6 Amazing 1980 Barolo

3. Filippo Sobrero Barolo (1980)

« Prev Next » 3 of 5
Intense on the nose with a touch of broth and a bit of celery seed revealing its evolution but those scents are quickly subsumed by rose petal, fennel seed, and cherries in alcohol aromas. This is a little coarse in the mouth, but with uncommon inner-mouth perfumes. There’s lots of raspberry and cranberry fruit here, and the bright acids and slightly astringent tannins help to keep the palate clear and brisk. With air this goes through a pretty significant transformation, turning elegant and refined in the mouth, with admirable freshness, then as the night wears on, revealing more of its evolved side. At its best this is a bit Giacosa-esque, though its window is relatively small. 92pts
