Boroli Barolo Brunella 2013
|Italy, Piedmont, Barolo
This red is a tussle between sweet, ripe cherry and strawberry fruit, tobacco and mineral flavors and dense, aggressive tannins. Still restrained today, but the long finish of fruit and savory notes shows potential. Best from 2022 through 2042. 1,000 cases made, 65 cases imported.
This is the first vintage of this new wine from Boroli. The 2013 Barolo Brunella is an austere and dry expression of Nebbiolo. Dried fruit, spice and licorice emerge from the bouquet. In the mouth, the wine is balanced, fresh and elegant. This is a very pretty cru expression with a long and clean finish.
Espresso, cedar and a hint of dark spice aromas slowly take shape on this. The austere palate delivers prune, mocha and clove alongside bracing tannins that leave an astringent, drying finish.
