Barolo Gallinotto Mauro Molino 91js 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 Barolo Gallinotto shows a thorny, almost prickly personality that is rare to find in this warmer vintage. Underbrush, bramble, wild berry, mint, licorice and wet tobacco play supporting roles. The wine does an excellent job of showing the more delicate and nuanced side of Nebbiolo with a compact, streamlined feel in the mouth. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2022...91" WA 6/13 "Shaved dark chocolate with hints of blueberries and blackberries on the nose. Full body, polished, velvety tannins and a fresh, clean finish. Better in 2015...91" JS 1-/014 "Founded in 1982, Mauro Molino is a young estate that is already seeing the participation of a second generation. Father Mauro Molino works alongside his 29-year-old son Matteo and 24-year-old daughter Martina, who both caught the winemaking bug at an early age. They own 13 hectares of vines, most of which are located in the township of La Morra.
