mint and sweet spices meld into an exotic melange of dark blue and purplish fruit. The 2011 is deep, resonant and beautifully layered to the core. Intense ruby red with purple hues. Notes of red berries, mint and vanilla. The bouquet is rich, aromatic and complex with a remarkable intensity and concentration. The wine is generous, voluptuous and full-bodied with a multidimensional structure, perfectly balanced between the fruit, acid and high quality oak with a persistent and silky long finish. This pairs well with meat dishes, roasts and aged cheeses.

We are excited to share our bounty of beautiful Barbera wines from Braida. This winery was founded over fifty years ago in Piedmont by Giacomo Bologna who realized the inherent potential of the Barbera grape. Up to that point, others were content to produce simple table wines, which lacked complexity or ageability. Controlling yields in the vineyard and employing strict winemaking practices in the cellar greatly improved the quality of the wine. Giacomo also began using French barriques to age his wine, which was a practice unknown at that time among Barbera winemakers.

Today, the third generation of the family continues their pursuit of elevating the Barbera grape to the status of noble grapes, which is normally reserved for other international varieties. Their efforts have paid off and are apparent in every sip you take. These are fantastic wines of purity and depth.

With strict attention to detail, Braida produces exceptional wines. The Bricco Dell'Uccellone and Ai Suma bottlings are serious wines, which demonstrate the heights which the Barbera grape can attain. The quality is outstanding with a textural mouth feel which is polished from start to finish.

Ratings from these trio of wines have not yet been released, but prior vintages have received outstanding scores from Robert Parker, Wine Spectator and other critics. They have also received the coveted Tre Bicchieri (Three Glasses) awarded by the influential Italian food and wine magazine, Gambero Rosso. Based on our tastings of these delicious wines, we expect excellent reviews again. Bravissimo to Braida!

mixed wild berries (blueberry, loganberry, raspberry) sending shoots of sweetness that are checked by excellent levels of tannin and acidity. Very harmonious, balanced wine. The mid-palate continues with mixed fruits and spices, sweetness tempered by structure, adding a touch of smoke, as the finish of berry fruits lasts and lasts.

Carlin de Paolo wines are four generations of grape growing and winemaking by the Ponte family of Piemonte. Jeancarlo and David, two brothers and the current winemakers, learned the trade from their father Franco, who learned it from his father Carlin, who learned from his father, Paolo, the man who started it all.

In the early 1910s Paolo, at the time a recently married young man, planted his first vines in the rolling hills of Asti, just before WWI. He had always dreamed of growing grapes and his dream was finally happening. Unfortunately for Paolo the war began and the Germans rolled their tanks through those hills and decimated his vines. But luckily his young family survived and he was able to plant again.

All seemed to be going well for a couple of decades. Paolo's estate began to grow in acreage and his young family was growing as well. His son Carlin was grown, now helping his father in the vineyards and starting a family of his own. But fate was not on the Ponte's side as WWII broke out and the Germans, yet again, rolled through the hills of Piemonte, destroying their land.

The family forged on and, once the smoke had cleared, put all of their money back into the land. Paolo, now an older man, continued to work the vines with his son Carlin, and now grandson Franco. And as they say, the third time's the charm. There was no WWIII so the Ponte estate grew and grew, and today they have acreage through Asti, Alba, Barolo and Barbaresco.

As an homage to their great-grandfather's unyielding spirit, Jeancarlo and David have depicted Paolo on the front of every bottle of their family's wines. In his ripped trousers and worn-in hat, Paolo marches through the grey muck of life with a clenched fist and open heart, resulting in the beautiful red soil of his land behind him.

ripeness and maturity in the finished wine. It is nothing short of a miracle that these vines, planted by Robertís grandfather almost 60 years ago, have not been grubbed up and replanted to Nebbiolo.

The wine is fermented in stainless steel then aged in a mixture of barrique and tonneaux for a total of 12 months. The wine is full of exuberant red fruit. Fresh raspberries and chocolate covered bing cherries harmoniously mingle with a slight vanilla spice of oak and the flowery freshness we expect from Barbera.

1913 marked the inaugural vintage for Luigi Minuto thus forming Cascina Luisin. This set up the Minuto family to become one of the oldest wine making families in Barbaresco. Not only are they one of the oldest, but they were the first to bottle and sell wine on a commercial level in the early 1930s. It is important to remember that unlike other regions in Italy, Piedmont has a very short history with quality wine making. Post WWII gave rise to the quality we have come to expect from the Barbaresco and Barolo. The names Minuto and Gaja are the first brought up when discussing the historical producers who paved the way.

Today Luigiís great grandson, Luigi, who is now in his 70ís continues on the family winemaking tradition with his son Roberto. Roberto is 7th generation to make wine, the 4th to live under the same roof to which the winery is attached by a small patio that looks out over the Rabajŗ vineyard. The family philosophy is meticulous vineyard care and they hold great respect for upholding traditional winemaking practices in the winery.

The wines of Cascina Luisin are well known for their accessibility in their youth with great core fruit that holds up well and evolves with age.

The wine we're about to tell you about, which is an incredible Barbera from Monferrato in Piemonte, one that you'll probably see many of the staff taking home, came to be through the Read More...
machinations of a couple of guys who first and foremost were fascinated by Friuli. We'll come back to this amazing Barbera in a couple paragraphs-- first, we have to tell you about Bobby and Lachlan and their Friulian adventures...

You would be hard pressed to find two people more Friuli-obsessed than Bobby Stuckey and Lachlan Patterson. Even within Friuli their true passion for the region elicits some curious head scratching and warm Italian chuckles from the humble wine-makers and restaurateurs. Tuscany, sure. Rome, of course. But to be a complete Friuliophile?

Yet that is a title they both wear proudly. After working together at The French Laundry, Bobby as a Master Sommelier and Lachlan as a chef de partie, they moved to Boulder Colorado with the dream of opening a neighborhood restaurant. One fateful trip to Friuli, complete with carsickness from the winding roads of the Alps, traditional Friulian fare, and lots and lots of amazing local wine was enough to seal their fate. They came back to Boulder and opened Frasca Food and Wine, a restaurant dedicated to the cuisine and culture of Friuli. Always digging deeper for Friulian inspiration, Bobby and Lachlan travel to the region several times a year, even taking their entire staff along for a week of eating, wine tasting and general Friuli-worship every summer.

It was only natural that when Bobby and Lachlan dreamt about starting their own wine label they looked first to the beautiful whites of Friuli, and Scarpetta was born.

Now-- back to this beautiful Barbera. They worked with Fabrizio Iuli in Monferrato, Piemonte, to create this wine. Monferrato is the birthplace for Barbera, and historically unlike the rest of Piedmonte, its top cuvees are frequently Barbera. Hence, for good reason, Barbera from Monferrato is celebrated for its balance of fruit, terroir and acidity. Which may explain why this Barbera was an easy choice for our Wine of the Month 2-- while we tasted a number of solid wines, this was the one that "wowed" us. The nose is full of concentrated, jammy fruits, like a reduction of berries, elevated with incense, cedar, spice, florals and red rose petal. The fruits remain in the mouth with more berries and cherries, a touch of red plum, excellent acidity and a bit of spice and earthy porcini. We loved it from the first scent, first sip through to the lengthy, fruity, spicy finish. Beautiful wine.
