2008s from Produttori del Barbaresco

Hello friends. As you know, we’ve mostly tried to avoid long-term pre-orders for our international wines. However, there are some wines where a long-term pre-order is the only way to source them, and that’s the case today.

First, some notes on logistics:
1. We should be able to send allocation notices around mid-February.
2. I don’t expect the wine to arrive at the warehouse until mid-May.
3. As usual, we will not charge for the wine until it has arrived in the warehouse.
4. One advantage to pre-ordering is that we can lock in pretty competitive pricing.

I’ll turn to Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate) to help explain why these bottles are in high enough demand that a long-term pre-order is required: “[TEXT WITHHELD].”

Yikes.

That text, and the accompanying reviews, published in October, set off a feeding frenzy that hasn’t abated since. I feel fortunate that we have a chance to access these beautiful wines. Allocations will be tiny, but we have to start somewhere, right?
