Like its Barbaresco cousin, Barolo is a true icon. Celebrated as a symbol of apex Italian wine, it's a region known for intense, unmistakable reds that has few peers around the world.
Lot 693 is the follow-up to its 2010 predecessor (Lot 593), and is another masterpiece with perfect winery-direct provenance from the same producer. The grapes undergo temperature-controlled fermentation for 20 days to enrich the wine with tannins that enable long term aging, followed by 5 years of large format cask-aging to obtain Riserva status (non-Riserva Barolo requires 3 years). 2011 was a warm vintage for Barolo’s Nebbiolo vineyards, producing wines that stylistically resemble a combination of the outstanding 2007s and 2009s. An exquisite wine that no one would blame you for drinking now, Lot 693 will obviously reward the patient (especially given its cask aging).
