2008 Barolo, Fratelli Martini Secondo Luigi


2008 Barolo, Fratelli Martini Secondo Luigi
A completey umknown producer, and from their website is seems like a large scale operation. So I had my doubts... But - the nose is light and pleasant with notes of red cherries, smoke, undergrowth and mushrooms. Has a nice Nebbiolo character, albeit light.
The taste is cool amd nice with notes of dried flowers, red currants, smoke and gravel. Not a great wine but a decent Nebbiolo that has a few years from full maturity.
86p   (tasted 2020/03)
