Famiglia Anselma Barolo 2000 Wine Review (NW)

Nose opens to reveal cherry, sweet spices, and an herbal tone
Lively and racy on the palate
Finish lingers with cherry, mushrooms, and earth

I think this wine is too young to drink. It is slow to open up in the glass, and keeps improving until it's gone.

The wine is interesting and lively. It's not as rich as other Barolo's, but very enjoyable. It paired extremely well with my venison and gnocchi at Mario Batali's Del Posto in New York. I paid $24 for the privelege of just one glass as this wine retails for over $50 a bottle. Raise a glass!
