Barolo Riserva Vignolo 2015 is already quite mature and therefore pretty ready to drink. The smooth and balanced structure makes this wine elegant but still with a good aging aptitude. The warm weather that characterized this vintage did not affect too much the Riserva Vignolo, as for the Barolo Riserva San Giuseppe, which actually shows a nice fruit and freshness. The palate is round and approachable, even though tannins would still need some time to fully ripen. The finish is as long as the palate of Barolo in the best vintages, sign of complexity and balance. The wine is best with second courses of red meat, simply grilled or roasted. Also good with hard and aged cheeses or it can be enjoyed by itself.

Aromas of leather, scorched earth, grilled herb and camphor come to the forefront along with a whiff of hazelnut. Savory and full-bodied, the compelling palate delivers dried cherry, orange zest, black licorice and baking spice set against youthfully firm but refined tannins. Drink 2025-2035.

Lifted and savory aromatics initially jump out of the 2015 Barolo Riserva Vignolo, with graphite, incense, brushed leather, and dried sour cherry. Full and balanced, with dried currant, tobacco leaf, and clove, it has a powerful, noble structure. This is a wine with layered complexity that is hard to pin down. Drink 2024-2050.

Ripe and packed with cherry, strawberry, wild herb and mineral flavors. Vibrant and beautifully balanced, showing a long fruity and herbal aftertaste. Delivers fine poise and harmony on an elegant frame. Best from 2023 through 2042. 580 cases made, 195 cases imported.

The 2015 Barolo Riserva Vignolo is a powerful, tightly wound wine that is going to need a few years to soften. Its gorgeous, translucent elegance is impossible to miss. Sweet red berry fruit, gravel, rose petal, mint, licorice and darker earthy tones all run through this compelling, beautifully layered Riserva. Impressive.
