Magnum Barolo DOCG Enrico VI, Cordero di Montezemolo
Magnum Barolo DOCG Enrico VI, Cordero di Montezemolo
The 2011 Barolo Enrico VI is the sweetest and most floral of the 2011s. Rose petal, cinnamon, mint, sweet red cherries and kirsch meld together in a supple, expressive Barolo that will offer a long and broad window of pure drinking pleasure. This is an unusually open Villero from Cordero di Montezemolo. At the same time, there is plenty of nuance and subtlety in the glass.
