2013 Barolo Bricco Delle Viole, Marengo
A deep, floral nose with notes of forest floor, cherry licorice, ink and violets (!). Dark cherries. A very fine sweetness to the fruit. Complex.
The taste is tight and sandy with notes of black cherries, Langhe earth, iron and violet pastilles. Silky tannins. Very fine. 5+ years. Last tasted at the cantina in May 2017.
