1996 Barolo La Pira Luca Roagna

Tuesday, January 15, 2019

Real Barolo once it was decanted. For me not the best expression of Nebbiolo from Roagna. The wine showed some firm tannins and a great structure reminiscent of the long maceration with the skins. The oak is definitely integrated but the wine is still sleeping. After contact with air, it finally showed iron and tar tones, which are the expected aromas. KR
