Garnet red. Typical, fruity, black cherries, dried rose, spicy notes. Dry, warm, full-bodied, soft, clean, sweet and well-integrated tannins, quite persistent.
What a nose to this wine. Wonderful aromas of fresh strawberries, flowers and sandalwood. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a beautiful balance of acidity and fruit. This is a clean, focused and chic wine. Hard not to drink now but will be better in 2013.
Moderately saturated medium red. Sexy red fruits, dried rose, brown spices and a hint of menthol. Velvety, ripe and deep, with bright acidity framing the flavors of red berries and spices. Wonderful Brunate perfume accentuated by the vibrancy of the vintage. Finishes fine-grained, subtle and very long, with noble tannins. Offers great early appeal but this has the balance for a slow and positive evolution in bottle.
The 2007 Barolo Brunate comes across as somewhat clenched and inexpressive in this vintage, while at the same showing less vineyard character than is typically the case. The 2007 is a reticent Brunate that only reveals its personality over a long period of time. I miss the delineation and nuance that informs the finest vintages yet there is enough perfume and inner sweetness to make me think the wine will find its balance with further bottle age. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027.
