Heiner Lobenberg über:
Barolo Sperss DOCG 2015


Lobenberg: Schwarzrot und glänzend. Enorm dichte, drückende Nase nach schwarzen Kirschen, Erde und Trüffeln. Sehr körperreich und wieder sehr druckvoll am Gaumen, vielschichtig und komplex. Große Fruchtkonzentration und hoher Glyzerinlevel, sehr extraktreich, sattes Tannin, die lebendige Säure verschwindet dahinter. 97-98+/100


Parker über: Barolo Sperss DOCG

-- Parker: In the 2015 Barolo Sperss, you can taste the iron rust and minerality that is so specific to the soils of Serralunga d'Alba where this wine is born. It is very bold and represents the more powerful of these two wines from Barolo. Cerequio is always the more floral, while the Sperss has an immediate cherry and some lingering, bold, blackberry aromas that make a strong impact. However, this wine does not have the austerity of a classic Barolo. Instead it shows a richer texture and it casts a wider net of flavors. Serralunga d'Alba fruit is marked by stronger concentration and ripeness, with a very firm and unyielding quality of tannin that should hold the wine steady as it moves through its aging evolution. This is a truly beautiful albeit brawny Nebbiolo. 97+/100


Galloni über: Barolo Sperss DOCG

-- Galloni: Galloni: Gaja's 2015 Barolo Sperss is especially refined in this vintage, although there is plenty of Serralunga power and muscle lurking beneath. Dark and enveloping in feel, the 2015 is also shockingly approachable for a young Sperss. Smoke, gravel, licorice and dark spice develop with time in the glass, adding shades of nuance to a core of plum and black cherry fruit. Beautifully persistent and deep, the 2015 is a gorgeous wine that also perfectly encapsulates the current Gaja style that is all about understatement and finesse. 97/100


Suckling über: Barolo Sperss DOCG

-- Suckling: Very ripe strawberry and cherry aromas with undertones of flowers and cedar. Hints of fresh leather, too. Full body and round, soft tannins with lots of intensity at the finish. Round and fruity, yet always reserved. Needs time to come completely together. Better after 2022. 97/100

Jeb Dunnuck über: Barolo Sperss DOCG

-- Jeb Dunnuck: The 2015 Barolo Sperss is another smoking good 2015 that shows the sunny warmth of the vintage in its massive bouquet of blackcurrants, kirsch liqueur, red plums, Asian spices, violets, and flowery incense. It reminds me of the incredible 1997, and Barolo doesn't get any more sexy or opulent. This brilliant, full-bodied wine has ripe, velvety tannins, beautiful depth of fruit, and a great finish. It needs a solid hour in a decanter if drinking any time soon and will benefit from 5-7 years of bottle age. It should drink brilliantly over the following 25-30 years. 100/100
