Tasting Notes

You'd be Cuckoo not to buy this! That's what I told myself when I tasted this wine. A local importer who after buying this decides he's not going to buy from this producer anymore and offers us the same price he paid for it just to move it along. 1996 is a spectacular vintage, classic in character, powerful, with ripe, sweet tannins, great length and an ability to age for a couple of decades easily. This is a single vineyard production from Serralunga (the Graves like commune from Barolo) that is big, powerful, layered with spice, truffles, smoke, gravel and tobacco with a sweet chocolaty center after a few hours when the wine opens in your decanter. This wine should sell for twice the price, try it with Brasato al Barolo (Pot Roast braised in Barolo) drink now and decant or age for another decade.
