Barolo Week @ Eataly - light-bodied, translucent garnet color, a little hot in the glass for me at room temp. Red cherries, red currants with noticeable tannins that have yet to soften (it is a bit on the earlier side for for drinking). Neither muscular nor feminine but may need more time to become more refined.

Tart cherries, tar, grey gravel and dusty florals. Absolutely decant (or wait another 5 years.) Tannins are forward w acid but dissipate pleasantly.

Nice acidic and tannic Barolo with some red fruit. Neatly balance and good pairing with black truffle pasta.

This Barolo reminded me of a good friend who knows when to listen and when to step in and make it count. Delicious. subtle, and a candle on the cake for Mother’s Day.

Paired wonderfully with steak, not overpowering the meat. Low tannins and acidity, ended with a nice spice note. No berry punches either. A great find for less than 20 euros!
