    Varietal: Nebbiolo

    Style: Smooth & Supple

    Item no. 120707

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Ruby red with orange reflections. Intense with notes of ripe currants and raspberries accented by hints of truffle and violet. This wine is elegant and balanced with good body and persistent sweet tannins. Pairs well with pastas in ragu sauce, red meats and aged cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    An intense, ripe raspberry core provides the foundation for floral, licorice, tobacco and mineral elements. This is pure and racy, yet also lean and sinewy—a real thoroughbred. Shows terrific balance and harmony. Best from 2015 through 2029.

    Gorgeous fullness and generosity characterize this bold Barolo as do its aromas of black cherry, spice, teriyaki and toasted hazelnut. San Giuseppe presents a classic expression of Nebbiolo that is especially evident in the fine, polished nature of the mouthfeel.

    The 2007 Barolo San Giuseppe shows excellent fleshiness in its dark fruit. Shades of tobacco, licorice and flowers develop in the glass, adding further complexity, while darker balsamic notes are the last layers of flavor to emerge. This is a fairly delicate style that is likely to offer its greatest pleasure earlier rather than later. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

    So much strawberry on the nose. Perfumed and gorgeous. Full body, with a solid core of fruit and chewy tannins. Lacks a little bit of a center palate. But it should fill in nicely with bottle age. Best after 2014.

    A barolo with character and finesse. Definitely a step above.
