A word from world renowned Barbaresco producer; Giorgio Pelissero, the Prince of Nebbiolo!
The CB Reserve Program is a quarterly wine delivery service showcasing the best in vintage and library wines from some of the world’s top wine producers.
The next Edition:
Our next CB Reserve edition features Large Format Barbaresco! 3 giant bottles of fantastic Barbaresco from one of our favourite producers; Pelissero! All three of these bottles are Nebbiolos from Pelissero, all from the banner year of 2016, one of the best in recent memory with a long and even growing season that promises balanced and nuanced wines. Each of these are wonderful in their own right with enough differences to allow for a crazy horizontal tasting if you know enough people to open 9.5 Liters of wine at once!
1 x 5 L bottle of 2016 Tulin Barbaresco:
The largest bottle (5 Litres!) it is the most approachable, a soft and barely oak influenced wine aged for 20 months in older barrels, with velvety texture, perfect for red sauce pasta and grilled meats.
1 x Double Magnum (3 L bottle) of 2016 Nubiola Barbaresco:
This 3L Nubiola is the ripest, a newer blend of very small parcels with the brightest red fruit expression: a perfect after-dinner wine.
1 x Magnum (1.5 L bottle) of 2016 Vanotu Barbaresco:
In the magnum format, we have the Vanotu, the densest, and most ageable of the three wines, a rich and complex expression of Nebbiolo aged for 22 months in mostly new barrels.
Cellering and aging: All of these wines are fantastic now but will cellar happily until 2040!
The Details: Your package includes 3 huge bottles of wine: 1 x 5 L bottle of 2016 Tulin Barbaresco 1 x Double Magnum (3 L bottle) of 2016 Nubiola Barbaresco 1 x Magnum (1.5 L bottle) of 2016 Vanotu Barbaresco. Delivery will be November 2021 just in time for the HOLIDAYS!
