Costa Quaglia, Terre Alfieri, Marchesi Alfieri, 2016

£28.00

VERY LIMITED - Reviewed 18.5/20 from Matthew Jukes on the Money-Week, 18th December 2020.

"This is one of the standout wines of the year [...] It left me dumbfounded.  The blackberry, black cherry and rose petal notes are sublime and the pliant, generous texture is pure heaven.  It is aged for 15 months in 500 litre and 2-year-old Allier barriques and this careful selection of both feisty and mellow oak is the reason why this sumptuous Nebbiolo is so decadent and also so refined.  Only 2500 - 3000 bottles are made each year.  I venture that if you are lucky enough to taste this wine you will do anything you can to secure an allocation.  If you are served it blind, I would bet that you stick a sky-high price tag on its flavour!

Marchesi Alfieri

Piemonte via Toscana? Well, in this case, yes. For Alfieri’s winemaker Mario Olivero has a holiday apartment in the picturesque village of Sant’Angelo in Colle, Montalcino. There, he met Giugi Sesti, and the pair got along famously. So, when Giugi suggested we visit Mario on our next trip, who were we to argue?
