Percristina Barolo Nebbiolo 2007

Notes of vanilla oak, chocolate, ripe cherry and roses. Same on the medium weight palate palate with those grainy persistent tannins. Oak on Barolo doesn’t seem right but it is nice, hint of menthol. Reminiscent of fruit and nut milk chocolate - a personal favourite. Some astringency to finish off. One of the 1001 wines - bought this in Alba, Piedmont about 8 years ago. Clerico believes that prudent use of new oak can round out Barolo’s harsh edges and enhance the flavour profile. After a few hours in the decanter the tannins became typically Barolo - powdery fine and persistent. Galloni said that Percristina is the only Barolo still made with 100% new oak and is now taking a direction that increasingly stands apart from the other Baroli here. — 3 days ago
