Friday Dinner Barolo - 1993 Barolo, Valfieri

It was quite some time since I opened a Barolo for Friday dinner. That sort of ignorance can´t go on forever, so here is a Barolo for Friday dinner!

1993 Barolo, Valfieri
Popped and poured, and it needed some time in the glass to come around. But when it did, fine notes of sweet/sour cherries, hard cherry candy, dry liquorice, birch sap and a moist forest floor emerges from the glass. Mature but not overly so. Medium deep and fine.
The taste is dry, mature and structured with notes of dried cherries, bonfire, rosehips, dried flowers and undergrowth. Some dry tannins that effectively cleans the palate. Long and with a fine warmth. This I like.
88p   (tasted 2015/10)
