When people ask me what makes a great wine, I always say balance. I think this wine sums that up. Sure it delicate and light, but it's also so balanced and graceful that you actually forget there's alcohol in it. Think Pinot Noir but with super fine grippy tannins. I know there's a lot of $20 wines out there but believe me, spend the extra $20 on this and you will understand the beauty of Barolo.
