Like its Barbaresco cousin, Barolo is a true icon. Celebrated as a symbol of apex Italian wine, it's a region known for intense, unmistakable reds that has few peers around the world.
Lot 762 is an Italian beauty. With perfect winery-direct provenance from a top producer in the heart of the Langhe, the wine is an exceptional offering that the Nebbiolo lovers among you are undoubtedly going to love. 2016 was a classic late-ripening vintage in Barolo, known for balance, harmony, and depth across the board. Unsurprisingly, it’s one of the top rated vintages of the decade, and Galloni in Vinous described the 2016s as “full of truly spectacular, breathtaking wines that captures all the pedigree that Nebbiolo and Barolo are capable of.” Despite the wine's relative youth, there’s no decant needed here – while two hours of air did show some improvement, it’s already terrific from the start and a showcase of masterful Italian winemaking.
Gorgeous nose. Drinking nicely now. We enjoyed it with fennel-rosemary duck breast. Long, leather-fruit dry finish. Really great.
First time trying
First time trying a Barolo and was pleasantly surprised
A light but tolerable Barolo
This wine starts off very dry but it’s flavors immediately change your concern. The lightness of the wine is seen in the pour and then if you are more of a medium to heavy bodied wine drinker you are a bit taken that it feels more like a Pino Noir. Not a primary wine but a distant backup.
I had never had a Baraolo before and was pleasantly surprised. Light and refreshing for a red - would love to have more but too late for that!
Great flavor and took me by surprise because I was expecting more of a fruity flavor but I enjoyed this lighter red.
I've never had a Barolo before--which is too bad because it was so enjoyable. We serve with fresh Mahi and it paired well
going to hold
Delicious now, maybe better later
I bought a few to see if it improves with time
I wish there was more to purchase. Interesting and lighter than expected.
Very nice - more old world please
For context, I am not an Italian wine expert. I generally lean more toward California Cabernet, Bordeaux, and Cote-du-Rhone. Despite my lack on knowledge, I enjoyed Lot 762. I was lighter than a lot of my usual choices, but still really nice. I would have gotten more for an alternative . I hope Cameron and team continue to find more gems outside the US. Always good to learn ....
I really liked it!
I noticed pretty mixed reviews on this one, but I really enjoyed it! I can actually see both sides of the story, but for me it was a lovely drink! Unfortunately I cannot repeat that - boy did this go fast!
