Tasting Notes

'The 2016 Barolo Roncaglie is fabulous, especially considering Roncaglie is not exactly one of La Morra's top sites. Fresh, vibrant and wonderfully nuanced, the 2016 pulses with real energy and class. For this wine, Stefano Corino leaves more leaf cover in the summer, does a cold soak after harvest and works with a mix of French oak barriques and larger tonneaux, all departures from the approach taken by his father, Renato, with the other wines in the range. The Roncaglie, made from a parcel previously went into the straight Barolo, is an experimental bottling that spent two years in oak with no racking.' 92 points Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com.

More Info

While this Barolo isn't for purists, who favour mouth-puckering tannins and wince-inducing sour cherry fruit, it's an absolute explosion of hedonistic pleasure that fills every nook and cranny in your mouth. Sweet, woody notes from the tight-grained French oak weave seamlessly with the concentrated Nebbiolo fruit, with its fleshy plum and red cherry notes. It's sexy and seductive and unequivocally enjoyable for drinking now and over the next 8 years.
