Barolo, 2015, Garesio, Italy
A glorious, Barolo made from grapes grown in the perimeter rows around Garesio's two cru vineyards, Cerretta and Gianetto. If the glorious wafts of scented roses and violets with porcini hints don't immediately make themselves present, decant. It has an almost ethereal, silky texture and fine-boned tannins and a mineral streak.
Sharing vineyards with Giacomo Conterno and Altare, their cellar is located between their two cru sites. They farm organically, but as the sites both border non-organic neighbouring vineyards, they do not declare it. All wines are vinifed and aged in the same way so as to best express their identity and terroir.
