CAVALIER BARTOLOMEO Barolo 'Altenasso' 2012

The 2012 'Altenasso' is another excellent Barolo from Cavalier Bartolomeo, which immediately opens to inviting aromatics of fresh ripe strawberries and cherries laced with dried roses, eucalyptus and dried spices, all taking shape in the glass. On the palate this beautifully showcases the characteristics of Castiglione Falletto, as it impresses with its forward style, supported with a round, silky texture and excellent overall balance. Everything comes together seamlessly with red fruits and spices lingering on and on. This showing incredibly well in its youth, and is a wonderful Barolo to approach early on.
