2015 Paolo Scavino * Barolo Bricco Ambrogio
Plenty of burnt oranges and lemons, wild strawberries, cedar and spices. The palate is muscular and powerful, veiled in a sheen of grainy and chewy tannins that surround layers of vibrant red fruit.
2015 Luigi Pira * Barolo Marenca
The 2015 Barolo Marenca is once again a wine of texture and volume, as it so often is, but there is also terrific aromatic nuance and layers of complexity to balance things out. Rose petal, sage, mint, sweet tobacco, licorice and wild cherry all run through this ample, super-inviting Serralunga Barolo. When I choose to drink a Pira Barolo, it is almost always Marenca. The 2015 is simply gorgeous. That’s all there is to it.
2015 Paolo Conterno * Barolo Ginestra
The 2015 Barolo Ginestra shows real complexity and depth. It exudes a profound nature in general. Mineral tones lead the clean, fresh entry, followed by more savory notes. This is from Paolo Conterno’s home vineyard cru, with vines planted right up to the edges of the winery and the family house. This Barolo is nuanced and multifaceted, and it will stand up to a couple of decades in the cellar.
2015 Luigi Pira * Barolo Vigna Rionda
Barolo Vigna Rionda (aged in 100% new French oak) opens with captivating aromatics that lead to a silky-textured palate of ripe red fruit. This medium to full-bodied Barolo offers exquisite purity and delineation with finessed tannins and an extraordinary sense of harmony. It shuts down quickly in the glass and will require patience, but this is a stunningly pure Rionda in the making. Amazing!
