This was a relatively inexpensive Barolo on release ($30) from an excellent vintage. Solid showing although not as good as a bottle a couple of years ago. Ruby in color, clear and bright. The nose has cherries, dust and slight tar. Medium bodied. On the palate, this has some cherry fruit. Light tannins. Moderate finish. It works better with food and would make a nice meal with pasta. Probably best to drink this sooner than later.
