Adelaide Barolo 2004

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

From young vines 10-15 years of age in Barolo The aromatics here are pure and expressive with classic liquory red fruits, a touch of brownie, well integrated oak and fine notes of warm drying cherries, slight medicinal/herbal tones and dark tea. This starts out big and deceptively soft then the great acids pop out and balance the well managed but important tannins. In the mouth this is a touch lighter than the Cannubi with more astringent notes and redder fruit that veers toward the lingonberry end of the spectrum but is really pure with engaging cherry notes and incipient tones of mushroom and nori. Very giving on the finish which is long and layered with leather, herbal/tobacco top notes and excellent ripe Nebbiolo tannins adding length. A complete Barolo in need of only a few years to be at it’s best 2010-2020 92pts

From 40 to 50 year old vines in Barolo Smoky and marked by woody spice this none-the-less has strong fresh nebbiolo fruit with herbal, arugula and anise notes rising above the iron rich soil and asphalt tones on the nose. Elegant and refined in the mouth with solid structure lending a bit of chewiness to the dark, dense fruit that recalls plums and dates. There is an intriguing dusty dry earthy, oily element to the palate that makes this a bit big barrel tasting but there is good structural tension in the mouth. The bracing tannins come to the fore on the finish with crisp acids cleansing the mouth. This will really need some time for the big tannins to mellow. 2012-2024 90pts

Quite raw and oaky on the nose but rich and big in the mouth with notes of milk chocolate framing the deep, slightly plummy fruit. The finish gains some spicy tones and reveals a more bitter chocolate edge with notes of apricot and spice on the final. Very nice wine, a bit unusual but balanced and certainly well made. 88pts
