Heaven in a bottle. I took this to a restaurant, and the waitress who opened the wine immediately said that it ‘smelled so amazing’. On the young side, still, but what a great wine. Floral and pretty with violets and roses, earth, a touch of balsamico perfume. Meaty and with plum and cherry fruit that just doesn’t quit. I was trying to figure out whether it was a modern or traditional style of Barolo, and I decided it was right in the middle. Nice fruit, but still restrained and finesse driven. This one has it all. Great freshness, pretty fruit, long finish, solid structure, a nose to die for, and plenty of aging potential. If you own some of these, you’ll be happy when you decide to open one.
