ITALY - Guido Porro 2012 Barolo Gianetto
Winery : Guido Porro
Gianetto is a recent addition to the Guido Porro Barolo range. It represents amazing value for a wine of this top nebbiolo region.
Importer notes: '...in recent vintages has made a pliant, expressive and delicious Barolo... open and aromatic wine; spices and florals dominate the initial waft out of the glass alongside lovely red fruits - more cherrry... The palate is similarly open and generous, showing off the red fruits and spice elements within a demure, supple texture.' When young, even the very best Barolo can be enigmatic with very firm (but fine) unyielding grip. What impressed me about this wine was its immediacy, yet complexity, and sheer enjoy-ability, right now, but always with food.
