Gianfranco Alessandria Barolo 2008
Wine AdvocateThe 2008 Barolo is a gorgeous, fleshy wine built on fruit and aromatic expressiveness. Freshly cut flowers, spices and sweet red berries lead to an open, generous core of fruit. This is a beautiful wine to drink now and over the next decade. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018.
Wine SpectatorCherry, menthol and tea flavors combine in this red, which turns lean and tight on the evolving finish, where spice and tobacco accents prevail. Best from 2014 through 2024.
