Marchesi di Barolo Barolo 2014
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
|Brand||Marchesi di Barolo|
Star anise, Asian spice, crushed herb and red berry aromas meld together in the glass. The refined luminous palate delivers crushed red cherry, tart cranberry, white pepper and clove framed in bright acidity and elegant fine-grained tannins. Drink 2018–2024.
The 2014 Barbaresco Tradizione is a nicely centered wine that offers a solid array of ripe fruit flavors with cherry and red currant in pole position. As I have discovered with other Barbaresco wines from 2014, the fruit is surprisingly opulent and soft considering the below average temperatures that persisted throughout the summer season. Those plump characteristics are followed by moderate touches of spice, tar and smoke.
An elegant Barbaresco which shows morello cherries, treacle tart, dark plums and lavender. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish.
