There is a Brunello Cerretalto and Barolo from the great 2016 and 2019 vintages. The new Barolo vintages have such perfect tannins that they can be drunk with pleasure even young.

The Giulia Negri 2019 Barolo Serradenari is a prime example of a classic Barolo with an opulent nose of forest floor, tar, moss and full body, lots of tannin and long finish. For a traditional Barolo, it is supple and polished, with a nice freshness. 18.5/20 points.

The Pio Cesare 2019 Barolo Ornato is a modern and masculine Barolo with licorice, tar, raspberry, full body, lots of melted tannin, medium to long finish and a very light lacticism. 18.5/20 points.

The Roagna 2016 Barolo Pira Vecchie Viti has rosehip, red currant, powdered sugar, full body, good balance, polished tannin and medium to long finish. The Barolo is light on its feet, elegant, classic and seems rather light. 19/20 points.

The Casanova di Neri 2001 Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto is unusual for a Brunello. The wine is very dense and has bacon fat, herbs, rosehip, eucalyptus, a full body, a long finish, power, lots of very fine tannin and structure. 18.8-19.4/20 points.

Sensational is the Paolo Scavino 2016 Barolo Monvigliero, a perfect combination of power and elegance. The wine needs aeration and has red currant, full body, lots of fine tannin, a long finish, lots of power, structure and density. 19.5/20 points.

The Domenico Clerico 2016 Barolo Ciabot Mentin has red currant, red fruit, dried rose petals, full body, lots of fine tannin, a long finish, good balance and structure. The wine needs a lot of aeration. 19.3/20 points.
