Marziano Abbona Barolo Pressenda 2012
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
Wine EnthusiastEarthy aromas of truffle, new leather, dark-skinned berry and dried herb aromas lead the nose. It's savory and full bodied, doling out crushed raspberry, juicy black cherry, ground clove and tobacco alongside solid, refined tannins. Drink through 2027.
Wine SpectatorRipe cherry and currant fruit is offset by tobacco, tea and tar notes in this elegant, densely structured red, which is tight and awkward now, but all the components are in the right place. Best from 2022 through 2040. 900 cases made.
