Elio Altare Barolo Cerretta 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Dark and earthy on the nose with some prune fruit aromas integrating with toasty wood, medicinal herbs, and some baking spices. This is opulent with lots of power on entry, in a focused and relatively elegant style that is absorbing the tannin fairly well. Filled with dark and slightly anonymous fruit, there’s nice weight here, if this is a touch dense, with very attractive wild red berry fruit powering through on the rather short finish. This is still simple, very tannic and chewy. 87pts
