Barbaresco Riserva Sori Paitin Paitin Vecchie Vigne 2016 (750ML)
96 Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Paitin 2016 Barbaresco Serraboella Riserva Sorì Paitin Vecchie Vigne is a gorgeous wine. The bouquet is especially redolent of dried rose and potpourri, and the dark fruit offers highlights of baked cherry or peach. This amazing crescendo of new releases from Paitin goes one impressive step further, pushing the boundaries with this promising and cellar-worthy new release. There is a point of bitter almond on the close, but the mouthfeel is otherwise silky and very fine in texture. Exactly 5,281 bottles were released." 07/21
93 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Vecchie Vigne possesses quite a bit of depth and yet retains the classic mid-weight style that is typical of the Paitin wines these days. Black cherry, licorice, spice, underbrush, sage and menthol build as this potent, ample Barbaresco shows off its considerable allure. The long, substantial finish adds to my optimism. At this point, the 2016 is pretty closed and the tannins are formidable, but that is not surprising given the style of the year. The 2016 is a step in the right direction for an estate that has had some ups and downs in the recent past." 10/20
95 Points, James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com: "Complex nose, offering spicy dried red fruit, musty bark, forest floor and dried flowers. Full-bodied with a silky start. The tannins are still firm, but well polished and act more as a carriage for the substantial fruit than a hindrance. Super Barbaresco. So tempting now, if you like chewy nebbiolo, but best in 2024 and onwards." 08/21
94 Points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator: "A fresh, spicy style, whose cherry, tar, iron and tobacco flavors are framed with a light toasting of oak. It's all focused by the vibrant structure, with refined tannins lining the finish. Shy and austere, yet nicely balanced and long. Best from 2025 through 2042. 440 cases made, 116 cases imported." 08/22
