Aldo and Riccardo Seghesio Barolo 2008
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
External Reviews for Aldo and Riccardo Seghesio Barolo
Good full red. Sexy, ripe aromas of currant, underbrush and licorice. Broad, sweet and open-knit, with nicely concentrated, lightly saline berry and licorice flavors. Shows much gentler tannins than the 2008 La Villa, and finishes juicy and persistent. This would make a good Barolo by-the-glass pour for a restaurant.
The 2008 Barolo is impressive in this vintage. It bursts from the glass with tons of richness and concentration for the year. Dark red fruit, flowers and licorice wrap around the insistent, powerful finish. The fleshy, radiant finish is unusual for the year. This is one of the best Baroli readers will find for the money. I loved it. Anticipated maturity: 2016–2028.
