The Palladino 2016 Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba sees fruit sourced from various sites in the greater comune, or village, of Serralunga d'Alba, known for some of the most robust and power expressions of Nebbiolo in the appellation. That fruit is presented in an expansive, broad-knit capacity, starting with blackberry and dried flower aromas. Those tones grow in intensity and shift to moist earth and leather. Thanks to that savory profile, this Barolo delivers an open and generous disposition from the start.
