We opened this wine at 12 years old on November 2016, at the end of its recommended drinking window (2010-2016).
Although initially worried we’d missed the boat, we were relieved to find an elegantly developed drink.
Winner of a bronze world wine award from Decanter in 2011, this Barolo is a translucent garnet with wide and even legs. The aromas are heavenly – all dried roses, cherries and dusty violets.
The palate is dry with good acidity and the most perfect of subtly strained tannins. Flavours include more dried flowers and cherry with a scraping of tar, some intense minerality and a long finish.
Harmonious and stunning, this wine is super slender and gorgeous. Drink now if you’ve got any.
