2011 Vino Rosso “Laboro Disobedient”

A. & G. Fantino

2011 Vino Rosso “Laboro Disobedient” A. & G. Fantino - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
The Fantino brothers are back at it with only the third-ever release of their superb Laboro bottling, an intentionally declassified Barolo crafted according to near-extinct winemaking methods. No stainless steel, no new wood, no pumping, no filtration, no added yeast or enzymes... all you’ll find is sustainably farmed, old-vine Nebbiolo from one of Monforte d’Alba’s top sites, fermented and aged in traditional old oak casks, and bottled by gravity with minimal sulfur added. Truffles, luscious dark fruit, and intoxicating spices preface this regal Nebbiolo that is so plush and cushiony you can start drinking today, pleasure guaranteed.

About Piedmont

Kermit’s love affair with the great reds of Piemonte dates back to the early days of his career: the very first container he imported from Italy, in fact, featured legendary 1971 and 1974 Barolos from Vietti and Aldo Conterno. Regular visits since then have seen our portfolio grow to now nine Piemontesi estates, with a strong focus on the rolling hills of the Langhe.

Nebbiolo rules these majestic, vine-covered marl slopes, giving Italy’s most mystifyingly complex, nuanced, and age-worthy reds. When crafted via traditional production methods—long macerations and extensive aging in enormous oak botti—the powerful, yet incredibly refined Barolos and Barbarescos provide haunting aromatics of tar, raspberry, incense, tea, roses, and more. At times austere in their youth but well worth the wait, they pair beautifully with the hearty local cuisine starring veal in many forms, braised beef, pastas like tajarin and agnolotti, and of course, Alba’s famous white truffles.

Surrounded by mountains on three sides, Piemonte’s climate is continental, with baking hot summers and cold winters. Nebbiolo is only part of the story here: juicy, fruity Barberas and Dolcettos represent the bread and butter throughout the region, and other native grapes like Freisa, Croatina, and the white Arneis are also noteworthy. Value abounds in the Monferrato, while Alto Piemonte also has its share of thrills to provide.

Every corner of Piemonte is rich with tradition, especially when wine is concerned. It’s no wonder we have been singing the region’s praises for over forty years.

For the wines that I buy I insist that the winemaker leave them whole, intact. I go into the cellars now and select specific barrels or cuvées, and I request that they be bottled without stripping them with filters or other devices. This means that many of our wines will arrive with a smudge of sediment and will throw a more important deposit as time goes by, It also means the wine will taste better.
