The redcurrant-compote character really pops out here, before dried cranberries, licorice and spice box all come to the fore. Tannic and very expansive, sweeping through a whole array of red berries via linear acidity and wrapping itself up in a long finish.
...delivers structure, firmness and power... This is a classic interpretation of a historic cru, and the wine offers linear, crisp lines...
The sweetness from ripe plum and cherry fruit offsets the broad swath of tannins. Energetic and focused, with leather, soy, iron and tobacco accents supporting the fruit. Feels balanced...
...dark and imposing on the palate... A Barolo of size and heft... Black cherry, smoke, leather, iron, licorice, menthol and graphite notes infuse the 2015 with layers of nuance to complement its brooding, sepia-toned personality nicely. The 2015 is a beguiling Barolo.
Woodland berry, wild herbs and rose mingle with whiffs of eucalyptus and coffee bean on this focused red. On the linear, full-bodied palate, firm, close-grained tannins accompany dried cherry, licorice and an almost salty mineral note before a tight, mouthdrying finish.
...Integral vanilla-nut oak, then slate and fresh earth, savoury spice and wild-strawberry fruit. Richness of wild strawberry is beautifully balanced by brisk acidity. Firm, fine, resolving tannins are already becoming mouth-coating. In the ‘modern’ idiom, this is a classy wine. Lovely length and refinement.
