Cascina Sòt Barolo DOCG 2016
This product is currently sold out.
One of the great Baroli from a great vintage - classic power within an elegant frame. The wine is gently handled with no harsh extraction or murky oak. It develops gorgeously over the hours at a confident pace. The purity of fruit matters and is something that Maurizio will be famous for as his reputation grows. The most subtle of oak and beautifully managed tannin profile allows a restrained rush of fruit to take centre stage. Give it time.
"Deepish red colour with a trace of purple still lingering in the rim. The bouquet is savoury, earthy, ironstone mineral and laced with smoked charcuterie. In the mouth, it's full-bodied and intense, with tightness and elegance rather than bigness or heft. Great precision, intensity and drive, the finish lingering on very long. Hints of liqueur cherry in the aftertaste. A very smart young Barolo." Huon Hooke - The Real Review
