Fragrant and delicious this gorgeous wine opens with inviting aromas of rose sandalwood camphor and perfumed berry alongside whiffs of truffle and French oak. The full-bodied palate combines elegance and structure featuring ripe Morello cherry crushed raspberry licorice and a dollop of vanilla alongside firm refined tannins. It's already tempting but hold for more complexity. Drink 2024?2032.
Opulent and very sexy with perfume cedar dried flowers and dried strawberries and just a hint of nutmeg. It?s medium-to full-bodied with round and finely velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. So seductive. Drink after 2025.
The 2017 Barolo Le Vigne is rich pliant and so expressive. Even so I imagine it will need a few years to open up fully. Bright red fruit rose petal blood orange and spice give the 2017 its distinctly red-toned profile. Elegant and translucent the 2017 is very nicely balanced. Vineyard sources are Baudana Villero Vignane and Merli. (Drink between 2025-2037)js
