The 2006 Franco Molino Barolo is light bodied, integrated wine, with nice aromas of cherry, liquorice and wood. It is very tannic (decant for more than 2 hours) and the finish is long and tight. It should be cellared for at least 3 years to allow the tannins to subdue and perhaps allow more of the complexity to shine; can be enjoyed 2015-2025. My impression: NOTHING SPECIAL, due to being too tight (and I love tannins), 88 pts - Not a recommended buy as recently I have tasted several other Barolos or Barbarescos that were cheaper and far better - check out Terre Del Barolo Monvigliero Barolo 2004 (97535) or Pelissero Barbaresco 2007 (214551). Tasted August/11.
