Dusty nose of cherry to raspberry to mulberry character. Some licorice and slight tar. Light to medium bodied palate with slightly tannic grip, carrying acidity and quite thin fruit. All this considered the palate is quite balanced with nice stone dust and tobacco notes in the aftertaste. Mid-length. A pretty nice Nebbiolo in fact. If I pay 20€ for a Barolo, I sure as hell don't expect much of it. I liked this even if I've had far more prestigious-tasting Nebbiolo d'Albas from better producers.
Colour somewhere between brick and orange. No fruit left on the nose. After some air time, it becomes dominated by a licorice-like flavour, with only a hint of damp earth in the background. Palate is light-bodied, with no tannins, a candied/confected kind of sweetness and high acidity. Short+, somewhat heating finish. Overall, this was a weird Barolo experience; it doesn't even taste like a Barolo. Although still drinkable it seems past its prime. Flawed bottle? Hard to rate.
