A lush and approachable Barolo from a superb new collective. Terre Del Barolo brought together growers in the 1950s, and is newly emerging as a source of extreme quality and value. This bright-fruited Nebbiolo was sourced from an impressive range of eleven villages (hence "Undicicomuni") before being fermented in steel, then aged in large and small formats of French oak. Broad textures and flavours are balanced by lushness and precise tannins, making this a wonderful Barolo to drink now or cellar to a decade plus.
Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"A unique wine; a true expression of each vintage. Top quality clusters tended with care in the best positions on our vineyards in the eleven villages (“undici comuni”, hence the name) in the Barolo growing area. The circular logo on the label shows, in different colours, the areas of the eleven villages."
17/20 Walter Speller, JancisRobinson.com (2016 Vintage)
"Lustrous mid ruby. Pretty nose of concentrated, peppery cherry fruit. Crunchy red-fruit palate underpinned with stalky tannins. Elegant medium-bodied feel. Can be approached now. Should be VGV." Drink 2020 – 2028."
94/100 JamesSuckling.com (2016 Vintage)
"Aromas of sweet berries with fresh, floral and forest-flower notes that turn to conifer and perfume. Medium-to full-bodied with racy tannins. I like the dried-fruit flavours with hints of mushrooms and dried meat. Better in 2022."
