Giovanni Sordo Barolo Gabutti 2011
Color never too bright, a lovely tone and very stable over time. Floral aromas with hints of fresh fruit and sweet spices on the palate, a quite savory, well-structured wine, with acids and tannins nicely in step; the latter stand out and tend to be sweet. IT IS a very ageable wine that after proper ageing acquires signs of its pedigree, great elegance, marked minerality and remarkable personality.
Wine Spectator This is tight, but also leans toward the dry, tannic side. The cherry, spice, tar and mineral flavors form a tight core. Fresh and long, with mouthcoating tannins. Best from 2019 through 2035. 450 cases made.
