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. Monforte D'Alba and a handful of others, the Nebbiolo grape reaches its zenith, producing rich, intense, long-lived red wines. Marquis always carries a wide selection of Barolos, including some available nowhere else in British Columbia.

Gaja 2015 Conteisa Barolo 750ml

$482.52

The 2015 Barolo Conteisa is a heady, exotic wine, and also one of the most complete, alluring Conteisas I have ever tasted. Conteisa is usually a wine of grace and understatement. The 2015, on the other hand, is a bold, sweeping Barolo that saturates the...

Azelia 2011/2013 Barolo San Rocco DOCG 750ml

$143.39

"As it usually is, the 2011 Barolo San Rocco is the darkest and richest of the Azelia Barolos, but it too is quite polished in this vintage. Dark red cherries, licorice, spices and new leather flesh out in a Barolo that shows the depth of Serralunga, but...

Burlotto 2015/2016 Barolo 750ml

$91.21

This estate captures the very essence of Barolo from Verduno, that, to my palate, also shows a hint of wildness or maybe some exotic character. Winemaking at Comm. G.B. Burlotto is traditional, and for this reason, those territory-specific aromas are...

Negretti 2014 Barolo "Bricco Ambrogio" 750ml
