He called it a"vintage to celebrate"stating that Barolos resulted in“vibrant wines with red fruit flavors, showing balance.”and concluded how 95 Point review, saying that it was"just a proper classic vintage."
Aging: Slavonian oak barrels for 2 years.
Tasting Notes: 100% Nebbiolo. This Nebbiolo, often compared to a precious garnet stone, exhibits a velvety texture, high tannins, powerful notes of cherry, plum, and violet with sweet spices of tobacco and cocoa, and aging notes of white truffle. This is the perfect Nebbiolo to pair with fresh game, red meat, and mature cheeses.
The exuberant nose really builds with dried cranberries, candied redcurrants, tons of incense, tea leaves, asphalt, tar, and rose perfume. Very powerful with spear-like tannins and cutting acidity. Full-bodied, very long, and chewy. Drink from 2024. ~95 James Suckling
