Description: Right away the first thing you are struck with is the importance of this wine. The nose is slightly subdued in respect to the 2005, but only because it is a vintage that is going to take more time opening up, yet will also last longer and be a Queen at its peak. Very dark fruit, dark chocolate, and of course a hint of the 'rose' that is just going to bloom after some more bottle age. The tannins are very young and wound, but again, just a tease for what's to come. This famous "la Morra" cru is famed for its elegance and softness, as well as its normally high price tag. However, the Bocchino's tiny 125 case production of this incredible Barolo is priced at a fraction of what the other larger producers of "la Serra" are charging. Extremely limited, and if you can find it, it is in my opinion the best value Barolo has to offer.
