Why is this Wine so Yummy?

Domenico Clerico Barolo 2013

From one of the Barolo Boys, it’s only fitting that 2013 has ended up as the release in the year of Domenico’s Passing. A Barolo with a great purity of darker fruit, hints of tar, and, a perfumed lift of violets. Just a lick of oak adding to the wine’s complexity. Lovely generosity and length of fruit. Long even tannins.

Vietti Castiglione Barolo 2013

Every so often a vintage comes along that is deserved of the hype. The Vietti 2013’s are stunners! At almost 1/4 the price of the Cru’s the Castiglione is a bargain! Trademark Vietti, balance, poise, a delicious backbone of fruit. Put together with a level of restraint, resulting in great harmony.

Benevilli Piero Barolo ‘Ravera di Monforte’ 2013

There’s a subtlety that Massimo builds into his wines that beautifully present the fragrant fruit of his Nebbiolo wines. Perfumed fruit matches layered dense tannins. There’s a brooding darkness to the mid-palate, hints of woody herbs and tar. Vibrant and fresh with a lick of oak to support it without interfering. In need of further time in bottle to settle. Make sure to give it some air in glass.
