2016 Daniele Conterno, Barolo, Panerole (RT94) Crafted from both Michet and Lampia clones, this single vineyard selection is macerated in wood vats for 30 days prior to aging for 30 months in large Slavonian casks. This is soft and accessible considering the structured vintage, making it a delicious, early drinking option. A big step up from the classico Barolo, this shows deeply ripe notes of black cherry, anise, sweet plums and hints of hazelnut and menthol. The palate is rich and luxurious, layered with ripe fruit, soft acidity, and perfectly ripe sweet tannins. This is a tasty 2016 with a promising future but remains highly accessible. Drink 2024-2036+
