Barolo 2018 vintage report plus top-scoring wines

Aldo Fiordelli picks out 110 wines based on his tastings of the new 2018 Barolo vintage presenting a mix of top scorers, solid performers and great-value bottles.

The Barolo 2018 vintage has produced some delicious, open-knit and approachable wines due to moderate acidity and ripe tannins, as well as good complexity displayed in the top examples. But mostly, it’s just very tasty!

Is it a great vintage? Probably not, but only because the ageing potential is supposedly shorter.
