Roberto Voerzio Nebbiolo Langhe DOC Nebbiolo Delle Langhe Croera Fossati 1999
The nose is just amazing; it seems to combine the black fruits of perfectly ripened grapes with a beautiful liquorice note, as well as new sawn wood from it's recent oak aging. Again, the wine is structured, concentrated, and packed with a massive depth of flavour into a long finish. The liquorice note seems to be a feature of this particular vineyard, and it's one I like very much indeed. Outstanding wine.
Opulence at its silkiest and most seductive, this is a superb Barolo with a flower filled nose with as pretty an aroma as I've ever sampled from a wine, some gentle spices and hints of coffee and chocolate complete a fabulous nose. The mouth feel is just gorgeous and alive, very delicate but still packing flavour and with fine tannins and a fine fruity mix in the mid palate. Can't think of many better Barolos from 1999.
