Few would dispute that, in terms of prestige, Barolo sits at the top the hierarchy of Italian wines. In the hills around the villages of Barolo, La Morra, Castiglione Falletto, Serrralunga D'Alba.

Marquis always carries a wide selection of Barolos, including some available nowhere else in British Columbia.

Chiara Boschis 2017 Barolo "Via Nuova" 750ml

$125.99

The 2017 Barolo Via Nuova is stellar. In 2017, the Via Nuova is a bit nervous, the sign of a Barolo that is going to need a number of years to unwind. Bright red-toned fruit, chalk, crushed rocks, mint and white pepper add pretty aromatic top notes. As...
