Barolo Bricco San Pietro - Anna Maria Abbona 2016
Coming from the single vineyard of Bricco San Pietro in Monforte d'Alba, this superb 2016 wine is only the 3rd vintage to be made. But what a wine! The vineyard itself covers quite a large area yet Anna Maria only has a small proportion of the overall surface. The nose is slightly backward for now (October 2021) with aromas of red fruits, floral notes and hints of liquorice. This will develop i tome to open to a fine and elegant nose as we witnessed before bottling. On the palate, it is dominated with bright red fruit flavours, great purity and fine and elegant tannins that will support the wine for some 5 to 10 years of life. The finish has a balsamic note to it and it is very well balanced and long.
