Josetta Saffirio Barolo Riserva Millenovecento48 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

2000 bottles produced A little tight, just a touch fudgy with black fruit and some attractive spice notes all wrapped up with sweet rose petals and a touch of chocolate covered orange peel. Silky on entry with soft burnished black cherry fruit that is supported by finely integrated acidity. This peaks early in the mouth and shows a hint of dryness on the midpalate that leads to a bit of a short finish. Very refined and broad on the palate but this lacks some freshness and detail. The finish shows good fruit and significant powerful tannins. There's a little sweetness here that sort of balances the dryness but it's a powerfully built wine that also shows a bit of heat. 88pts
