Bass notes in the form of licorice, tar and leather are joined by high tones of cherry and currant in this vibrant, dense and chewy red. Balanced, with a long finish driven by acidity. Best from 2021 through 2038.
The 2014 Barolo del Comune di Barolo reveals unexpected depth and layering in what is a slightly more accessible vintage. You don't need to wait ages before drinking this Barolo. The bouquet opens readily with cherry, blackberry and fragrant wild rose. The mouthfeel is direct and sharp with tangy, sour fruit on the close. This wine will flesh out and grow in volume with more cellar aging, but you could also opt to drink it in the near and medium term.
This opens with subdued aromas of crushed herb, espresso, dried rose and a whiff of camphor. On the rather lean linear, palate, coconut, toast and powdered sage notes accent sour cherry alongside assertive close-grained tannins that leave a somewhat astringent finish.
The 2014 Barolo del Comune di Barolo is a pleasant, easygoing wine with good depth for the vintage. Sweet dark cherry, plum, licorice and spice notes are pushed forward in this racy, fruity Barolo from Marchesi.
