Gianni Gagiardo ‘Serre’ Barolo DOCG 2006

Nebbiolo from Italy - Piedmont
Review Date : 30-Jun-2012
Dark hearted ruby-red colour with some garnet hues. The bouquet is full, deep and concentrated, still tightly bound and showing some restraint. Red and autumnal brown fruit aromas are lifted with a little VA, with floral, tar and savoury meat notes emerging. This is tightly packed and dense with dark brown and black, earthy fruit flavours, intermingling with tar and undergrowth. Fine, firm tannins underscore the palate and become a feature of the wine. The wine is developing some secondary characterstics, and with its tannin presence will be a wine to serve with slow-cooked game meat over the next 10-15 years. Fruit from mainly La Morra, with some Monforte, Barolo and Serralunga communes, fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged in barriques until spring, then aged in a combination of different sized casks. 18.5-/20 Jun 2012 RRP $160.00
