The 2015 Barolo Bricco delle Viole shows all the energy and linear drive that
is typical of this site, even if the wine remains a bit compact today, with less
of the generosity that it can show in some vintages. Dark red cherry, chalk,
mint and floral notes are woven throughout this expressive, nervy Barolo. the
purity of the flavors is striking. Time in the glass brings out a bit of the
mid-palate sweetness that is missing at the outset. There is so much to like in
this pretty, expressive Barolo from Marengo.
