94/100 'Excellent' | Cameron Douglas MS
The 2018 Barolo is produced using the nebbiolo grape to create a glorious wine, full of intense aromas of cherry and orange peel and an abundance of fine tannins and acidity to balance. A top pick.
Cameron Douglas MS writes "Classic colour and bouquet of Nebbiolo with scents of cherry and orange peel, clay and spice, roses and perfumes, dried herb and barrel spices, mineral and red apple, some moments of dried strawberry and red currant. Taut and dry, an abundance of fine tannins and a backbone of acidity combine to present a powerful mouthfeel, classic intensity and length. Well made, dry and complex with a leather note and return of the mineral clay quality."
