2016 Barolo 'Ornato'

Robert Parker/Wine Advocate

94 Points

The 2015 Barolo Ornato takes the intensity level (within the Palladino portfolio) up a full notch. The wine is very expressive and open from the start with dark fruit, ripe blackberry, spice, tar and leather. This wine plays its strongest cards in terms of texture, richness and intensity. Nicely done. Only 2,000 bottles were released.

Veronica Santero, the niece of Maurilio Palladino, is the winemaker here, producing a number of Barolos from Serralunga, and the Ornato bottling has been made since 2009. The nose is rich and vibrant, with raspberry coulis and dried herb aromas. Although dense and full-bodied, this has a velvety texture as well as formidable tannins. There's only moderate acidity but there's enough extract and grip to give a long, persuasive finish. Drinking window 2012-2036

Balsamic aromas of camphor mingle with underbrush, leather, dark spice and a whiff of blue flower. Reflecting the nose, the solidly built, full-bodied palate offers dried cherry, cranberry, licorice and cake spice set against tightly woven, fine-grained tannins before a coffee bean close. Drink 2023–2035. KERIN O’KEEFE
