Giacomo Borgogno Barolo 2013
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
The Barolo Classic Borgogno is made by the combination of the grapes coming from five of the most prestigious vineyards of the Barolo area: Cannubi, Cannubi San Lorenzo, Fossati, Liste, San Pietro delle Viole. This is not just a Barolo, it is much more. It fully reflects the elegance and the power of a real Barolo from the Village of Barolo. We don't want to recommend a "perfect" food - wine pairing, because everyone has personal ideas and tastes. We know better who you should have this wine with, anyone!
This boasts tantalizing aromas of violet, iris, perfumed berry and aromatic herb. On the radiant, elegantly structured palate, tight refined tannins support juicy red cherry, cranberry, white pepper and star anise. It's balanced, with vibrant acidity. Drink 2023-2033.
Firmly in the savory camp, exuding rosemary, sage, juniper and eucalyptus aromas and flavors. Dense tannins form a solid matrix, while the finish is compact. Meaty. Best from 2022 through 2043. 2,500 cases made, 945 cases imported.
The 2013 Barolo is best enjoyed over the next few years at most. The flavors are delicate and lifted, but the fruit is a bit faded, especially for such a young Barolo. Dried flowers, herbs, mint and sweet tobacco add to the wine's ethereal feel.
