Negretti Barolo Bricco Ambrogio 2016
Nebbiolo | Italy
Incredible deal! This hits ALL the northern Italian, Piemontese world-class red wine buttons: outstanding 2016 vintage (rated 98 points by the Wine Spectator and Vinous), sourced from THE single cru of Roddi in La Morra, and of course the high-level winemaking at Negretti! A wine for the ages too, so make sure you bury a few in the cellar -- it will improve for decades!!
THIS PRICE! Amazing. And the wine? SOARING, medium-bodied and just percolating with cherries, roses, torrefaction (roasting coffee beans), cedar wood, tobacco and black tea notes, with a warm core and a silky mouthfeel, despite its structured power. Keeps on changing and showing different sides in the glass...just so compelling. It is a JOY to drink Barolo, one of this planet’s most kingly wines, at anything close to this price. WOW!
Grab a wine of legendary status today for a SONG! While it lasts...!
About the Producer
Since 2002, Brothers Massimo and Ezio Negretti own prime stretches of vineyard in Roddi, La Morra and Monforte, and make powerful, classically-styled, ageable wines from their winery near La Morra. As young as this dynamic, enterprising venture may be however, the past has not been forgotten in the traditions handed down from great grandparents, who were wine growers and producers way back at the beginning of the last century.
