94 Wine Advocate (7/23/2020) "The Gianfranco Alessandria 2016 Barolo opens to tangy and spicy fruit aromas with accents of aniseed, dried licorice and cola. That part fruit intensity and part ethereal spice is the aromatic playlist of a classic Barolo such as this. The wine is fermented in stainless steel, with a short 10 days of skin contact. It later ages in 225-liter oak barrel, of which only 20% of the wood is new. The results are lightweight and buoyant, and the wine is strong on aromatic high tones with some mint and crushed stone. There is no residual heaviness on the nose or the palate, and that balanced acidity kicks in on the close. Drink Date: 2022 - 2038."
92+ Our Score (12/2020)
93 Vinous, Antonio Galloni (2/2020) "The 2016 Barolo is bright, floral and beautifully lifted. Crushed flowers, sweet red berry and mint all grace this subtle, nuanced Barolo. Medium in body, with lovely freshness and good depth, the 2016 has so much to offer. This is a very pretty, and refined straight Barolo. The 2016 has the potential to be a real overachiever. I especially like the wine's inner sweetness and perfume. Drinking Window: 2022 - 2034."

We are in Westridge Court, at the intersection of Rt. 59 and Aurora Avenue. Our center is on the east side of Rt. 59 on the part of the center that faces Aurora Avenue.

Our store is on Old Skokie Road which is the frontage road on the west side of Rt. 41. We are 400 yards south of Deerfield Rd/Central Avenue. If you know where Williams Ski & Patio or Rick's Auto Body are located, we're on the same street; just about a few hundred yards to the south. If you are not familiar with the area, best to use GPS or some online directions because our store is a bit tricky to find!

We're on Elston Avenue, just off of the Kennedy Expressway (I-90/94). Take the North Avenue exit and head east. Elston Avenue is the first stoplight that you'll come to. Turn left on Elston and drive for just over a quarter mile. We'll be on the left side of the road just after the rail overpass. Parking is on-street, right in front of the store!
