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

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
