Reviews & Scores

This initially opened with a hint of reduction though it doesn't require much swirling to reveal somber notes of various dark berries, earth and an interesting smoky hint. The delicious, round and nicely detailed middle weight flavors possess good vibrancy as well as a sleek mouth feel, all wrapped in a moderately complex and nicely balanced finale. This is not particularly complex and there is a hint of warmth yet the overall effect is more harmonious than the description would suggest. Note this could easily be enjoyed now.

TASTING NOTES

Dried cherries, raspberries, tobacco and crushed flowers rise effortlessly from the glass. Delicate berry-infusions are contained within a tightly packed tannic structure. But the texture is beautifully silken. Freshness and verve are the hallmarks of this appealing vintage and this wonderful Barolo has it in spades.

TASTING NOTES

Intense aromas of blackberries and black cherries with a note of chocolate and spice. Velvety smooth on the palate with rich black fruit flavours, some notes of coffee and a touch of black pepper. Good chewy tannins to balance and lingering black fruit flavours on the finish.
