Chionetti is world renowned for their Dolcetto Dogliani, and in the 2015 vintage have released their first official Barolos. The source of fruit is undeniable, with the Pianpolvere vineyard leading the portfolio. This is a producer to watch. The nose was exotic and perfumed, with zesty wild flowers and herbs giving way to lifting minerality, as notes of bright cherry and dusty earth filled the senses. On the palate, I found soft textures complemented by brisk acidity, giving way to bright cherry, sweet spice and inner floral tones. The finish was long and youthfully structured with fine tannin, yet balanced ripe red fruits continued to last on the senses.
