Editorial Reviews for Barolo DOCG Riserva San Giuseppe
This was a late release shipped just last year or so and easily identified by its massive wax capsule. From the moment the cork was pulled this had a screamingly effusive nose of menthol, mineral, red berry with green walnut, and spiced blackberry pie filling notes. This is round and lush with superb integration to the orchard fruit notes that feather out across the palate. there is real freshness here with almost no development. At the table this is both herbal and sweet, sweetly herbal and jammily fruity with interesting grace notes of casin and seasalt adding a savory element. In the mouth this is still fresh with lovely balance, soft tannins and integrated acidity giving an overall impression of elegance to the layered palate with its balancing toned of fruit and mineral but lacks a bit of complexity that hopefully will develop with time.
External Reviews for Barolo DOCG Riserva San Giuseppe
1979 is a vintage overlooked in the pantheon of great Barolo vintages. The wines were always smaller in scale than other great vintages but offer an elegant, more feminine expression of Barolo. This is just lovely right now, silky and fragrant with crisp light red berry fruit dominating the palate and turning tarry and spicy on the long finish.
