Took a while to come around but that black licorice finally started to show. Funny enough I don’t like the candy form but love the wine version.

New modern. New old school? I dunno. It’s good. It’s rich, yet elegant. It’s Nebbiolo.

(Tasted at "Del Posto", La Festa del Barolo Masterclass Tasting)
One of my personal Top5 WOTD was Chiara Boschis' 2013 Barolo. Blended with fruit from Barolo (Terlo & Liste), Monforte d'Alba (Mosconi & Ravera) and Serralunga d'Alba (Gabutti & Baudana). I find this Barolo amazing since 2010, when it was first blended, but carried on the name "Via Nuova" (which was earlier a synonym for the "Terlo" MGA, from which the Barolo was made before). In every of these vintage Chiara imho managed to made an ultra high quality wine with the nuances of the vintage and a use of barrique how I love it. So the 2013 comes across very beguiling with tons of dark red fruit, red flowers and plenty of tannins. Sexy & elegant (less than the "Cannubi" though) but still a brawny powerful with a wine with muscles.
