The 2016 Barolo Cerequio is a big, powerful wine. Chiarlo has chosen to bring out a bit more power and density than Cerequio seems naturally predisposed to, but it all works well. Black cherry, spice, leather, licorice and menthol all flesh out with some coaxing. The new oak tannins are pushed to the maximum, but it all works. 2024-2036
Loads of roasted chestnuts, glazed cherries, licorice and dried rosemary. Excellent depth and concentration here; think dried berries and forest floor. Tightly strung with raw, powerful tannins and lots of flavor. Long and chewy on the finish. Drink from 2024.
