Nutty and piney. God this baby could go for years...per tannins, alc and acid. Yet, awesome now!

Definitive Barolo. We've sold 3 different vintages of this in my restaurant since I've been there. This wine is a great pick up for the price and my favorite vintage of the three (11,12,13). Like Cab, if you give it 3-4 years you're off to the races. This wine had heavy dried cherry and some faint orange candy along with cocoa powder. The tannin and acid back and forth is like a dream. Kinda dusty/rusty but fairly smooth. Rose petal on the nose, a little bit of tobacco and I wouldn't say really any truffle on this. More tobacco vs truffle on the earth notes. I would assume this has some decent barrel influence but no barrique and no new oak. Clean minerality, leaving the restaurant writing this and can still taste it👍🏼
