“When it comes to ease of access, as it were, Barolo from the top vineyards in Serralunga (Parafada is certainly one of them) are most often the hardest to approach as young wines. Barolo, La Morra etc. can be quite manageable, or at least they are for me, given my love of tannin. Here’s another vinous Serralunga black hole, from which it’s hard to escape, though admittedly, I’m not struggling too hard. Black cherry, framboise (liqueur), baking spices, liquorice and new leather. Full bodied, dense and packed with firm emery tannin, brooding earthy flavours, alongside fragrant tea, precise and fresh acidity, and an almost marzipan scented finish of superb length. The motor is purring, the boot is fully packed, there’s a long journey ahead, but be patient; the destination is Pleasure”.

This is a perfect medium-to-long-term cellaring proposition. If stored well it will go for 20 years, but once again, if you can’t wait that long you won’t be disappointed.
