Mauro Molino Barolo (DOCG) 2015 (Italy: Piedmont) (ID# 3411)

Name Mauro Molino Barolo (DOCG) 2015 (ID# 3411)
Varietal Nebbiolo
Region Italy: Piedmont
Notes "The 2015 Barolo is a slightly more subdued and downplayed expression of Nebbiolo from a vintage that generally unleashes the explosive and exuberant side of the grape. In Mauro Molino's version, the fruit is contained and packaged in neat little aromatic compartments, starting first with wild berry and moving successively to rose, spice, leather, dark licorice, tar and cigar. You'd do well to highlight those subtleties by serving it with some delicate crackers and goose liver pâté." (Wine Advocate)

Additional Notes

"Austere in aroma, this red offers cherry, menthol and white pepper flavors. Elegant and vibrant, with well-mannered tannins lining the finish. Shows fine balance and length. Best from 2021 through 2033. 3,200 cases made." (Wine Spectator) "A more savory edge to the nose with tar and walnuts across dried roses and red berries. The palate delivers a succulent, focused and flavorful, red-cherry core with smooth tannins framing it neatly." (James Suckling)
