Pecchenino 'San Giuseppe' Barolo 2013

External Review:

The Pecchenino wine estate dates back to the end of the 1700's and has always been a family-run operation, with the holding handed down from father to son for generations. The estate holds 60 acres of vines mostly in the Dogliani commune but 3 are in Monforte which is where this single vineyard Barolo comes from. Vines here are densely planted at over 2000 per acre leading to lower yields and rich flavors. Maceration on the skins lasted for 20 days followed by 24 months in large oak casks. James Suckling scored this 96 points saying "The aromas to this are so beautiful with ripe strawberry, dried lemon and flowers. Full body, dense palate of lots of ripe fruit and a long and flavorful finish. A top wine for the vintage. Drink in 2021."

Vintage: 2010 05/27/2015

Cherry, anise, menthol and tar aromas and flavors signal this unadorned Barolo. Fresh and well-balanced, this needs time to absorb the dusty tannins. Should come around soon. Best from 2017 through 2029. 466 cases made.

Vintage: 2010 05/27/2015

Orlando Pecchenino’s 2010 Barolo San Giuseppe excels in terms of elegance and harmony, especially given the balanced nature of the 2010 vintage. There’s an ethereal and feminine quality on display that emerges immediately thanks to aromas of wet asphalt, tar, pressed cherry, forest berry and tobacco ash. Although it is celebrated for its Barbera, Pecchenino shows a deft hand with the finicky Nebbiolo grape. The results here speak in clear tones with bright berry flavors and a long, satisfying finish. In addition to oak barrel, Barolo San Giuseppe refines in cement vats as well. Drink: 2016–2025.
