Silvio Grasso Barolo Ciabot Manzoni 2004

Silvio Grasso, Barolo, Ciabot Manzoni 2004 This is a very ripe Nebbiolo, giving a sense of New World fruitiness intertwined with new oak and traditional black licorice. In the mouth it is tannic for sure, yet not austere, actually approachable now. That said, I would let this hide in the cellar for the next 5 years, then treat it to a pairing with your favorite strongly-flavored cheese.

It isn’t everyday that one finds such ripeness in Barolo – savor it. Estate bottled in La Morra 14.5% purchased for $71.99 at Bottle Barn
