JS 93
James Suckling

Strong notes of fresh herbs, leaves and red flowers with bright strawberries and wild raspberries. The palate has a smoothly succulent and juicy feel with a bright, brisk and assertive core of juicy red-fruit flavor. Drink or hold.


W&S 93
Wine & Spirits

Blended from three Monforte d’Alba crus (Le Coste, Ravera and Bussia), this is a bold, spicy Barolo. Notes of tobacco, tomato leaf and green peppercorn weave through the wine’s ripe black-cherry flavor, while grippy tannins and graphite notes give the wine a firm, vertical structure. Best Buy

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The fruit for the San Giuseppe line from Pecchenino comes exclusively from the vineyards of Le Coste, in the village of Barolo. The 2015 Barolo San Giuseppe opens to a generous and accessible style with solid varietal purity. This cru shows soft contours at the edges that work toward the general accessibility of the wine but don't take away from the sharpness and focus of the bouquet. Pair it with the famous "plin" ravioli of Piedmont, filled with beef or pork.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
This red strikes a nice balance between a core of strawberry and cherry fruit and leafy, eucalyptus and medicinal herb flavors. Taut and vibrant, with a lingering conclusion of cherry, tar and iron elements. Best from 2023 through 2042.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

This has an initially shy nose that eventually reveals rose, toasted hazelnut, new leather, camphor and a hint of tobacco. The palate is youthfully assertive, offering dried cherry, blood orange, espresso and a hint of rusty iron set against tight, grainy tannins that leave a rather dusty, drying finish

Pecchenino Pecchenino Estate Winery Image

The Company was founded at the end of the nineteenth century, in an area where Dolcetto vineyards have been a typical feature for centuries, as is documented by a writing that dates back to 1432, which is kept in the communal archives.

The farm has always been family run, and the land has passed from father to son throughout its history. The first historical evidence of the farm is from the beginning of the twentieth century, when the farm was led by Attilio Pecchenino (the grandfather) and had little more than 8 hectares of land. In the 70s, the farm was given to Marino Pecchenino (Attilio's son), and in 1987 to Orlando and Attilio (Marino's two sons) who currently own it and manage it. At present, after having recently bought a new farm (Bricco Botti), the total land owned by Pecchenino is approx. 25 hectares, all in the area of Dogliani. For a couple of year now, Pecchenino has expended much energy on making his dolcettos more elegant and appetizing abroad as well as in Italy. The results clearly show in his two main house Dolcettos: the San Luigi and the Siri d'Jermu that recently was upgraded to Dogliani DOCG status.

Pecchenino winery is managed in a sustainable fashion: Orlando is convinced that the quality of his wine is strictly related to the natural health of his vineyard. His main objective is that of growing the best possible grapes with the lowest possible impact on nature. In the vineyards, he opts for organic compost and avoids the use of any chemical products for weed or pest control; his treatments in the vineyards are all natural unless it becomes absolutely necessary.

The center of the production of the world’s most exclusive and age-worthy red wines made from Nebbiolo, the Barolo region includes five core townships: La Morra, Monforte d’Alba, Serralunga d’Alba, Castiglione Falletto and the Barolo village itself, as well as a few outlying villages. The landscape of Barolo, characterized by prominent and castle-topped hills, is full of history and romance centered on the Nebbiolo grape. Its wines, with the signature “tar and roses” aromas, have a deceptively light garnet color but full presence on the palate and plenty of tannins and acidity. In a well-made Barolo, one can expect to find complexity and good evolution with notes of, for example, strawberry, cherry, plum, leather, truffle, anise, fresh and dried herbs, tobacco and violets.

There are two predominant soil types here, which distinguish Barolo from the lesser surrounding areas. Compact and fertile Tortonian sandy marls define the vineyards farthest west and at higher elevations. Typically the Barolo wines coming from this side, from La Morra and Barolo, can be approachable relatively early on in their evolution and represent the “feminine” side of Barolo, often closer in style to Barbaresco with elegant perfume and fresh fruit.

On the eastern side of the region, Helvetian soils of compressed sandstone and chalks are less fertile, producing wines with intense body, power and structured tannins. This more “masculine” style comes from Monforte d’Alba and Serralunga d’Alba. The township of Castiglione Falletto covers a spine with both soils types.

The best Barolo wines need 10-15 years before they are ready to drink, and can further age for several decades.

Responsible for some of the most elegant and age-worthy wines in the world, Nebbiolo, named for the ubiquitous autumnal fog (called nebbia in Italian), is the star variety of northern Italy’s Piedmont region. Grown throughout the area, as well as in the neighboring Valle d’Aosta and Valtellina, it reaches its highest potential in the Piedmontese villages of Barolo, Barbaresco and Roero. Outside of Italy, growers are still very much in the experimentation stage but some success has been achieved in parts of California. Somm Secret—If you’re new to Nebbiolo, start with a charming, wallet-friendly, early-drinking Langhe Nebbiolo or Nebbiolo d'Alba.
