Rood/Rouge Barolo 'Le Gramolere' Giovanni Manzone Monforte d'Alba 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Manzones 2004 Barolo Le Gramolere reveals gorgeous notes of candied cherries spices and menthol in an elegant sweet expression of this vineyard. It offers greater freshness than the Castelletto with notable vibrancy to its generous fruit. The finish is delicate and long as ethereal aromas linger in the empty glass. The Gramolere was aged predominantly in 500 liter barrels with 15-20% of the juice seeing larger 20-hectoliter barrels. It is one of the finest wines I have tasted from this small artisanal producer. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024. 94 WA

Manzoneandrsquo;s 2004 Barolo Le Gramolere reveals gorgeous notes of candied cherries, spices and menthol in an elegant, sweet expression of this vineyard. It offers greater freshness than the Castelletto, with notable vibrancy to its generous fruit. The finish is delicate and long, as ethereal aromas linger in the empty glass. The Gramolere was aged predominantly in 500 liter barrels with 15andndash;20% of the juice seeing larger 20-hectoliter barrels. It is one of the finest wines I have tasted from this small, artisanal producer. Anticipated maturity: 2012andndash;2024.

Medium red. Exotic aromas of strawberry liqueur and red licorice. Juicy and firmly built but not particularly supple or expressive. A nicely concentrated seriously structured basic Barolo-and very Monforte. STanzer.

Fresh and floral on the nose, with bright berry and strawberry undertones. Full-bodied, yet delicate and silky-textured. Builds on the palate. A classy wine. Very well done. Best after 2011.
