2016 Castello di Verduno Barolo DOCG 750 ml

Availability: In stock (17)

A brilliant example of what I consider to be a classic Barolo vintage. Old-school winemaking, organic viticulture and a near-perfect growing season gives this wine a slightly softer, but not understated nose. Elegant and lithe, 35 days on the skins and matured in neutral large format Slovenian oak Botti Grandi. These will drink well now, but will improve for 5-7 years — maybe longer! My bet: STOCK UP on 2016 Barolo…

93 Points - "The 2016 Barolo is a pretty and accessible mid-weight Barolo that will drink well with minimal cellaring. Sweet pipe tobacco, cedar, mint, dried flowers and crushed berries are all nicely laced together. Understated and gracious, the 2016 offers considerable appeal. Sweet floral and spice notes linger on the expansive, layered finish. This is very nicely done, especially within its peer group." - Antonio Galloni (Vinous Media, Feb 2020)
