Marchesi di Barolo Barolo 2017
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
|Brand||Marchesi di Barolo|
The 2016 Barolo has more brooding aromatics compared to the Barbaresco, with tar, pine, and dried red plum. There is tart red fruit up front on the palate and sour cherry, tea leaf, orange zest, and dusty tannins on the back end. Drink 2024-2040.
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.
An elegant Barbaresco which shows morello cherries, treacle tart, dark plums and lavender. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish.
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.
