Vite Colte Essenze Barolo DOCG 2016
- Textured, savoury
- Barolo DOCG
We’ve gone a bit mad for Barolo recently at the ‘Fo. The loyalists keep demanding it so we keep importing it. And we’ve got another shining star right here. Vite Colte’s Essenze Barolo earned a lofty 95 points from James Suckling. Not too shabby! It’s made in a generous style with a nose of violets, vanilla and tobacco. The palate is quite structured, but certainly not shy with cherry, raspberry and even a hint of aged balsamic. Have a look at Mr. Suckling’s review below to see what an expert says.
“Dense and tight with chewy tannins, dried fruit and chocolate/hazelnut flavors. It’s full-bodied with wonderful richness and power at the end. Needs two to three years to come around.”
Full price $130.00 from the producer.

These are the wines dreams are made of, from the foggy little tough-skinned nebbiolo grape and the beautiful region of truffles and rolling hillsides. In these dreams lives the hauntingly long flavours and "peacock tail"-like tannins that bring a kaleidoscope of ever-evolving experience to the taste buds, and conversation to the table. To me, where Burgundy falls short so often, Barolo is rarely not worth the money. In fact, once you experience a good vintage with the right amount of age, it's hard not to justify the coin.
