Barolo, Italy, Langhe, Nebbiolo, Piedmont, Red Wine

After the epic fail of the 2003 Remizieres Crozes, I decided to open this up. It isn’t exactly a mind blowing wine. Certainly good and pleasant. Has typicity. Shows nice red fruit, roses, earth and spice. Very mellow and nice silky texture. Medium finish rounds this one out. Good value at the sub-$30 price tag I acquired it at many years ago, but I don’t think it’s worth any more than that now. Drinking at peak right now and I don’t think it’ll get materially better. The earliest maturing wine in the Vietti Barolo portfolio by a long-shot.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
