  • 2003 Cavalier Bartolomeo Barolo Solanotto – Altenasso – Italy, Piedmont, Langhe, Barolo (2/23/2018)
    WIML90

    Tasted double blind.

    Garnet color in the glass, a little dusty looking. Nose of tea, green peppercorns and iron. Flavors of red berries, tart red cherries and strawberries. Tart acidity, drying tannin, medium to full bodied. Drink now with air to open up.

    My guess was this is a Nebbiolo based wine from the Piedmont region in Italy, likely a 2007 Borgogno Barolo. (90 points)
