Marchesi di Barolo Barolo Tradizione 2015

Piedmont, ItalyThe grapes hail from the top hillside sites in the small communities of Castiglione Falletto, Barolo, and Monforte d'Alba. The soils are medium rich with a mix of quartz and sand that appear to help build intensity from the hand-picked grapes. After a standard fermentation and a malolactic ferment in concrete, the wine spends two years in traditional large Slavonian oak barrels. After bottling, the wine spends several months in the bottle before release, readying it for long life in cellars worldwide. 2015 is beautifully aromatic with notes of wild roses and black cherries. There is even more intense black plum streaked with licorice and light hints of mint on the palate. Approachable now, but there is no rush to drink this for a decade.Tasted: 31 October 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 59.99 BCLS AB 61.95 select private retailers PEI 65.99 PEILCC Producer: Marchesi di BaroloDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
