Vallebelbo Barolo 1999 wine review by (PB)
This inexpensive Barolo (inexpensive by Barolo standards) is not your classic Barolo which is I suspect why it was only $30 at Sam's Club.
It shows some age with fresh sweet cherry aromas permeating the room--perhaps is best attribute. In the mouth this wine, again, shows its age although for a Barolo, 8 years old is still neo-natal. It is a bit hot, and yet it is tasty but not a good example of the wine. I'd pass on it and raise a glass of something else.
