their Brunello's. The first is the Pelagrilli. This wine is made from their "younger" vines, which happen to be at least 25 years of age. The second is the "Vecchie Vigne", which is made from vines 35 years of age and older. They also produce a Rosso di Montalcino that they make from their younger vines that are 25 years and under. Unlike many wineries in the area, Siro Pacenti uses the same vineyards for their Rosso as they do their Brunello. 

In a rare occurrence, the winery has released a vertical of past vintages of their Vecchie Vigne, so we are offering this to you. For our Friday Five, we are doing a Friday Five +1. This six-pack is the '12, '13, '15, and '16 of the Vecchie Vigne, as well as the '16 Pelagrilli. To boot, we thought we would add the Rosso to Montalcino from 2019 to have a wine to drink while you watch these babies grow up. There are only four of these available, so act fast. They don't make a lot of wine, and they hold even less of the back vintages. Ciao!
