    Barolo "San Giuseppe" DOCG 2016

    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! SUPERIORE.DE

    "Long established in the area of Dogliani, Pecchenino is known for first-rate Dolcetto. Holdings in Barolo are more recent and include vineyards in Bussia, Le Coste di Monforte and Ravera di Monforte - San Giuseppe blends fruit from all three for this wine. After a little coaxing, bright red fruits mingle with orange, rose and mushroom. Polished, silky tannins provide effortless support to pristine ripe fruit. This is vibrant throughout with a lingering strawberry finish, and while the structure is already approachable, its complexities will become more prominent with time in the bottle." Decanter

    "Plenty of tannic clout signals this cherry and currant-flavored Barolo. Its solid structure supports the fruit and secondary notes of eucalyptus, juniper, mown hay and stone. Though slim, it persists, and there is plenty to like despite the stiff tannins." Wine Spectator

    "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

    "The 2016 Barolo San Giuseppe is a very pretty, ethereal wine. Sweet red berry fruit, flowers, mint, cinnamon and pine give the 2016 a striking upper register. Bright and translucent in the glass, with lovely depth, the 2016 is classic in bearing but also has enough fruit and mid-palate pliancy to avoid being overly austere for a young Barolo." Vinous

    "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
