Single commune Barolo from best vintage in 30 years - for less than $80!
Hi everyone, as we've previously said, the 2016 Barolo vintage is considered to be the best in over 30 years. But the good news today is, we have perhaps the best value Barolo in Australia from that vintage - Boasso Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba 2016 and it's not $100+, but just $79.99.
The 2016 vintage has been praised by every producer in the region and international critics alike. The vintage is seriously good and here's just a snippet of what has been said:
''The best 2016s are already dazzling, with remarkable depth and energy. They’ll be ready at the 10-15 year mark but they also possess incredibly age-worthy structures as well." Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
"Everything came to perfect maturity in this 2016 vintage" Monica Larner, Wine Advocate Magazine
''Piedmont produced excellent quality wine in 2016.” Jancis Robinson MW
''2016 is brilliant. The perfect mix of the last 3 years but with an extra sparkle and magic” Vittore of Fratelli Alessandria
I will tell you this, it's darn easy to find $200+ Barolo from 2016, but it's downright hard to find one under $100, let alone one under $80, with critical acclaim to boot.
What's more, this wine is a single commune wine from Serralunga d'Alba, a commune renowned for producing Barolos of exceptional power and structure.
The 2016 has left a lasting legacy with some of the biggest Barolo experts!
''A pretty red with aromas of dried cherries and spicy undertones. It’s medium-bodied with firm tannins and a sleek, focused finish." 92 Points, James Suckling
''Pale garnet and a rather dusty nose with very fine tannins. Lots of bite, tang and life. Long and subtle. Still got a lot of maturing to do, but you could certainly enjoy it already with food. You could also enjoy it over several nights.” Jancis Robinson MW
If you've missed previous 2016 offers, or if you're keen to get a sense of what 2016 vintage Barolo is all about, then you should seriously consider this fabulous wine.
