2003 Barolo Pressenda, Marziano Abbona
On the nose, this suffer some from this hot vintage - it is big, thick and warm with notes of Cherry Heering, burning wood, hard cherry candy, asphalt and sweet violets. A bit overripe. Rather deep though. Warm.
The taste is more structured and more harmonious than the nose with ripe black cherries, dried mushrooms, sweet rosehips, warm gravel, liquorice and balsa wood. A long, warm, compact finish. The taste is pretty good but the nose is slightly cooked.
