Mauro Molino Nebbiolo Barolo 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Made in a fruit-forward style, this is remarkably approachable--and fantastic value--Vinification and ageing: Maceration on the skins for 8 days in steel vats with automatic sprinklers and temperature control, ageing in oak casks (60%) and French barriques (40%) for 24 months. Cellaring in the bottle for 6 months.

AWE blind tasting - diesel, real reduced veal stock where it gets kind of sickeningly intense, really sweet wood, some nice cherry fruit but really kind of simple and blah, no detail, no lift, no finish, 80-82

AWE blind tasting - a bit of VA, sweet cherry, passion fruit, kafir lime leaf, very high toned, very aromatic, a touch of diesel, a touch of brett, thick and rich up front, lots of fruit here, a bit monolithic but can’t deny the intensity of the dark cherry fruit, some mineral tones add cut, chalky tannins, could improve but seems to show quite some promise, ends with a bit of drying wood tannin, really drying 86-87

The dark ruby-colored 1998 Barolo exhibits a classic bouquet of licorice, rose petals, tar, and sweet black cherry fruit. Medium to full-bodied, delicate, and flavorful in a layered, harmonious style, it will drink well for 7-8 years.

Very ripe fruit, almost like prunes, with hints of Indian spices. Full-bodied, with round and chewy tannins and a caressing finish. Very rich. Best after 2006.

Beginning with its beautiful garnet color, this Nebbiolo is truly a gem. There is a wonderful clarity to this light-bodied wine that offers distinct aromas of cinnamon, raspberry and plum on the nose. On the palate you will find sour cherries and candied cranberries present, balanced with acidity and robust tannins. Decant this wine for 30 minutes and then enjoy.

This is tender, with plum and berry character and very soft, silky tannins. Full-bodied, but elegant and refined. Best after 2012.

Very typical, with roses, plums and lightly toasted oak. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a long, caressing finish. Best after 2007.

Piedmont sits in the foothills of the Swiss Alps, and Nebbiolo is the king of Piedmont. Truffles are an inherent flavor in the earthy side of Nebbiolo. This red is firm and food-oriented; serve alongside grilled steak and root vegetables drizzled in truffle oil.
