Barale Barolo di Bussia 2019


Lots of vibrant rose petals, Kirsch, aged balsamico di Modena, orange oil, and some cooling, stalky, peppery herbaceousness. If you will, you can smell tannins, and the palate lives up to it with tightly-knitted, dense tannins meet bright blue fruits and purity. Compact and understated at the moment, an affirmation of an exceptional vintage that will keep improving in the next 30 years!
