Barolo Delight

Barolo used to be a stubborn you waited 20 years for..and if you were lucky you caught it in the day it was perfect..after that it went downhill. Nowadys..they are much more consumer friendly.

Barolo Cannubi Chiara Boschis 2001
E. Pira & Figli, Piemonte, Italy
Medium deep colour with slight ageing at the rim; trace of what I call 'brittle tannins' on the nose, funky smells; in the mouth it is dry, trace of tannins with well-balanced cherry fruit. Very good

Points 17
