Community Tasting Note

  • Bam_Man Likes this wine: 93 points

    January 27, 2015 - Very pretty and aromatic, with gorgeous notes of spice, flowers and pine forest on the nose. Full-bodied and rich, but silky in texture. Big and chewy, offering a tangy mouthful of ripe cherry and strawberry fruit, with plenty of chocolate, oak and licorice on the long, mouth-puckering finish. A big, powerful Barolo that manages to display a surprising sense of elegance. Still needs a bit more time though for the tannins and oak to fully integrate. Paired very nicely with Kerry's pork ragu.
    50+5+13+17+8=93

    I sometimes see a score like you have (50+5+13...) Where can I find a description of what the different numbers mean? Thanks.
