PIO CESARE BAROLO - 2000
14% alcohol. Made from Nebbiolo grapes.
Transparent red, amber color with brown edges on the rim. On the nose, asphalt and heavy oak. Black currants and black cherries dominate the palate with black cherry candy on the finish. Smooth, with good weight and balance.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
A very good Barolo but the entry price for this wine might make it a tough one to recommend. I'm a big fan of Pio Cesare although I yearned for a bit more complexity from this effort.
