2017 Poderi Colla Barolo Dardi Le Rose (750ml)15
This Dardi le Rose is from a single vineyard of the same name on the hill of Bussia - historically considered one of the great Barolo crus. The vines are grown at 300 - 350 metres above sea level with a southern / southwesterly exposure on a very steep calcareous marl and sand hill that is not typical in these parts. It produces classic Barolo with profound and subtle complexity.
"Full-bodied and delicious, this opens with aromas of menthol, ripe wild berries, new leather and blue flowers. Reflecting the nose, the ripe, generous palate features cherry marinated in spirits, crushed raspberry, licorice and tobacco framed in tightly knit, noble tannins. Drink 2025–2032." 96 points - Kerin O’Keefe (Wine Enthusiast, July 2021)
