A fine vintage with remarkably open and uncomplicated pure fruit. Floral and fresh, forward (these are the characteristics of the vintage) with dried lavender and rosemary. A beautiful Barolo that is eminently drinkable and will develop over many years.
Rich black cherry and floral aromas, huge depth of damson and cherry fruit laced with fig, date and aged balsamic. Ripe powerful tannins, with remarkable floral characteristics and a lovely freshness for such a big wine.
This is a style England can do well; fresh and racy with mature brioche and custard mingling through lemon, apricot stone and apple. A fine and elegant sparkling wine with small and persistent bubbles.
