With one of the country’s largest Italian wine collections, this classic spot constantly introduces new producers and lesser-known regions, while de-cellaring older Barolo vintages. The team also opened Chow Morso Osteria, a casual option, in downtown Denver, last September.
From The Sommelier: “Nebbiolo is more popular than ever! Yet, the Etna wines of Sicily seem to have lots of our viewers’ attention. Our guests seem to be more interested in this floral, lighter weight and ethereal wine style at the moment, moreso than the black, opaque, dense style of wines. Nebbiolo continues to captivate our guests as they continuously ask us to bring to their attention new producers, vineyards, and expose them to more of Piemonte. The Alto Piemonte is having a renaissance and the wines are being received quite well for an alternative to the wines from within the Langhe itself.” —Ryan Fletter, Barolo Grill
