    The 2016 Barolo Rupestris is unbelievably delicate. A Barolo of haunting beauty, the Rupestris is endowed with sneaky concentration that reveals itself only with time in the glass. Potent tannins and bright acids give the Rupestris fabulous energy. Readers should be prepared to cellar the 2016 for a number of years. It is one of the most reticent young vintages I have ever tasted here. Dried cherry, mint, cedar, dried flowers and sweet pipe tobacco linger on the sinewy finish. (01.2021)


    The 2016 Barolo Barolo Rupestris is very elegant, delicate and refined in this vintage. Sweet red cherry, kirsch, mint, dried rose petal and sage are all beautifully lifted. In 2016, the Rupestris is laid back and very pretty, but also shows less overt depth than it often does. Time in the glass brings out the textural breadth that is such a signature of this Barolo. It will be interesting to see if it gains more volume in bottle. There is no rush, as the 2016 won't see the light of day until 2021. (11.2019)
