2016 Sebaste, Barolo, Trèsüri (RT 94) A classic example of Barolo blending, this wine is sourced from estate-grown fruit from three Cru vineyards: Verduno’s Cru Breri, which is near Monvigliero (utilized for the fruit’s floral, fleshier aspect), La Morra’s Cru Roncaglie (added for its elegant, fine grained, sophisticated tannin) and Cerretta in Serralunga (added for structure and depth). Trèsüri Barolo is aged for three years in mostly second and third passage 1600-liter French oak barrels with a small amount in 400-500-liter tonneaux. The slight modern polish fades quickly in the glass, revealing the power, ripeness and firmness of the 2016 vintage. Notes of perfectly ripe morello cherry, rose water, sweet herbs and the slightest hint of green tea lead to a rich, full figured mouth coating ripeness. Wonderfully balanced acidity and sweet, ripe tannins combine for a perfect finish. This is beautiful and a wonderfully complete Barolo. Drink 2024-2040+
