Just bottled the 2015 Barolo Riserva Cascina Dardi is a real powerhouse. This full-bodied potent Barolo packs a huge punch. It won't be ready to drink anytime soon that much is obvious. Time in the glass brings out aromatic intensity and inner perfume. Spice and blood orange accents lend an exotic quality to this dark layered Barolo. The Riserva is a wine for readers who appreciate the natural fragility of artisan wines wines that aren't perfect but that perfectly embody the human spirit. - By Antonio Galloni on November 2021 Brothers Alessandro and Gian Natale Fantino run one of the under-the-radar jewels of Piedmont. Their tiny winery located in Monforte's historic center is easy to miss. Once again I was quite taken with the wines I tasted. The Fantinos favor relatively long aging for their Barolos relative to today's standards so these are the current releases. Readers who enjoy classically-built old-school Barolos will find much to admire.
