Il Poeta Barolo 2016

Barolo DOCG

From a near perfect vintage and a fourth generation family cellar, this is a magnificent, well priced Barolo. It's a pure expression of the Nebbiolo grape from prized Piedmont. Silky tannins support the red fruit and dried flower spice notes.

The Sartirano cellar was founded in 1871 and 150 years later is in the hands of the fourth generation, Paolo. He works closely with all his growers to gain exceedingly high quality grapes. One in particular is Señor Seghesia, who loves to describe Tuscan life and experience in poetry. Hence the name of this wine. Paolo is a very particular and dedicated winemaker, searching out terrific fruit. He even found a few rows of an almost extinct grape – Nas-Cetta – from which he makes a few bottles of rare white. His Il Poeta, particularly the magnificent 2016 vintage, is a poetical expression of the finest Nebbiolo. Aged over 3 years in Slavonian oak barrels, the wine is complex, deeply flavoured and silky. Let it breathe; serve with roast game.

"Full of truly spectacular, breathtaking wines that captures all the pedigree of Nebbiolo and Barolo" Antoni Galloni, Vinous
