Boroli Barolo 750ML
Boroli the bouquet is elegant with hints of red mature fruits, leather, tobacco and sensations of oak, while on the palate the powerful structure emerges with a long persistent finish. It is a long-tasting wine matured in cask and barrique for 24 months and refined in bottle for 18 months. Serving temperature is 19-20°C and it is served with read meats, ripe-strong cheeses. It is excellent also after meal.
Boroli’s Barolo is the product of a very tough vintage. The estate’s parcels in Cerequio and Villero – which are usually bottled separately – were both victims of hail. Boroli ultimately decided to blend the best of their fruit into a single bottling. For that effort, Boroli has been rewarded with a gorgeous wine endowed with serious weight. Licorice, tobacco, smoke and camphor are some of the notes that are layered into this expressive, nuanced Barolo. Intense layers of flavor build to a rich, powerful finish. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.
Score: 91. —Antonio Galloni, October 2012.
