    Top 100 Wine of 2018, #54 Rank - Wine Spectator

    93pts Wine Spectator

    Founded in 1958 by Arnaldo Rivera, the Terre del Barolo winery has come a long way. It's now crafting delicious, notable Barolos that are garnering international attention, and making Wine Spectator's Top 100 list. As with all Barolos, you'll want to give this one some time in your cellar or cabinet. Your patience will be richly rewarded when the time does come to savor it. We recommend decanting at least two hours before drinking, and then let the dining begin! The lovely layers of this Undicicomuni have us yearning for some of our favorite Italian cuisine. A long-braised Osso Buco is perfect for the beautiful balance of this Piedmontese red. Not in the mood for meat? Make nona's eggplant parmesan recipe. Or try a Peposo, a traditional Tuscan black pepper beef stew. You won't want the meal to end there, so have another bottle and chunks of Pecorino vecchio on hand to extend the delight.

    Wine Spectator: Designated Top 100 Wine of 2018, #54 Rank. "The sweet fruit and solid structure play off each other as this evolves. Starts with floral, cherry, strawberry and licorice flavors, melding into the firm, resonant tannins as the finish extends. Complex, balanced and set for a long life. Best from 2022 through 2036. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 4,150 cases made." Nov 2018 (Advance)
