Barolo and Barbaresco are really defined by their soils. The soil beneath Barbaresco vines is actually richer and the wines are correspondingly less tannic. So if you’re looking for a big tannic beast, you should be looking more for Barolo – something that you can put in the cellar for eons. Meanwhile, and certainly not without a good cellaring life also ahead of it, people drink Barbaresco. It’s got all the tar and roses, everything you’d want out of a Piedmont red, but it will just be more approachable in the meantime. Let it knock your socks off.

“Two brothers, both alike in dignity, at fair Domain Jaffelin where we lay our scene. From ancient grapes born of Chambolle Musigny, pinot stains make winemaking hands unclean.” We’re pretty sure old mate Will’s first draft was actually a story of 95 point Burgundy, but then his book editor got in his ear and was all like “add more sex appeal”. The tragedy. If Shakespeare had full creative license, the tale would’ve continued on a bit like this: “from forth the genius brains of these two bros, a handcrafted red comes to life; its elegance and purity of fruit doth show, a gold medal pinot cures all manner of strife”. The magic. The wordsmithery. The wine.

“San Vicente are a family producer and have been making wine since the early 1800s. They’re into their 5th generation now so they know what they’re doing. There are wild raspberries and blackberries, and now it has been opened for a while it’s full of cinnamon and sandalwood and there’s tobacco and dark chocolate – this is just sexy wine. It’s really sexy wine.” – Min, Mofo Wine Broker. “This is important: it has 99 points. So overall it has been given 96, 98 and 99 points. It’s a full-bodied wine, so anybody who enjoys grenache and shiraz will do well. Have it with some lamb, with lots of garlic and rosemary and you could even have it after dinner smoking your cigar. Do what you want. Get onto it.”

This tiny biodynamic producer is surely one of our top finds of 2017, sought after by those in the know and stumbled upon by the lucky. We count ourselves extremely lucky. Lovely, fresh and chewy sangiovese here, bright and full of berries (red and black), cherries and a touch of vanilla. Oh, and 2015 may be the best Rosso vintage in the last decade.

Red wine from the Rhône comin’ at ya, a brilliant blend from the Châteauneuf du Pape appellation to be precise. It’s packed with blackberry, blackcurrant, cherry and licorice, a medium to full-bodied wine that’s 75-25 grenache-syrah. It’s copped 91 points from both Wine Spectator and Vinous, 90 from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate and a 17/20 from Jancis Robinson, with Wine Advocate calling it “a screaming success in the vintage.” If you’ve wondered about getting into French wine, this is a kinda fancy way to start but hey, why not?

Spanish Import

This Spanish garnacha comes from the Rioja Alta, the highest subregion in Rioja. It sits about 300m higher than the neighbouring Rioja Baja, and the elevation and cooler temperatures lead to elegant red wines, like this tasty little vino rocking 96 points. Made from vines between 95 and 111-years-old, it’s a super fruity wine with cherries and strawberries at the forefront and, like most Riojas, has spent a fair chunk of time in French oak. It’s an import that’s not to be missed if you’re a fan of wines with a bit of Spanish flair.
