Tasting Notes

The 2016 Barolo is a very pretty, gracious wine. Crushed flowers, mint, orange peel, white pepper and bright red cherry fruit give the 2016 striking aromatic brilliance and freshness. This is an especially airy, ethereal Barolo with all of its elements very nicely balanced. Drink it over the next decade. 2024-2031

Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, October 2020

Pale garnet in the glass, this has a complex and layered nose of dried flowers, dried red cherry, leather and tobacco. The palate has the bite you would expect from good Nebbiolo, but this is measured and balanced by the intensity of fruit. Perfectly poised between ripeness and savoury tones, the moreish core drives against the structure to bring a lip-smacking tang of complexity. This is already delicious but should drink well for a decade in this superb vintage.

Farr Vintners, Farr Tasting, July 2021

Dosio owns 11ha, nine of which are in the Serradenari cru of La Morra and two in the Barolo side of Fossati. A blend of the two, this immediately drinkable Barolo is attractively scented and bright on the palate. Tobacco and spice add nuance to crunchy forest fruit. It's medium bodied and fairly silky with some coarser wood tannins appearing on the mid-palate. While a percentage of this sees French tonneaux, the estate is moving towards ageing in large Slavonian casks only, according to new winemaker Alessandro Muda, who replaced outgoing winemaker Marco Dotta in 2020. 2021-2028
