From a tiny section of vines planted in the 1940s, the Fantino brothers coax life into a wine that’s the definition of Barolo--earthy, pungent, and driven by vibrant tannins. Aromas of ripe cherry, plum, and crushed roses lead into a palate that will transport you to Piedmont and have you begging for a hearty ragu!

Though wines from the tiny subregion of Bussia are known for being fresh and approachable, this rose-hued Barolo is well-structured and will continue to age beautifully for the next several years. A vast cornucopia of flavor, the Fantino bursts with cherry, anise, crushed red flowers and fresh plum atop powerful tannins that prove this wine has so much life left to live!

About the wine

The Fantino brothers have made their name synonymous with delightful, engaging Piedmontese wines, and this ‘07 Barolo keeps the tradition going strong!

Brothers Alessandro and Gian Natale Fantino put their hands, hearts, and soul into these Barolo vineyards--literally. Together, the two farm some of the oldest vineyards in the region coaxing wines of incredible complexity and classic styling from the Bussia Cru of Barolo. This rare 2007 release is one that won’t come again, making these bottles to scoop up now!

Reviews

95 pts - Alex Casella, WSET Advanced  

"Gorgeous rustic ruby color with a classic Nebbiolo nose of beautiful sweet red and black fruit, iron, leather, flowers, spice, anise, tobacco and mint. Fleshy, dry, spicy and flat out fantastic.  Such a tremendous value here displaying the vintage and qualify of Barolo. This meets some new world fruit forward berry flavors an texture, however still displays the unique terroir of Barolo parading the old-world nuance of Piemonte. Pair with pasta and truffles, grilled goat chops with mushroom demi, porcini risotto. Drink now or over the next decade."

TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING OVERVIEW

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:


  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


SHIPPING SCHEDULES FOR TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPMENTS

All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.


Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.


If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


TRACKING INFORMATION

Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.


You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.


Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.


KEY ADVANTAGES OF TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING

  • Your wine can be protected from environmental damage for the entirety of its journey
  • This service is provided to you at no additional cost
