Gaetano d'Aquino Barolo 2006

Member Review by RandyFisher:

Red fruit and wood on the nose. Undecanted it showed a little tartness, some smoke and a lot of french oak. An hour and a half in the glass some acidity developed along with a grippy tannic finish. Hoped this wine would improve on the second day but alas it got worse. Life is too short to drink crappy wine, down the sink it went.

The label is named after the company’s founder, a Sicilian immigrant who went into the wine business once he moved to the states.

High acidity which helps to bring out the flavours. Herbs, smokey and anise. Long pleasent finish.

Definitely taste the cherry, mildly syrupy. Lovely wine.
