Simple but pleasant entry level Barolo here, with basic dusty red berry fruit and firm tannins. Drink now or hold....

A nice, medium to light-bodied Barolo with fruity and berry tastes. Refreshing and not heavy and goes well with steaks and smoked meat. Very pleasant to drink. Has a nice long finish that lingers in your mouth. Love it.

Well it's certainly nebbiolo but I'm not sure it's very Barolo. Floral nose but it's missing the tarry guts one expects. Medium body (light for a Barolo) and some decent fruit Plenty of tannin though I wouldn't necessarily cellar this much. I think this it ready to go. I quite liked it. Of course it would cut though a rich steak but this would be outstanding with a plate of Italian meats; Bresaola, Prosciutto etc. A tad overpriced.
