An under the radar gem, the 2016 Barolo is a gorgeous wine and also a terrific value in high-end, artisan wine. Bright, translucent and super-expressive, the 2016 can be enjoyed now, although it will be even better in a few years’ time. Bright red berry fruit, blood orange, white pepper, mint, licorice and cinnamon give this super-classic Barolo so much appeal. Vibrant chalky, minerally notes are laced into the taut, nervy finish. Impressive.
