Marziano Abbona Barolo 2011
Made from grapes cultivated in Perno, a village between Monforte and Serralunga d'Alba, this Barolo has a wonderful elegance to its bouquet, good strength, and excellent alcohol. A classy and pure Barolo, never aggressive but graceful with a nice drinkability. As per all our 2011 Barolo labels, despite the summer heat, in the mouth it shows both a good acidity and a warmness brought by the alcohol, around 15%vol. There's a harmony of avors in which the fresh and sapid side prevails on the softness. Aromas are not yet complex but herald seductive hints of blonde tobacco and young violet. Pleasant right now and in continous improvement in bottle for at least 15 years.
