2005 Barolo Gattera

2005 Fratelli Revello Vigna Gattera Barolo

2005 Fratelli Revello Vigna Gattera, DOCG Barolo

From the Vigna Gattera vineyard of La Morra, an aristocratic wine that left me blubbering and speechless, all at the same time. A glorious wine, so full of mushrooms and earthy tones, viscous yet fresh. Minerally, spicy, firm. This type of intensity can only be found in a Barolo - my goodness, this makes me so happy. And wines that make you happy are the ones you treasure and remember forever.

A wine I'm certainly going to recall with great fondness, in my education of Barolo.
