2017 Luigi Vico Serralunga d’Alba Barolo DOCG
Semi translucent dark red in colour with black tinged edges and a brick red hue. Fragrant scents of red raspberries and cherries infused with rose petals fill the nostrils followed by some scorched earth, dried herbs and light spicy tobacco notes. Delicious juicy red raspberry and red cherry fruits decorate the palate underscored by red liquorice, subtle earth and fresh herb infusions. Mildly tannic it finishes with some light grip, vibrant acidity and a long succulent aftertaste that shows some spice.
Very approachable now this will drink well over the next 5-6 years.
