Giovanni Sordo Gabutti Borolo 2013

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Notes: A vineyard planted in a so-called ‘prime category’ sub-zone which, owing to its superb characteristics, is one of the most interesting and prestigious in the municipal district of Serralunga d’Alba. A splendid colour of deeply intense garnet red with the positive presence of luminous ruby reflections bearing the promise of excellent future development and longevity. Perfectly brilliant. A noticeable development of “church windows” and tears flowing down the sides of the glass are indicative of great generosity, structure and alcoholic strength. A bouquet that is austere, noble and remarkable, as well as being very pervasive and lingering. Excellent self-assurance. Amidst the strong yet non-intrusive sensations of oak, it is possible to perceive the aroma of ripe fruit and the fragrance of mountain flowers. A slight presence of resin accentuates tones of sweet spices and peach leaves. The first’ in-mouth, sensation is one of intense heat followed by the evident presence of fine tannins tending to sweetness. A pronounced savoury flavour typical of the soil. The aromas and sensations initially perceived by the nose are confirmed and considerably intensified. A great structure, harmony and balance, combined with a lingering aromatic persistence and complexity are the incontrovertible prerequisites of a glorious longevity. Ageing: 24 months in large Slavonian oak barrels Refinement: 4/6 months in stainless steel and minimum six months in the bottle Alcohol by volume: 14.5% Vol (based on the vintage) Acidity: 5.4 g/l Sugars (Reducers): 0.3-0.5 g/l

Vintage: 2010 12/11/2014

This structured Barolo is still closed but already displays its impressive Serralunga d’Alba pedigree. It delivers crushed black cherry flavors layered with licorice, black pepper, clove, alpine herbs and balsamic notes alongside assertive but noble tannins and brisk acidity. It’s well balanced but needs time to develop complexity. Drink 2025–2045. - Wine Enthgusiast Magazine 95 Points
