Country: Italy

Region: Piemonte
Appellation: Barolo DOCG
Type: Red, dry
Grape variety: 100% Nebbiolo

Dark garnet red with beautiful reflections. Aromas of cherry, strawberry, eucalyptus, tobacco and spices. A wonderfully balanced wine of fruit, fine acidity and polished tannin. For us one of the best representatives of its vintage!

"This is a proprietary blend of Nebbiolo made by Pecchenino. The 2016 Barolo San Giuseppe is a blend of fruit from three crus. It breaks down as 35% from Le Coste di Monforte, 15% from Bussia and 50% from Ravera in Monforte. There is a sultry theme here (like we saw in the Barolo Bussia) with dark fruit, pressed blackberry, black licorice and spice. This winery tends to experiment with long skin maceration times at warm temperatures. These techniques result in the density and sheer fruit weight you get here." ROBERT PARKER

"Ripe and rich Barolo with dried-berry and chocolate aromas and flavors and hints of hazelnuts. It’s full-bodied with rich, ripe tannins and a flavorful finish. Give it two or three years to soften. Better after 2022." JAMES SUCKLING
