Red Wine /// Nebbiolo // Barolo / Italy
2016 eh? La Morra out of all the communes in Barolo showcases this mesmeric vintage best. Typically the lightest in body out of the region, it's naturally open-knit and elegant character showcases the drinkability of the vintage perfectly. It may seem weird to talk about drinking Barolo on release, but that's where we are. There is no need to keep a wine just because it's Barolo.
Alessandro Locatelli is the head winemaker for this renowned La Morra estate. Alessandro is a special proposition because since he took over in the 80's, he has overseen every aspect of the business, from management of vineyards and winemaking activities, to business development and expansion and the label is a conspicuous presence on global markets. The wines offer fabulous value for money. STSWine
