Bright Ruby color with aromas of red berry fruits and floral notes. On the palate flavors of cherry and strawberry with spice, licorice and perfumed floral notes. Fine chewy tannins, medium+ finish ending with fruit, floral spice and slight earthy character. Drink now! — 3 months ago
Gallinotto is an official vineyard located within the Giachini MGA. It’s notably unique due to its exposure and soil composition relating much closer to Rocche dell’Annunziata, just a bit lower in altitude. FWIW, I have found that the Barolo of Mauro Molino get more interesting with each passing vintage; presenting a really smart value.
Popped and poured; enjoyed over a two hour period. The 2019 “Gallinotto” pours a bright garnet with a translucent core and a slightly orange rim. Medium+ viscosity with no staining of the tears. On the nose, developing with predominantly fresh red fruits: raspberries, cherries, strawberries with some pomegranate, roses, orange peel, gravely earth and gentle warm spices. On the palate, the wine is dry with sneaky high tannin and medium+ acid. Confirming the notes from the nose. The finish is long. This is a very elegant expression; juicy with a lovely, slick texture. Power is not a word I would use here but it’s very attractive. Drink now and over the next 15 years. — a month ago

Deep Ruby with aromas of ripe red fruits, sweet spice, herbs and earthy notes. On the palate flavors of juicy cherry and red plum with cacao, tobacco and herb spice wrapped in balanced acidity. Fine tannins, long finish ending with fruit, spice and earthy character. Just starting to show well but will age for next 10 years. Nice! — 6 months ago
