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 2007 Barolo Garblet Sue’ is another stunning wine. This vineyard seldom yields wines without firm tannins and slightly angular contours, so the even warmth of the year is especially beneficial here. Smoke, tar, iron, roses and dark red fruit are woven together in a muscular, virile style that is striking. The finish shows fabulous intensity, drive and focus, virtually covering the tannins. It is simply dazzling. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2032.
The Wine Advocate
"Moderately saturated medium red. Classic austere Barolo aromas of black cherry, menthol, mint and dark chocolate, with a liqueur-like suggestion of the vintage. Very rich and sweet, with superripe flavors of dark berries and spices. A high-toned, rather old-style Barolo, finishing with huge but ripe tannins and a slightly clenched quality. Compared to the Villero, this seems much more dominated by the vintage. Will it hold its fruit with extended bottle aging?"
