Barolo Gancia Mauro Molino 92js 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"Menthol and eucalyptus aromas lead off in this cherry- and tar-flavored red. This is rich and chewy at once, with fine balance and a light- to medium-bodied frame. Long finish. ..93." WS 4/12 "The 2007 Barolo Vigna Gancia is rather reticent at first, but then fills out nicely. Dried herbs, berries, mint and crushed rocks are woven together in a perfumed, mid-weight fabric. The Gancia shows terrific richness and freshness, not to mention considerable harmony. Flowers, mint and anise add the final layers of complexity to the beautifully articulated finish. This is a gorgeous Barolo from Molino. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022...92"WA 2/11 "Love the berry and chocolate character on the nose and palate. Full and velvety, with a juicy, fruity aftertaste. Very well done here. ..92." JS.com 5/11
