Vite Colte is an insanely beautiful wine. With a breathtaking bouquet of generous fruit with an everlasting finish, this Barbaresco easily competes with its world-famous neighbors and does so without the $200 price tag of Gaja, Conterno, and Giacosa.

Without giving up any of its traditional Barbaresco styling, or the structure to age for decades, Vite Colte is a Barbaresco for the masses!

About the wine

Winemaker Bruno Codero is a rising star in Piedmont, and his Spezie Barbaresco is a young champion. Sourced from high elevation vineyards in the epicenter of Italy’s Nebbiolo country, Vite Colte’s Barbaresco benefits from clay soils swirled with ancient fossils. Combining a hands-on approach in the vineyard with epic terroir, Codero and locals growers’ devotion is palpable.

This Riserva is singing now. A lively combination of bright fruit, plus delicate florals mingle with complexity only age can bring. After ten years, this Barbaresco is an unbeatable deal and ready to rock.

4.1 Vivino Users

"This was a great wine at a great price. Riserva Barabaresco for $50 is a great deal, especially when it’s 10 years old" - Kevin S.

"My goodness! Make a point to give it 30-1h of decanting time. Delicious." - Al C.

95 pts, Alex Casella, WSET Advanced

"This has a gorgeous ruby rose color with some hints of amber. Flaunting lots of red fruit character, red flowers, leather, anise, mint, iron and stony mineral on the nose. All backed by blackberry, spice, flowers and ground spice and minerals. Finishing with a delightful acidic palate that cleanses the tongue leaving a savory fruit flavor and mouthwatering for more. The tannins are softening here now but give this a 2-3 years for more a more pleasurable experience.  Pair with Lamb, Goat, Roasted Game Birds, and Pasta with Porcini and Truffles."

93 pts, James Suckling

"What a pretty wine now with almond, dark berry, spice and cedar character. Full body, fine tannins and a beautiful finish. Drink or hold."

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.


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 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.
