    Barolo, known as the “Wine of Kings” is a fine Italian red wine produced in Piemonte, north-west Italy.  The region’s signature grape variety, Nebbiolo, is the sole variety permitted for the wine which takes the village’s name, Barolo. Nebbiolo is an exceptionally finicky variety to grow and like Pinot Noir, Nebbiolo takes on qualities and features from the soil and climate.  Fragrant, complex and powerful Barolo is so revered that it was one of just three wines awarded DOCG status when the quality classification was introduced in 1980.  This wonderful example of Barolo from the Corino estate, is made using grapes from prime sites from the commune of La Morra.  Giuliano Corino, the present owner, produces modern-styled Barolo which is ready to drink sooner and is less austere than the traditional Barolos that need decades to soften.

    This wine is bright garnet in colour. It has delicate aromas of red cherries, liquorice with a hint of smokiness. The palate is intense showing notes of dried raspberry jam, mint, cedar and tobacco.

    Taste Profile of this Wine

    The Winecroft Wine Style Meter is a key tool to match you with the wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test.

    The needle shows the style of the wine:

    • Light: These are delicate wines which are easy to drink.  Whites will be dry, crisp and zesty.  Reds will be paler in colour with lighter tannins (tannins create a drying sensation in your mouth).
    • Medium-bodied: These wines offer up loads of fruit flavours with a balance of zesty acidity and tannins (in the reds).
    • Full-bodied: Red will be bigger, bolder and have higher levels of tannin. Whites will be rich and creamy,

    The Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine based on your personal wine profile.

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

    The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:

    Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.

     

    Wines each month

    Each month we will recommend 4 superb new wines to try, individually matched to your latest taste profile. As a new Winecroft member, you will receive these 4 wines, delivered to your door.  In subsequent months, you will have full control over the wines you receive. You may find your wine preferences evolve over time, you would prefer more red than white, or you decide last month’s recommended wines weren’t quite right for you. In which case, you can update your taste profile and change or add to the recommended wines each month. And if you enjoyed one of the bottles so much, you can always order more.  You may, on the other hand, find you are just too busy to think about it, in which case you can opt to receive the wines hand-picked for your profile.

    The one thing that won’t change is that our members will always be drinking top-end wines that are on wine lists of the world’s best restaurants, for typically less than a third of the price.

    (Quick note – for new members who have just made your first order, when you look at your order details you will see next month’s recommendation.  Initially, this will contain the same wines as your first order but don’t worry, the Winecroft team will be working behind the scenes to quickly update this with 4 great new recommended wines based on your profile.)
