...a super-classic profile of tar, roses, raspberries and licorice, all wrapped around a firm core of tannins. Fresh and vibrant throughout, the Barolo impresses for its superb balance and poise.
Sweet and spicy, displaying a viscous texture that envelops the cherry, menthol and allspice notes. Firm, upright tannins on the finish keep this honest, and the spice lingers, along with notes of mineral.
Sweet but lower-toned aromas of mocha and nuts. Powerful, broad and rich, with a plush texture to the flavors of plum, coffee and mocha. There's something distinctly old school about this wine and yet there's a pliancy to the middle palate.
The nose is jam packed with strawberries, spice, and flowers. The palate is full and very soft with round tannins. Strawberries, dried flowers, and chocolate notes on the finish.
Alluring sweet violet aromas. Very dry finish. Painfully dry and tart at the moment – like pure walnut skin!...There is some purity here.
