There were 3 categories: DOC Regular (Normale), DOC Riserva, and DOC Riserva Speciale. Two years of aging in cask and 13% alcohol was required by all thre... Read More

  • Giacomo Brezza & Figli Barolo 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Wild raspberry wafts from the glass along with aromas of licorice, tar, hints of woodsmoke and tree bark. Moderately rich in the mouth, this is bright and taut with soft but abundant tannins and lovely red fruit on the mid-palate. Nice follow though and a very classic profile.

The ripe tannins are supportive and there is a ... Read More
