2015 Barolo En Primeur
Seize the moment and look forward to magical drinking in the years ahead
Ripe, fragrant, generous wines to reserve today
Barolo is a wine with memorable bouquet, fascinating flavour and the potential to deliver magical drinking. Made exclusively from nebbiolo, one of the mighty handful of truly great red wine grapes, the finest deserve ageing. Like good Burgundy, they are also made in limited quantities, mostly from small family estates.
After an excellent year like 2015, therefore, we wanted to offer this selection of great wines for you to reserve now.
All of these wines stood out for quality in our November tastings, showing the ripe, healthy, fragrant fruit and generous full flavour that characterise the vintage. Early summer was unusually hot but August, September and October were more moderate, allowing the grapes to gain finesse as well as full ripeness.
Barolo has an exceptional range of hillside sites with diverse orientations and soils that lead to wines with fascinating individuality and personality. In this selection you’ll find wines from the more precocious vineyards of Verduno and La Morra, via Barolo and Monforte d’Alba to the ageworthy Serralunga.
