Mirafiore Barolo 2008
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)
External Reviews for Mirafiore Barolo
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.
