2010 Stroppiana Bussia Barolo (750ml)15 1 0 0
Medium ruby with orange in the rim, relatively fast-moving legs for 14.5% abv. Amazing nose of red fruit and later tar, lavas, leather, soil, wood/paper notes in the distance. Dry, high acidity, medium elegant tannin, medium alcohol and medium body. Initially slightly sweet palate followed by cherry, red fruits, leather, mixed spice, wood notes. Good length, impressive finish with chalky tannins. Balanced, modern Barolo with gravitas. Has at least another 10 years cellaring potential.
