Silvio Grasso Barolo Turne 2016 / 750 ml.

Item#: 93101

VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Feb 2020
The 2016 Barolo Turnè offers an attractive combination of bold, rich and powerful sweet tobacco, cedar, dried herbs, menthol, licorice and spice all build in a beautifully layered, expressive Barolo loaded with dimension and complexity. The 2016 is a wonderfully deep and nuanced wine made very much in the mid-weight style of the year.

Aromas of iris, tobacco and underbrush lead the way. The savory medium-bodied palate offers raspberry jam, clove and white pepper alongside firm, fine-grained tannins. Drink 2023–2032.

Where It's From

Region / Piedmont

View more wines from Piedmont

Located in northwestern Italy near the Italian Alps, Piedmont is home to two of Italy's more famous wines: Barolos and Barbarescos. Each of these wines are made with the Nebbiolo grape, which is the premier red grape in the region. Other red grapes of note used in Piedmont include Barbera and Dolcetto. Among white wine grapes used in Piedmont are Moscatos, which are increasing in popularity here in the US. Piedmont's capital city Torino is also home to large productions of Vermouth, also made from Moscato.

This opens with aromas of black-skinned fruit, tobacco and cooking spice. The solid palate offers baked plum, espresso and clove alongside assertive tannins that grip the close. Drink after 2023.

Fabio Oberto Barolo 2016 / 750 ml.

2016 / 750 ml.

Item #: 98809

JS9393 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, January 3, 2022
Intense nose of fresh and dried red berries, together with dried leaves and dark, clove-like spice. Medium-bodied with firm tannins and a concentrated bead of bright fruit and minerals. The tannins pull hard on the finish for now, so wait for this one. It’s structured and layered and definitely built to last. Hold until 2024.
RP8989 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 17th Jun 2021
The Fabio Oberto 2016 Barolo showcases a shiny or glossy textural quality that is a common characteristic of Nebbiolo from this classic vintage. The wine imparts an especially smooth and silky entry to the palate. In the case of this Barolo, the aromas are a little mixed and varied with dried fruit, savory spice, musky earth, leather and a point of black truffle. There is a hint of plastic or animal that fades quickly as the wine takes in more air in the glass. (Monica Larner)

Aromas of leather, camphor and underbrush follow over to the palate together with notes of salted game and dried cherry. Firm acidity and tight close-grained tannins leave an austere, rather astringent finish.

Elio Altare Barolo Cannubi 2016 / 750 ml.

2016 / 750 ml.

Item #: 93098

RP97+97+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 23rd Jul 2020
Fruit for this wine comes from a leased vineyard site in Cannubi (in the comune of Barolo), and the first year of production was 2011. This is a passion project very much spearheaded by Elio’s rambunctious and curly-haired daughter Silvia Altare. The 2016 Barolo Cannubi represents a beautiful departure in the family portfolio. Within this collection of new releases, the Cannubi best articulates the purity of the Nebbiolo grape. Like the other Baroli, it is aged in oak for two years (with 20% new barrique). There is greater varietal purity here with etched and linear fruit tones followed by ethereal smoke, tar and white licorice. I love the mouthfeel too, with that sudden point of cherry sweetness that is followed by elegant texture and acidity. This is a gorgeous release of just 1,500 bottles.

The 2016 Barolo Cannubi is a powerful, structured wine that is going to need time to come into its own. Cannubi Barolos are often seductive when young, but Altare’s 2016 has quite a bit of tannin that needs time to soften. Even so, all the elements are wonderfully balanced. Kirsch, sweet tobacco, menthol, licorice and dried flowers infuse the 2016 with striking layers of nuance.
SP9595 pts. - Wine Spectator - Feb 28, 2021
There's a pure core of cherry and strawberry in this red, graced by notes of licorice, spice and tar. Balanced and harmonious, with lively acidity driving the long aftertaste. The tannins are suave and mesh well already at this young stage. Best from 2023 through 2042. 125 cases made, 50 cases imported. (Bruce Sanderson)

Plum and cherry fruit is accented by licorice, leather and tar notes in this tightly wound red. The tannins are on the severe side today, yet this finds equilibrium in the end. Best from 2023 through 2043. 450 cases made, 200 cases imported. (Bruce Sanderson)

Juniper, strawberry, cherry, hay and soy flavors abound in this dense, lively red, which tightens up, losing a little of its initial fluidity and leaving a long, if compact, finish. Best from 2024 through 2042. 90 cases made. (Bruce Sanderson)
VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Oct 2021
The 2016 Barolo del Comune di Barolo is an attractive, understated wine. Time in the glass brings out lovely inner sweetness and perfume. This is an especially ethereal style. Sweet dried cherry, crushed flowers, cedar and spice are nicely lifted. I would prefer to drink the 2016 over the next 10-15 years, as it does not appear to have the stuffing of the other wines in the range. The Comune bottling emerges from a parcel in the Terlo cru.
