Press & Reviews
A big, juicy red with plum, berry, cherry and hints of cedar character. It’s full-bodied, but remains agile and structured. Flavorful finish with chewy tannins. Give this three to four years to come around. Try after 2023.
The 2016 Barolo La Villa is a beguiling wine that needs a bit of time in bottle to fully open up. Then again, it is a young Barolo, so that is very much to be expected. Dried herbs, mint, licorice, dark cherry, underbrush and a whole range of spiced/balsamic notes fill out the layers. Next to the straight Barolo, La Villa has more body, depth and texture. It is another fine effort from Seghesio.
