Manzone Gramolere Barolo 2013

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  318105

This is Giovanni Manzone's headline Barolo. At 13,000 bottles made per year, production numbers are more than double the other Barolos in his portfolio, so this wine is reasonably easy to locate as a result. The 2013 Barolo Gramolere is an articulate and exuberant expression of contemporary Nebbiolo. It sees a 40-day maceration period for extra color and structure, plus 30 months aging in both botte grande and tonneaux. It reveals a dark color and medium body with black cherry, spice and licorice aromas that lift elegantly from the bouquet. Drink Date: 2018-2030. Score - 94. (Monica Larner,, Aug. 31, 2017)
