Cordero di Montezemolo Barolo Vigna Enrico VI 1978

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Intensely minty and rose petally on the nose with a strong note of what appears to be slavonian oak. A new botte in 78? There is plenty of fruit here even though the aromas of red currant and rosehip have to fight through the spice. On the palate this is wonderfully focused, clear and precise with minerally toned flavors of dried red currant supported by fine , if slightly austere tannins and well integrated acidity. Certainly youthful, and while this is superbly balanced and totally in my style it does seem to be just a bit simple. A wine that should continue to improve in the cellar but I doubt this will ever be truly great. 90pts
