2013 Barolo, Aldo Clerico
A deep, dark nose with notes of forest floor, dried strawberries, herbs and fir wood. The fruit is coated with a large dose of new oak.
The taste is young and tight with notes of dried tomatoes, fir wood, earth and dry tobacco. Ends on a bitter oak note. This will need 8+ years to integrate the wood.
