2005 Serralunga d'Alba Barolo

Nebbiolo is just fabulous all day, any day. Love it. And on a somewhat chilly night, I wanted to drink a Barolo. A more simple wine from Serralunga, this fulfilled all those urges. Earthy red berries, spice. While lacking the viscosity and density of great Barolo, this wine shows good typicity.

We drank this after (strong) coffee and chocolate. Sea salt chocolate, no less. Wrong for a lesser wine, but I'm amazed at how consistent the Barolos I've been drinking are. Expensive, yes, but actually worth every penny.
