2017 Mauro Sebaste, Barolo, Trèsüri (RT93) This classic wine reflects the house style of Mauro Sebaste – one I like to refer to as “enlightened winemaking” embracing a combination of winemaking styles. Here the grapes are aged for 36 months in a combination of 1600 liter French oak combined with some smaller 400-liter tonneaux. The result is a gorgeous fruit-driven style that focuses on the Nebbiolo grape. The ripeness of this vintage shows with deep, rich, luxurious black cherry, cranberry, lavender, and menthol accented by a pinch of minerality. The mouthfeel is succulent, round, and delicious with supple acidity and sweet ripe tannins. This currently benefits from time in the glass where its exposure to oxygen brings out much more than a pop n’ pour approach. Drink 2024-2037+
