Mirafiore Barolo 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): Smoke, tar, incense and leather all take shape as the 2008 Barolo opens up in the glass. The mid-weight personality of the vintage comes through, but at the same time, there is an attractive juiciness that gives the 2008 a level of approachability that is unusual in a young Serralunga Barolo. Sweet floral notes add lift and creaminess on the finish. Drink: 2013-2023. (May 2013)

An elegant red, exhibiting flavors of cherry, tobacco and underbrush, matched to firm tannins. Dry and lean, yet long and harmonious overall. Best from 2016 through 2030.

Inky black at first, yielding little beyond its tart, tarry fruit, this mellows with air into a fat and fleshy nebbiolo, still youthfully dark and impenetrable. Give it a few years in the cellar for the fruit to gain detail.
