Mirafiore Barolo 2013
Intense aromas of perfume and sweet Indian incense, fresh oranges and generous cherry fruit on the palate, give way to powerful but well-integrated tannins. A wine with great ageing potential.
Rose, garden berry, botanical herb and new leather aromas emerge on this elegant wine. Savory and smooth, the bright palate presents Marasca cherry, cinnamon, anise and mint while polished tannins frame the lingering finish. It's already accessible but will also age well for the midterm. Enjoy through 2023.
The 2013 Barolo impresses for its purity of fruit and its seamless integration. There are no rough edges here and the wine glides clean over the palate, leaving a long and silky impression. Wild berry fruits and light touches of toasted spice add to the intensity. Smoke and crushed flint make for pretty contouring.
Aromas of cherry and sweet tobacco follow through to a medium body with firm and slightly astringent tannins that need some time to soften. In the end, linear and classy. Nice combination of fruit and fine tannins. Drink or hold.
