Barolo Fossati Giacomo Borgogno 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2008 Barolo Fossati is my personal favorite thanks to the stunning aromas that emanate from this wine. I find those mineral notes absolutely divine, they are chalky without being dusty and so finely etched and chiseled overall. They help pull the aromas straight up and out of the glass and are soon followed by more substantial notes of pressed blue flower, licorice, cola, tar and dried ginger. It offers a vertical aromatic delivery, in which each descriptor is pulled from the bottle like a chain of pearls, rather than a horizontal delivery in which all the perfumes hit you at once. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2030...95"WA 06/2013
