This was super pretty on day 4. Opened a day early and it was a little tight and tart on the finish. By day four it was smooth and balanced. SS

The 2015 Barolo San Lorenzo di Verduno is a powerful, muscular wine, and yet it also has a sense of translucence that is hugely appealing. Iron, smoke, blood, leather, tobacco and incense give the San Lorenzo a distinctly feral, wild quality. I expect the 2015 will always remain a bit rustic in feel, but it certainly has plenty of character, as well as the structure to develop well for a number of years.
