4 VINTAGES

PIEDMONT

MARCO & VITTORIO ADRIANO BASARIN

BARBARESCO 2012

DOCG

Crafted from Nebbiolo, the grape also respon-

sible for Barolo, Barbaresco is typically the

more floral and less tannic of these two noble

Piedmont wines. This one is elegant, intense

and structured, with strawberry, cherry and the

characteristic lifted floral tones.

GIACOSA BUSSIA BAROLO 2011

DOCG

For many, Barolo is not only the greatest Italian

wine but also the greatest wine – period. It’s

often compared to Burgundy’s Pinot Noir for its

complexity and ethereal ability to be both lithe

and firm, delicate and powerful.

FONTANAFREDDA BAROLO RISERVA 2007

DOCG

Barolo is famously ageable, and the best ex-

amples can take nearly a decade after harvest

before they’re ready to be enjoyed – and will

delight for years yet. Black fruit, spice and smoke

in a remarkably elegant package with a lean, taut

mouthfeel.
