Giovanni Sordo Barolo 2017
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
The 2017 Barolo is noted by aromas of red cherry, tar, and menthol. The palate is fresh up front with red plum and moves into more savory, iron-rich mineral tones and bitter herbs, with building structure. A solid and classic entry Barolo from the Sordo estate to be enjoyed over the next 10-15 years, drink 2022-2036.
A round red, this evokes cherry, plum, leather and menthol before the burly tannins put a grip on the finish. This is a bit jumbled now between beginning and end, so give it some time. Best from 2024 through 2038. 25,000 cases made, 3,000 cases imported.
