Terre Da Vino 2005 “Essenze” Barolo
This is a under-the-radar barolo negotiant that deserves a bit of attention. The pricepoint is excellent for this level of Barolo. Blended from a few of the top vineyards in the region, including Bussia in Monforte d’Alba, Annunziata in La Morra, Ravera in Novello, La Volta in Barolo, Scarrone in Castiglione Falletto and Gianetto in Serralunga d’Alba.
Beautifully perfumed of ozone and patchouli, and a breeze of jasmine. Very pretty and delicate fruit and an elegant frame of tannin. The finish is of fresh roses and iron. A very good value for a Barolo.
