Schiavenza Barolo Prapò 2005

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

AWE blind tasting - jammy raspberry, sweetish, kind of fruity, a nice iron and peppery note, with a black spice at it’s core, a bit flabby acid, nice and crisp texture, cool fruits restrained and balanced, nice purity to the black fruit flavors, good intensity builds with black fruits on the finish, with a long menthol laden finish, a bit rustic but I like, vitamins on the finish 90-91
