Cavallotto Barolo Riserva Vignolo 2004

2004 Cavallotto Barolo Riserva VignoloDeep, almost opaque garnet-ruby core with a light ruby-orange rim. Floral, macerated red berries, dried mandarin peel and leather on the nose. Dry, quite robust, sappy and tannic on the palate with quite a fair bit of wood, black fruit flavours and a touch of leather. A nice sweetish aftertaste surfaced, giving this an extra brownie point to counter its youthfulness. Medium plus acidity and length. Not quite ready to drink yet but there’s an appealing freshness in this wine.
