Principiano's Barolo Serralunga comes from two crus: Lirano, and the younger vine portion of Boscareto, the historic vineyard that abuts the famous Francia. In the 2015 vintage there will be no single cru bottling of Boscareto from Principiano, and so all the grapes are going into the Barolo Serralunga. This wine shows a beautiful light ruby color in the glass, with faint hints of brick red. The nose is deep and complex, with cherry, red fruit, rose and sandalwood combining in a balanced expression of classic Barolo. The palate shows the ripe nature of the 2015 vintage with quite open and approachable fruit, and once again that note of sandalwood and spice. Oskar Kostecki
With fruit from Boscaretto (85%, and old vines, bordering Francia) and Lirano, this is textbook Serralunga Barolo, austere but entrancing – just a beautiful, classic classico, with good lift and energy, not at all rustic – suave ripe tannin. A great bottle. Jamie Wolff
