Country: Italy, Piedmont
Tasting Notes: This is a classic expression of Nebbiolo that will appeal to people who want the complexity and depth of aged Nebbiolo without too much extra hassle or intellectual effort. The 2015 Barolo Tradizione is a subdued wine with direct, clean lines followed by pretty tones of wild berry, dried cherry, licorice and balsam herb. I noticed an evident menthol-like signature in most of these new releases from Marchesi di Barolo, and you immediately sense it here too.
Varietal: 100% Nebbiolo
