2015 Barolo Brunate, Flavio Saglietti
A new producer for me, this young Brunate is very promising. The nose is cool and seedy with notes of red currants, dried cherries, violets, iron and a hint of tobacco, very much in the Brunate character. Very, very good.
The taste is tight, wit a fine backbone and notes of rowan berries, dry licorice, iron and nutmeg. Long, dry and fine. Silky tannins. Needs 6+ years in the cellar. (The bottle got tossed out before a pic was taken...).
