Winemaker Notes

Ruby red of medium intensity and garnet red hues. Aromas are intense, harmonic, with ethereal and captivating nuances and a final note of red fruit. Warm, balanced, with good persistence; already drinking well. Finishes with polished tannins and a delicate vanilla aftertaste. It is particularly enjoyable to savor its initial freshness and then appreciate the evolution of its aromas as the wine slowly warms in the glass.

Critical Acclaim

RP93 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Mauro Veglio has produced a focused and beautiful wine in this balanced vintage. The 2016 Barolo is a youthful and tightly wound expression that will slowly unravel and soften with time. I'd give it another five years in the bottle. The bouquet is squarely focused on Nebbiolo, with lovely berry, wild violets, tar, asphalt and licorice. The wine is elegant and tight, with fine and polished tannins. This classic Barolo represents a blend of fruit from some of the younger vines planted across three cru sites: Arborina and Gattera in La Morra and Castelletto in Monforte d'Alba. Fruit is harvested at different times and fermented separately, with short maceration times of up to 12 days on the skins. Aging takes the wine through 24 months in barrique, 80% of which is neutral wood. Rating : 93+

Red-berry, dogrose and grilled herb aromas mingle together in the glass along with a whiff of eucalyptus. On the smooth full-bodied palate, notes of licorice and vanilla accent a core of ripe black cherry. Polished, enveloping tannins provide smooth support. Drink through 2028.
