4 bottle pack.
After the Barolo and Barbaresco packs flew out the door back in October, we've been on the hunt for some more stocks from the amazing Piemonte vintage. And we've done it!
2016 was a vintage that offered an almost perfect growing season to the winemakers of the Piemonte. No heat waves, frosts, or hailstorms. July and August had low humidity and temperatures that were above average. Occasional rains prevented heat stress. September's cooler evening temperatures provided ideal ripening conditions. The result is a vintage full of truly spectacular, breathtaking wines that capture all that joy and finesse that Barolo can give.
– Ettore Germano Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba 2016
This delivers a structured and powerful Baroli, thanks to the unique calcareous clay soils found here. You get dark fruit, spice, tar and lots of tangy liquorice or aniseed. (94/100 Monica Larner, Wine Advocate)
– Oddero Barolo 2016
Brilliant garnet-red color, with warmer tinges developing over time. Unmistakeable bouquet, very pleasant, intense yet ethereal, very persistent, at times spiced, with aromas of truffles, liquorice and dried flowers. Dry, with full tannins.
– Giacomo Fenocchio Barolo Bussia 2016
The colour is deep garnet red and the bouquet is pleasing, with intense scents of spiced rose and licorice. The flavour is dry, warm, full bodied and balanced with pronounced tannins and a persistent length. Can be drunk now, but a laying down for a while may help to soften it.
– Brezza Barolo Sarmassa 2016
Pronounced sour cherry nose. Full-bodied, with cherry, ripe dark berries and violets, with a gentle liquorice and clove in the background. Let this one breathe for a short while and it's ready to go!
