Vacation Wines - 2012 Barolo Acclivi, Burlotto
2012 Barolo Acclivi, Burlotto
From the master himself, Fabio, comes this 2012. From the get go, the nose show some warmth, but with air it becomes more cool and structured with notes of cranberries, earth, toasted almonds and iodine. Very deep and fine.
The taste is handsome and crisp with notes of red currants, dried strawberries, dry licorice, bakelite and paint. Very long with a fine dryness and a light intensity. A lovely wine for drinking now and the coming 6+ years. 93p (tasted 2019/07)
