"Having now tasted a reasonable number of Barolo from 2015, I feel a little more confident about affirming its high quality. Perhaps not the most long lived vintage, but good tannin, approachable supple nature, and surprising freshness.


 

Red cherry, strawberry, aniseed, fair old perfume, light dusting of spice and flowers. Medium-bodied, deft, fresh strawberry, brightness and energy here, with fine almost silky tannin that’s very persistent, super length and a wonderful sense of composure and class throughout. Sneaking a second glass and coming back, it looks even better again, with a mineral and tea thing happening. Wonderful."

"Two months' maceration in tronconic steel tanks. Highest vineyard in Barolo at 480 m. 
Seductive sweetness of red fruits with a note of olives. Dry tannic finesse with succulent fruit, much more juicy than I expected. Very young still but delicious with bite and persistence. Very fresh."
