Mauro Molino Barolo Vigna Gancia 2006
Wine EnthusiastLoaded with fresh oak tones (that will integrate as the wine evolves in time), this is a modern Barolo with good pulp and loads of aromatic intensity. Mesquite wood, vanilla, spice and black fruit set the stage. The wine is ripe with density and structure and will easily age 10 years plus.
Wine AdvocateThe 2006 Barolo Vigna Gancia is one of the fresher wines in this lineup. High-toned aromatics lead to ripe red fruits, sweet tobacco and flowers as this elegant, finessed wine opens up in the glass. Medium in body, the Gancia offers notable persistence and an elegant, poised close, where pretty notes of licorice make a final appearance. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2021.
