Baroli Barolo 2005

Member Review by grunkiejr:

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Barolo is gorgeous in its perfumed red berries, flowers and spices. This accessible, mid-weight Barolo offers tons of elegance in a delicate, accessible style. The tannins could use a touch more polish, but bottle age should help. The overall balance here is commendable at this stage. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020. This year I was deeply impressed with the wines I tasted from Boroli. Achille Boroli, whose family came to winemaking after successful endeavors in the textile and publishing businesses, runs this young property that already counts parcels in some of Piedmont’s finest vineyards among its holdings. Today the wines show more elegance and clarity than in the past, as the estate has found better balance in its vineyards, increased maceration times and introduced large, neutral oak casks, all of which are allowing the vineyard characteristics to speak with great eloquence. Boroli is clearly on the rise, and from here the only direction to go is up." -Antonio Galloni (10/2009) 92 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine: "Very aromatic, with rose, tar and dark ripe fruits. Full-bodied, with big, round and chewy tannins and lovely sweet fruit. Long and delicious, with excellent depth. Best after 2011. 2,080 cases made." –JS (9/30/2009) 91 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine: "'Bargain Barolo'. The nose of this New World Barolo offers a perfect balance of chocolate and bright red berry fruit. It tastes soft and plush in the mouth and although there’s less density here than some of the more thickly extracted Barolos, it most definitely holds its own. Drink 2015–2025." - M.L. (4/1/2009)
