La Spinona Barolo Sori Gepin 2011
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
Wine EnthusiastAlluring aromas of fragrant blue flower, woodland berry, forest floor and pipe tobacco slowly take shape in this compelling wine. Gorgeous and full-bodied, the palate delivers ripe morello cherry while licorice, cinnamon and crushed herb add depth. Polished tannins provide the elegant framework. Drink through 2026.
Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Barolo Sori Gepin shows a nice, delicate color with bright ruby hues. You might recognize a sweet, open character present in all these wines from La Spinona. This was a hot vintage. Expect smoke, tar, licorice and ash on the close.
