Barolo 2016 - Vintage of the Century!

Barolo 2016 - Vintage of the Century!

We’ve been tasting the incredible Barolo’s made in 2016 since they arrived in the country about a year ago, and we swiftly decided to stock up as they have been some of the most enthralling and perfect Barolo’s we have seen since the excellent 2010 and 2013 vintages.

Today we have compiled a list of now rare 2016’s that should be in the cellar of any serious Barolo drinker and collector. These producers are brought into the country by top importers who represent some of the finest exponents of Barolo in Piedmont.

2016, as all the prominent wine writers attest, was a near-perfect classic late-ripening vintage, producing wines of purity, harmony and balance. Barolo enthusiasts should be scrambling to put these beautiful wines into their collection before they all vanish into private cellars.

We back up our offer today with top reviews of all the wines we have selected.
