The first release of Gagliardo's village La Morra, designed to show of why this village is thought to produce the most elegant and aromatic Barolos.

ML: "This is one of two new wines to join the Gianni Gagliardo portfolio with this vintage. The 2016 Barolo del Comune di La Morra draws its fruit from various vineyards in the Santa Maria subzone and from the Serra dei Turchi vineyard that is closest to the winery headquarters. With a small production of 4,260 bottles, the wine is soft and lush with generous doses of Nebbiolo fruit and oak spice. The tight and linear tannins should guide the wine forward in time. 93"

"The shy nose eventually reveals oak-driven sensations, hazelnut and underbrush along with a whiff of pine resin. The firm palate starts off with sour cherry, cranberry and star anise before assertive, grainy tannins rear up, creating an extremely astringent, mouthdrying close that truncates the finish." -Kerin O'keefe

What importer Bowler Wine has to say about this wine...

2016 marks the first release of Gagliardo’s Barolo del Comune di La Morra. It is a selection of fruit from the vineyards adjacent to the cellar, the crus of Santa Maria and Serra dei Turchi. This area of La Morra has some of the youngest soils in the Barolo zone, which impart more immediate drinkability. Harvest was on October 17th and 18th. Macerations lasted 12 days. Aging was in large French oak botti of 3500L for 30 months. 4,260 bottles made.
