Parusso Barolo 2012
Made from Nebbiolo grapes from vineyards cultivated in Monforte d’Alba and Castiglione Falletto villages. The classic Barolo is released as Armando Parusso had, not separating the single vineyards, but combining them in one unique blend.
VinousParusso's 2012 Barolo is soft, supple and forward, with gorgeous aromatic lift throughout. Sweet red cherry, plum, rose petal and lavender flesh out in a gracious, mid-weight Barolo that is already quite expressive. This is a striking entry-level Barolo from Marco Parusso.
Wine EnthusiastThis opens with aromas that recall weedy underbrush, crushed dill, camphor, saline, hay and a hint of orange rind. The evolved palate offers roasted coffee bean, licorice and a confectionary note but it lacks fruit richness. Astringent but fleeting tannins dry out the finish.
