Podere Rocche Dei Manzoni Barolo Vigna Cappella di Santo Stefano 2000
Nice notes of sweet spice & tea on the nose, with black cherry and some forest floor. More black cherry on the palate, with grilled meat, and some brown sugar. Sweet chewy tannins, and a long brambly finish. 90 Pts.
Classic expression of Nebbiolo. Nary a trace of oak in sight, but so well supplemented by tannins that cling like newborn child to mother. Barnyard funky rose fruit fun awaits.
Didn't appreciate this well, just because the Montevetrano was so intense. But this was lovely and light and yet full-bodied.
