2019 BAROLO - BACK ON TRACK
BY ANTONIO GALLONI, VINOUS.COM
“After the highly problematic and uneven 2018s, Barolo bounces back with a stellar vintage in 2019 that could very well represent the beginning of a new cycle of strong, outstanding years for this historic appellation. The 2019s are potent, tightly wound wines that will thrill readers who appreciate the nuance, subtlety and structure of Nebbiolo. Today, the 2019s show elements of youthful austerity that, at times, recall vintages such as 2016, 2005 and 1999. The only thing 2019 lacks is some of the visceral excitement found in the very best years, although the top wines certainly check all the boxes.”
We are excited to present a small range of 2019 Baroli from some of our favourite producers. As Galloni mentions the 2019s are typified by there intensity and structure and are wines that are being eagerly snapped up by collectors who are starting to empty their cellars of the stunning 2010 and 2016 vintages.
