Barolo Batasiolo 2005

Member Review by Philip James:

Opens with dusty, chalky tannins, before giving way to blackberry and blueberry fruits. Rich and powerful, with leather and cherry flavors on a tight finish. The wine is still very young, do decant it first.

Almost a crypt, where the ancient alchemy of transforming must into fine wines is celebrated. The sanctum sanctorum in which the grapes are selected by master vintners, who then heed the boiling of the fermentation in huge oak casks. The destination of the harvests of large estates, where the grapes were delivered once upon a time on carts drawn by horned oxen, whereas now they arrive for pressing only a short time after they have been picked. The winery as it was, with the old oak casks lined up imperiously along faintly-lit corridors. The winery as it is today, adjusted to the needs of an ever more demanding and selective market, in which quality is an unforgoable constant, a pre-requisite for a flawless, stable, homogeneous product. This means state-of-the-art equipment, and access to the most appropriate technologies. The new look, which stands alongside the old rather than in its place, is one of shiny steel, and electronically-controlled, automatic processes. Past and future living together in a dynamic, efficient present capable of taking on the toughest competition in the acquisition of new markets. Read less

Leuchtendes Kirschrot. Duftend nach Dörrfrüchten, leichte Waldbodennote, Gewürzen und Eichenholz. Am Gaumen sehr feingliedrig, feine Fruchtsüsse, leicht herb und würzig zum Schluss. Sein etwas rustikaler, kräftig-feuriger Charakter ist nicht zu verleugnen, gepaart mit Finesse und Eleganz.
