Rocca Giovanni Barolo Mosconi 2016
Wine structured and long-lasting color with and intense ruby red with light orange highlights; intense nose with notes of cherry, vanilla, cinnamon and licorice and sweet tobacco. Austere taste, balanced with pleasant tannins with a lingering finish and harmonious.
A shy nose at first, but if you dig deep it smacks of terroir, offering ripe red berries with hints of wet stones and the promise of a truffle note. Medium-to full-bodied with refined, tight-grained tannins and a long finish that pushes a spicy wood note to the fore for now. All in balance and focus.
