Sordo Villero Barolo 2017
Villero cru from Castiglione Falletto needs no introduction for wine lovers. It’s been the source for Giacosa’s and Vietti’s flagship wines and arguably makes the most complete wine in Sordo’s line-up from the 2017 vintage. It unveils a darker fruit profile of dark cherry, plum, and blackberry, but all fresh and crunchy. Vibrant rose, violet scents, and a savoury bundle of dried oregano, marjoram, and hay. A perfume to be bottled and sold! Seamless flow on the palate. Plenty of dense, chalky tannins coat the palate, tightly woven with dark fleshy fruit and salivating acidity. Long, energetic and delicious!
