A very interesting and long aging Barolo from Castiglione Falletto. The color is intense amber-red. The smell is balanced and pleasant, with plums, underbrush and minerals. The taste is wonderfully sweet on entry, then powerful with strong tannins in the middle palate and with a very long finish.
This wine can combine with every dish (except sweets), going particularly well with meat dishes and dry mature cheese.
"The 2006 Barolo Garblet Sue’ is massively tannic and powerful. As always, it is a taut, sinewy Barolo, but in 2006 the Garblet Sue’ is even more backward than is typically the case. Bright red fruit, smoke, tar, incense and iron are just some of the nuances that come together in this focused, potent Barolo. With air the frame fills out to some extent, but patience is the key. Brovia’s Garblet Sue’ is made from the Bricco Fiasco vineyard, just up the hill from the winery. Anticipated maturity: 2021-2036. "
