E. Molino, Barolo, Riserva del Fico 2016

E. Molino

Case Format: 6x75cl

Nestled in the heart of the Barolo region in Piedmont, E. Molino’s Riserva del Fico has been crafting exceptional Barolo wines for generations, and the Riserva del Fico stands as a testament to their unwavering commitment to quality.

Crafted from 100% Nebbiolo grapes, this Barolo Riserva is a captivating expression of the region’s terroir. Grapes are carefully handpicked from the estate’s oldest vines, some of which are more than half a century old. This selection imparts a depth and complexity that is the hallmark of this exceptional wine.
In the cellar, the winemaking process is a fusion of tradition and innovation. The Riserva del Fico is aged for a minimum of five years, with a significant portion spent in Slavonian oak casks, followed by further refinement in bottle. This extended aging allows the wine to develop its character, resulting in a wine that is both powerful and graceful.

The wine opens with an enchanting bouquet of dried rose petals, cherry, and hints of leather, revealing the rounded qualities of Nebbiolo. On the palate, it unfolds with layers of dark plum, tobacco, and a subtle earthiness, framed by firm yet velvety tannins. The finish is enduring and harmonious, leaving an indelible impression of Barolo.

E. Molino’s Barolo Riserva del Fico is a wine of rare distinction, a harmonious blend of tradition and innovation that captures the soul of Barolo.

Monica Larner

From a classic vintage, the E. Molino 2016 Barolo Riserva del Fico reveals a subtle sense of power and intensity that grows in small but firm increments. This focused and more angular approach is a characteristic of this vintage. You get dried forest fruit, cassis, tilled earth and plenty of blue flower or violet. The wine is elegant and mid-weight on the palate.
