5 Grappoli: Barolo (AIS, Parco dei Principi, Rome): Very light, clear, yet rather viscous; cherry red to start, going to garnet with time in the glass. On nose, moderately intense; very clean and elegant; delicate berries and flowers. On palate, also moderately intense and persistent, with flavours of fruit, vanilla, chocolate, tobacco; high level of smooth tannins; high acidity; high alcohol, but not hot (label =14%); did not improve with time in the glass. On the traditional side of the spectrum; expressive and elegant, nicely balanced, competently made but not fascinating. €37.
