In Barolo, having connections to Cru vineyards is an excellent thing. Renzo Seghesio is the former mayor of Monforte, and since 1900 his family has owned Cascina Pajana, a small division of the Ginestra Cru Vineyard. Ginestra is one of Barolo’s top Crus, and wines from it can fetch well over $100 per bottle and garner high 90s scores. Renzo’s 2014 Barolo contains 60% Ginestra and Pajana fruit, layered with 40% grapes from La Morra, and at $40, the quality is unmatched.

After graduating from the University of Turin, Renzo returned to Piedmont in the 1960s to craft wine from his family’s parcels. He also purchased a small plot in La Morra, which adds freshness and earlier approachability than the single-vineyard Ginestra or Pajana bottlings, which sell for around double.

Ginestra Vineyard sits on calcareous-clay and yellowish sandstone soils, and the vines yield powerful Nebbiolo fruit. Renzo’s plot in La Morra is farmed and vinified identically to Ginestra and Pajana, and at $40, don’t miss out.

Description

2014 RENZO SEGHESIO BAROLO

Tasting Notes: “The Renzo Seghesio Barolo 2014 is classically styled with penetrating sour cherries, concentrated red currants, fresh violets, hints of tar and slightly grainy tannins.  It is focused and long on the finish, with mouth quenching acidity.  Drink over the next decade.”
