Award Winning Wine
Medium deep ruby with a lighter tawny rim. Fine purity, wild berries, tobacco, spice box, discreet oak and floral hints. The palate is dense and vigorous, still youthful but polished extract, finely spicy with a fresh backbone, elegant wild berry fruit with tobacco notes and a long pure finish, elegant and supple with lovely freshness.
Forbes; A few notes on the Palladino Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d’Alba from 2016. This was clearly an outstanding vintage, one of the finest in the last 20 years. The wines are rich and will age for many years, but the real treasure of this vintage is how elegant the tannins are. Of course, Barolo is always better after several years in the bottle, but the 2016s, especially the comune wines, are remarkably approachable now. The Palladino 2016 offers sumptuous aromas of red cherry, red poppy and rosemary, is medium-full with excellent ripeness, refined tannins and excellent persistence. Displaying wonderful varietal harmony, this is the best comune Barolo I have tasted from the 2016 vintage; enjoy it tonight or lay it away for another 8-12 years.
