The 2015 vintage in Barolo is fabulous, highlighted by lusher, richer fruit character yet still has plenty of classic Barolo structure. This 2015 Barolo from Vite Colte is a really unbelievable price for Barolo. The wine's nose is full of a complex blend of plum, smoke and leather but it is on the palate that the really jumps up and says Barolo. You can take this wine right to the table and have it with some hearty foods or my favorite would be a porcini risotto. The palate has a supple, powerful, luxurious feel to it that shows lots of rich fruit along with spice and earth, and the tannins are really well integrated. A long, vibrant finish really makes this wine a sensational drink now or for quite a few years to come.

This starts out with sour cherry, dusty plum and wild raspberry aromas and flavors. As usual, this is super easy to drink due to the fat, sweet and juicy middle and the round, succulent tannins.

It’s BACK !! Grab it while you can. Ripe and laced with tobacco and gravel flavors as well as the leather and tar. Would drink now and over the couple of years.
