Marchesi di Barolo Barolo Tradizione 2013

Piedmont, ItalyThe grapes for the Tradizione Barolo come from premium vineyard sites in Castiglione Falletto, Barolo and Monforte d’Alba. The wine is blended and aged for 2 years in traditional large Slavonian oak barrels. The attack is rich and almost lush, at least as lush as a Barolo can get. The nose is open and almost a bit showy. The attack is full of bright cherry fruit, flecked with licorice, roses and even some chocolate. There’s still some tannins and acidity to resolve but this is quite modern in style. You could drink it now with roasted meats, but again we say wait a decade for a more interesting wine to grow into itself. Be patient it’s nebbiolo. Very good nebbiolo.Tasted: 02 November 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 75.99 private wine stores Producer: Marchesi di BaroloDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
