Maretti Barolo 2016
12th January 2021
"A new wine for Maretti, and I see it’s bottled by Terre del Barolo, who have quite a few vineyard sources, to say the least. Anyway, a pretty good vintage to choose, for launching a new wine. Importer: Fourth Wave Wine
Traditional style, more or less, rich in dark cherry, with sage, mint, and new leather, and some aniseed and cocoa. Full-bodied, slightly meaty and rustic, but in a good way, ripe suede-like tannin, earthy, freshness with power, and a mesh of dry tannin and dried herb laced dark fruit on a finish of solid length. It’s already quite approachable, but should do well over the medium term. Value is excellent."
