Seghesio Barolo la Villa 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"I was completely floored by Seghesio’s 2006 Barolo La Villa, *easily the best vintage of this wine I have ever tasted*. Dark plums, cherries, violets, minerals and spices emerge from this deceptively mid-weight Barolo. The wine gains muscle in the glass; yet retains elements of *etherealness* that are quite attractive. This looks to be a rare 2006 that is accessible relatively early. *The wine’s balance, poise and sense of harmony are terrific*. This is a great effort from Seghesio. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2026." --The Wine Advocate

Refined and elegant, yet intense, this red reveals flavors of rose, strawberry and cherry, with a touch of licorice. Tightly wound, this stays firm and fresh on the long, mineral-tinged finish. Best from 2013 through 2030.

Bright, deep red. Liqueur-like raspberry, cherry and violet on the inviting nose. Sweet, pliant and lush, but with its impression of fleshiness leavened by lovely lift and floral perfume. Strong wine with excellent energy. One to buy — and to cellar.
