This afternoon at a late lunch we were served the 2011 Giacomo Borgogno & Figli Barolo.

In the nose there was cherry, strawberry, plum, licorice, dried roses, spice, tar, ckay pot and dusty earth.

On the palate there was strawberry, cherry, raspberry, red currant, anise, spice, leather and earth.

This wine is full bodied with a smooth velvety mouthfeel medium + acidity and medium + grippy mouthcoating tannins that seemlessly move to a long red and dark fruit dusty earth finish. Definitely a nice bottle of wine and would gladly have this bottle again. We have had hot weather this week which has broke us out of the 40 and 50 degree weather. It has been definitely needed and seems to have woken everyone out of their winter malaise. I wish everyone a wonderful weekend. Please stay safe and healthy, Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Aromas of berries and dark fruits. Well balanced on the oak and tannins and have a noticeable dry finish.

Lighter as Barolos go, but great start to an evening.

Vackert ljusröd, frisk doft av jordgubbar, röda körsbär, viol. Elegant, mjuk strävhet. Kaffe och vanilj efter de röda bären.
