Tasting Notes

The 2016 Barolo Serradenari is a fascinating wine. Complex aromatics make a strong first impression. Dried herbs, licorice, mint, tobacco and earthy notes are beguiling. On the palate, the 2016 is deep and also quite powerful, yet it also retains the mid-weight style that is so characteristic of these wines. A Barolo of intrigue and character, the Serradenari has so much to offer. Time in the glass brings out quite a bit of breadth. 2024-2036

Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, October 2020

Blue-flower, rose, botanical herb and red-berry aromas waft out of the glass along with a whiff of new leather. Showing its La Morra origins, it's elegantly structured and linear, offering juicy morello cherry, crushed raspberry and dark spice flavors. Taut refined tannins and fresh acidity provide lithe support. Drink 2024–2031.

Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast, September 2020

Reaching 540 metres, Serradenari is the highest altitude site in the Barolo region. This cool area has been garnering more attention in the wake of climate change. A fairly sandy soil helps retain warmth and Dosio’s vineyards face south to southwest. The team also trims the wings and bottom of the bunches to help concentrate the grapes. There is a fair amount of ripeness in this 2016, and initially diffused aromas gain focus with some air. Scents of plum are intertwined with vanilla, cedar and smoky tobacco. Mid-weight though assertively structured, it finishes with juicy red forest fruit. 2023-2033
