Altare Barolo la Morra 2000

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Offering up lovely notes of spiced black cherries, with hints of integrated wood, tar, licorice and antiseptic. This is perfumed and rather focused on the nose, gaining notes of mint, flowers and a touch of clove studded orange peel with time in the glass. Silky and bright in the mouth, with lovely depth and lots of polished fine-grained tannins, this is easy to drink with good length and richness, though it is a bit on the simple side. Air brings out the chocolate oak influence and dusty tannins on the finish that seem a little clumsy after the silkiness of the palate. 88 points

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

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.
