An under the radar producer, Vite Colte may be the greatest $25 Barolo that most people have never heard of. Being under the radar keeps prices down, which explains why you can even get a 92-point Barolo for under $25! Reminiscent of Burgundy, the commune of Barolo is comprised of many small family-owned vineyards with an obsession to produce the finest quality wines. Paesi Tuoi is a traditional Barolo, blending several CRU vineyards, boasting classic aromas of red berry, clove and dried sage lead the nose along with a whiff of espresso. The medium-bodied palate doles out red raspberry, cranberry and coffee bean while firm tannins lead to a tight, medium-bodied finish. While James Suckling says drink now, the window here extends through 2031! Due Bicchieri from Gambero Rosso, don't miss one the best values in Italian wines!
"Aromas of spicy red fruit, dried citrus rind and oyster shell follow though to a medium-bodied palate with firm but not chewy tannins. The flavors remain bright and focused through the finish. Vegan. Drink or hold." James Suckling, 92 Points
