2011 Barolo Arborina, Mauro Veglio
It was almost three years ago I last drank a bottle of this fine Nebbiolo. During those years it has become more focused and the fruit more concentrated. The nose is deep and structured with notes of sour and sweet cherries, asphalt, forest floor and a hint of shoe cream. Very fine.
The taste is taut and racy with notes of fresh mushrooms, ripe cherries, licorice and rosehips. A long finish with some still perky tannins. Lovely. 3+ years.
