Scarpa Barolo Tettimorra 2005

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

The nose here starts out with decidedly oxidized notes and lovely hints of salame and caraway with spicy mint and herb undertones. There's an odd sweetness to the nose that recalls fishermens friend cough lozenges and sweet flowers. the nose does clean up with air but remains savory. In the mouth one is greeted by a rush of wild strawberry fruit with mint top notes that is followed by a wave of bracing acidity. Nicely meshed tannins take over on the midpalate then yield to a fine, precise strawberry/rhubarb backend that leads to a long if simple finish. Amazing freshness and acidity for a 1990. 2009-2021 90pts
