Parusso Barolo 2012 1.5L
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
VinousParusso's 2012 Barolo is soft, supple and forward, with gorgeous aromatic lift throughout. Sweet red cherry, plum, rose petal and lavender flesh out in a gracious, mid-weight Barolo that is already quite expressive. This is a striking entry-level Barolo from Marco Parusso.
Wine EnthusiastThis opens with aromas that recall weedy underbrush, crushed dill, camphor, saline, hay and a hint of orange rind. The evolved palate offers roasted coffee bean, licorice and a confectionary note but it lacks fruit richness. Astringent but fleeting tannins dry out the finish.
