Made from 100% Nebbiolo vines planted in 1985 and 1990, this delicious Barolo is made in a traditional style with 24 months in oak. Italy's best source for wine reviews, the Gambero Rosso, raves about this producer: "The Molinos again showed why they are among the top Langhe producers. Credit goes in particular to Mauro and his son, Matteo, who is partly responsible for the estate's enormous critical success. For the basic Barolo, the estate ages the wine in large Slavonian oak barrels, which is a classic practice in the region, and the wine is known for its delicate nose of violets and roasted fruits, and concentrated, harmonious palate…"

Here's a classic interpretation of this vintage and a wine that will bring a big return on such a relatively small investment with proper cellaring. The 2016 Barolo is a tonic and compact expression of Nebbiolo that will flesh out and take on more volume with time. This estate is based in the comune or village of La Morra, known for graceful, floral and softly textured Baroli. However, this wine is a blend of fruit from Annunziata and Berri in La Morra and Perno in Monforte d'Alba. This vintage offers the power and grit that will carry it forward, and with 45,000 bottles made, you should be able to get your hands on a case of it easily.

The 2016 Barolo is a gorgeous entry-level offering. Crushed flowers, cedar, sweet pipe tobacco, dried herbs and mint all lift from the glass effortlessly. Hints of dried cherry, pomegranate and earthiness appear later. I would prefer to drink this mid-weight, delicate, aromatic Barolo over the next handful of years, before the fruit fades. This is such a pretty wine, especially in its peer group.
