Based on my recent tastings of Reverdito wines, I'm confident in saying their 2016 Barolo will be THE DEAL of the entire, legendary 2016 vintage. Yeah, that good and that cheap.
Reverdito Barolo has always been a spectacular value in Barolo but the new vintages (beginning in 2015) are steps above all of their predecessors, particularly in silkiness and elegance. It makes sense--Dante Scaglione, who spent 15 years as head oenologist for Bruno Giacosa, one of Piedmont's legendary producers, became the consultant for Reverdito in 2015. His influence is clearly felt through an overall refined elegance, evolving from "yeah, it's good for the price" to "yeah, it's good!"
In past vintages I've advised decanting for early drinking but at this price? You can do whatever you want! That said, it has tons of life ahead of it should you want to tuck some away. Why drink Langhe Nebbiolo while you wait for your Barolo to age when you can drink Barolo?! - Marcus
