Luigi Pira Barolo Marenca 2001
Gorgeous purity and structure. The nose has a dusty, bing cherry character that darkens to blackberries in the mouth. The longer you stay with the wine on your palate, the more it develops - cocoa and espresso notes and forest floor fruit. The tannins are refined and leave you with a lasting, bitter cherry sweetness that tingles with lingering acidity. A superb wine.
