Classically colored with a fairly dark core in the glass and just beginning to show a bit of brick red around the rim. Sour cherry, sandalwood and fresh tobacco leaf are underpinned by leather and truffle in a nicely delineated nose that takes on a nice “tarry” halo with a few minutes of air. Archetypal, robust tannins and pretty red fruit and piney earth lay out over the palate in a long finish. Perfect for a big chunk of Chianina.

Sourced from one of the most renowned and venerated wine-growing districts in the world. The grapes undergo temperature-controlled fermentation for 20 days to enrich the wine with tannins that enable long term aging, followed by 5 years of large format cask-aging to obtain Riserva status (non-Riserva Barolo requires 3 years). From the best southern-facing hills in Barolo, this is a powerful yet exquisite wine that I recommend laying down in a cool, dark place for a decade or more. Its approachable now, but a good decant is required to get a peek under the hood. From a top-rated vintage, too (2010 98 rating, Wine Advocate).
