Maurizio Sòt is a superstar. This is a rockstar wine. Nose is so unique and aromatic. Red cherries, herbs, sweet roses, sweeter darker cherries, amazing perfume. The brilliance of 2016 Barolo at the village level is not talked about enough. Glorious spice after 15-18 minutes now. Just glorious. Oh the palate. Sweet and decadent and precise with super sappiness on the finish. Gorgeous red fruits, strawberry, even a hint of red delicious apple, and so many cherries. Amazing precision and depth. Big tannins ensure a long life. Classically structured. Excellent length and persistence. — a month ago

Nose is huge florals and tropical fruit.
Palate is tropical fruit. Some minerality.
As this opens imagine like the best early season apricots with lovely tartness. Delicious. Very distinctive. Less pineapple / guava. Pure apricot as it opens.
Some wild internal aromatics. Fermented honey???
Finish is unusual. Apricot skin ?
Really a wine you want to own. Not the most complex but very different. With lobster or fois gras would be amazing.
