The Mauro Molino 2016 Barolo Gallinotto (this is a proprietary name, but the fruit comes from the Berri vineyard in the high part of La Morra) is beautifully smooth and supple even at this young age. Indeed, the overall approach is accessible and silky with an even presentation of wild berry fruit, rose, wet earth and white licorice. This wine glides clear over the palate with ease. It definitely recalls the characteristics of La Morra. "Silky" is the descriptor I would apply. Some 9,000 bottles were released. 94/100.
Antonio Galloni's Vinous.com: 90+/100 The 2016 Barolo Gallinotto is an attractive, gracious La Morra Barolo. The tannins need time to soften, so I would cellar it for at least a year or two. Dried cherry, mint, orange rind, crushed rose petal, anise and sweet spice all develop in the glass. Ultimately, the 2016 might merit a slightly more positive note if it sheds some of its youth.
