Decanted for 3 hours. Beautiful, bright red cherry, rose petals, some mushroom, tar and wet leaves on the nose. Dark and powerful. I've never used the word autumnal in this context but might as well here. On the palate expansive with polished and silky yet strongly gripping tannins that really caress those who love a lot of structure in their wines. While the tannins are doing their thing there is plenty of dry, savory, juicy fruit along the whole way, with some fitting wood notes. Mouthfilling, more full than medium bodied, and quite masculine, despite La Morra's reputation as a source for feminine Barolo. Really stylish and pure with some delicious tartness towards the finish. Really balanced all the way with proper airing, though ideally should be aged a couple more years. I now see paying three years ago a whopping 17 € for this which pretty much makes it the best Nebbiolo QPR I've come across.
- It's balanced with a medium/full body with a medium finish - Nose was a little different when first opened but then fairly typical Barolo with cherry, tar tobacco. Fairly smooth tannins. This wine is quite good at this price point. Should improve with age.
