Mauro Molino Barolo Vigna Gallinotto 2013
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
James SucklingFascinating aromas of walnuts, dark berries and hazelnuts, yet this remains subtle and complex. Full-bodied and very intense with sliced berries, orange peel and cream. Goes on for minutes. Very fine. Drink in 2020.
Wine AdvocateGallinotto is not an official cru of Barolo. The 2013 Barolo Gallinotto shows an opulent and ripe fruit profile with dried blackberry, black currant and candied cherry. That luscious fruit exuberance makes this a more approachable and versatile wine to pair with a large menu of grilled or baked meat dishes. Drink this wine in the near or medium term while that primary fruit is still fresh and intact.
