Sordo Barolo Gabutti 2019
Out of the Serralunga d’Alba commune, here we have Barolo with an edgier expression to begin. Intense savoury and minerally characters dominate: iron and blacksmith notes, porcini as well, then straight into a tannin powered palate, yet all power to those aromatics as they remain steadfast, offering an overall rustic personality. A forager’s wine, underpinned by forest floor notes, genuinely indicative of wild, hilly country. Most captivating.
