Fratelli Barale Barolo Monforte d'Alba Bussia 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Earthy and full of mineral water freshness on the nose with base notes of meat, salty earth, salted plum, camphor and sour cherry fruit. A lovely mouth-feel. This opens to be fresh and clear, rich with bright and precise inner mouth perfumes of wild herbs, sour wild cherry and strawberry. The ripe tannins are soft, making this not rich or powerful but fresh and perfumed. A lovely finish is built on the fine, savory tannins and nice, spicy strawberry fruit. 91pts
