The mouth has good correspondence to the nose, a tannic attack and however balanced by alcohol, full body, intense flavors, pleasing crispness.

Assaggio effettuato in un'enoteca in occasione di una serata a tema dedicata al Piemonte e ai vini di Nadia Curto.
Ho apprezzato maggiormente la "schiettezza" di questo Barolo che ricorda quelli tradizionali ma con un tocco di modernità che non guasta, con l'eleganza del Nebbiolo che si esalta nella sua tipicità.
I profumi sono prevalentemente orientati verso i frutti rossi (ciliegia e prugna in primis) e una bella violetta, con un tocco, per così dire, di femminilità nel tipico carattere maschio del Barolo. Anche i toni "speziati" sono garbati e piacevoli.
Al gusto è molto equilibrato: la vena acida e fresca del Barolo si sposa con la morbidezza del legno, alcol giusto senza eccessi. Un Barolo che chiama a continui assaggi senza appesantire o affaticare.
