Barolo DOCG Villero 2016, Boroli

Villero is one of the most iconic vineyards of the Castiglione Falletto area, near the Barolo village. This vineyard has a South/South-East aspect, ensuring fully ripe Nebbiolo berries at the end of the season, and soils composed by a mixture of clay and limestone. This elegant Barolo has been matured for 18 months in big oak barrels and then one year in bottle at least.

The Barolo DOCG Villero 2016 has a brilliant garnet colour, it is lively in the glass.

It displays powerful fruity notes of red fruits, such as red cherries and redcurrant, combined with an intense plum note. There are also a lot of spices aromas of cloves, vanilla and juniper. The tertiary notes are pretty delicate and elegant, not overwhelming on the nose.

The wine has high tannins and high acidity that clean the mouth and enhance the red fruits aromas on the aftertaste. The freshness of the wine perfectly balances the smooth texture and the high alcohol content of the wine.

The Villero 2016 by Boroli winery is an elegant and perfectly balanced Barolo DOCG that can easily age more than twenty years, if stored properly. In fact, the high tannins and acidity will help maintain the fruity flavors of the wine, while they are combining with the tertiary notes linked to the bottle aging.
