Barolo DOCG for under $40? Unheard of? Well, you better believe it, because we have one right here and the wine is bloody delicious too.
Made from Nebbiolo grapes, this magnificent red, known as “the king
of wines and the wine of kings" is a showpiece of Piedmontese wine-making. A wine
for big occasions, it charms and win over the palate with its power and body, leaving
a lovely sensation of warmth. Garnet red with orange highlights, it has an intense,
ethereal, characteristic bouquet together with a full-bodied dry taste which is rich,
smooth and well-balanced. A superior wine, at its very best with roasts and game.

Describing the house of Roberto Sarotto in his 2017 Guide Book:
"Of supreme analytical and sensory quality in more than one realisation. Not least the classics (Single Vineyard Barolo and Barbaresco) whose level of spicy fruit of blackberry, vanilla and purple has evoked the one and only wines of Angelo Gaja, and his 1982 Barbaresco Sori San Lorenzo and Sori Tildin. Together with the 2013 Barolo, these wines are certainly at the top of these pre-eminent categories.'
