Two Baroli From Le Strette

2013 Barolo Corini-Pallaretta, Le Strette
A very fine "tar & roses" nose with additional notes of violets, forest floor, diesel oil and dried strawberries. Complex and fine.
The taste is young and focused with polished tannins and notes of dried flowers, iron, violets and dried strawberries. A fine length. 6+ years.
94p   (tasted 2023/05)

2015 Barolo Bergeisa, Le Strette
A bigger nose in structure, yet withdrawn when it comes to individual traits, but there are notes of dark cherries, bakelite and warm rocks. 
The taste is broad and tight with rugged tannins and notes of dark cherries, asphalt and hints of tobacco. Very long. 8+ years.
91p   (tasted 2023/05)

With these two cru´s I have now tasted wines from 117 MGA`s. There are 170 MGA´s in total but 27 of them are not produced as a single vineyard wine. That leaves 143. 
26 to go...
