Cascina Ghercina - Barolo D.O.C.G. 2013 (87 tsomw points)
26 months matured on Slovenian oak.
In the glass an intense dark red color (light transparent)
On the nose intense aromas of blackberries, prunes and dark cherries with hints of flowers, licorice, herbs and oak.
On the palate medium / full-bodied with tight tannins (not disturbing) and medium acidity. Showing blackberries, prunes and tobacco. Nice long aftertaste. Still young but with nice potential.
Ethereal and precious, here's the Barolo D.O.C.G., a noble wine appreciated all over the world for its uniqueness and its close link with the eleven villages where the production is allowed. His notes of ripe red fruits and licorice resonate in the glass as a symphony, enveloping and warm, soft and elegant. If aged in the cellar a few more years, or if poured and left some minutes in a glass, it continues its evolution and at each sip it is a new discovery, a new emotion.
