The 2016 Barolo San Giuseppe is a very pretty, ethereal wine. Sweet red berry fruit, flowers, mint, cinnamon and pine give the 2016 a striking upper register. Bright and translucent in the glass, with lovely depth, the 2016 is classic in bearing but also has enough fruit and mid-palate pliancy to avoid being overly austere for a young Barolo. The San Giuseppe saw 20 days on the skins and spent two years in 25hL casks followed by a year in cement.
