“From a selection of vineyards in Serralunga, aged for 24 months in large oak casks. Spice, cherries, bit of aniseed, floral notes - aromatic and almost pretty, you might say. Fragrant rosy mouth-perfume, raspberry and cherry, a seasoning of orange rind, gentle chewy tannin that grips if you push it around, and then pulls grainy and firm on the finish. Aftertaste is all the charm of perfume, spice and fresh red fruits. Evolves well in the glass, and while it drinks well now with a bit of air, I’d say it’s going to shape up and improve further with a few years cellaring. It’s a lovely thing to drink.” Gary Walsh, Wine Front, Rated: 93+ Points, Tasted: September 2016, Alcohol: 14%, Closure: Cork, Drink: 2018-2028+

This is a more modern style of Barolo, that’s less extractive having spent less time on skins. Don’t fret, it’s still full of power and has all the Nebbiolo tannins and acid to age, but unlike old-style Barolo it doesn’t have to be stuck away for decades before it’s approachable. It’s good for 5-15  years in a cellar, but the great thing, unlike old-style Barolo, is that if you just can’t wait that long, it’s still great now.
