FANTASTIC Deal on 90+ point Barolo Boxed Set

It’s hard to believe, but Christmas is less than a week away!! I have enough specialty wines that I’ve been building up over the last year that I need at least a month to blog ’em all out to you, but with the Holiday (and a potential snow event) fast approaching, I’m going to have to save some of ’em for after the New Year. So in the interim…let’s hit some highlights!

Now this definitely counts as a highlight! Where else can you get a mixed six-pack of 90+ point Barolo wines for just a hair over $200? Nowhere I know of! And that’s why you love your Rockbridge Hy-Vee…we love tracking stuff like this down! So here’s the skinny…this is a mixed six-pack of bottles (two bottles each of three different types). Each bottle has an MSRP of $60, but as priced in this package they’re closer to $35 each! AND they’re all rated 90 points or better with Wine Enthusiast. Check it out!

2015 Vite Colte “Essenze” Barolo (Monforte d’Alba)-“Aromas of camphor, leather and black-skinned berry emerge from the glass. The savory, full-bodied palate offers ripe blackberry, star anise and mocha alongside fine-grained tannins. Drink 2023–2030.” 91pts

2017 Vite Colte “Essenze” Barolo-“Underbrush, black-skinned berry and spice aromas waft out of the glass. The tightly wound palate offers sour cherry, star anise and black pepper alongside close-grained tannins. Drink 2024–2033.” 90pts

2015 Vite Colte “Essenze” Barolo (Serralunga d’Alba)-“Violet, underbrush and cedar aromas shape the nose. Elegantly structured, the juicy palate offers cranberry jam, crushed mint and licorice alongside firm, polished tannins. Drink 2023–2030.” 91pts

So how’s that for a deal?? These come in a beautiful wooden box with a sliding (stained) wooden top and would make a beautiful gift for the Italian wine-lover in on your list (or for yourself!). Vite Colte’s “Essenze” Barolo wines typically score 90+ (usually with James Suckling), but I was stoked to see Wine Enthusiast enthusiastically embracing all three of these wines this go-round!

This was a pre-order, super-limited opportunity, and we only received two six-packs!

$204.99/6pk with wooden box
