Mauro Molino Barolo Bricco Luciani 2017

$72

This is both rich and dense, delivering plum, cherry, licorice, tar and menthol aromas and flavors. Builds nicely from beginning to end, with an aftertaste that echoes the fruit and savory themes and a dusty coating of tannins. Best from 2024 through 2040. 365 cases made, 110 cases imported.

Summary

Grape

Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo originated in Piedmont in Italy, where it remains the region's most important red grape. Its name comes from the Italian word nebbia, which means fog, a feature of the hills where the grape traditionally grows. Nebbiolo is thick-skinned, early-budding and late-ripening; it needs long periods of sunshine to ripen fully and is often planted on south- or southwest-facing hillsides for maximum exposure. The best examples come from calcareous marl vineyards, with some planted in sandy soils.
