Prunotto Barolo 2001 wine review by Billy
PB and NW and I paid about $47 for this Barolo. We then decanted it for about 5 hours before tasting it. As you'll see, it still wasn't enough time! (WOW!)
NOSE: HUGE NOSE, SWEET AND SOFT BLENDED MOIST TOBACCO, ROSE, RAISINS (CURRANTS), SMOKED CEDAR, CINNAMON??
PALATE: TIGHT (STILL!!), FISTED TANNINS WITH SEXY VANILLA UNDERNEATH THE TWISTS
Overall, this wine is still way too young to drink. Even with extensive decanting, the wine tasted young and extremely tight. The wine itself is wonderfully pregnant with possibility and promise. However, if you can find a bottle or a case, lay them down for *at least* another year if not more. Then raise a glass and enjoy enjoy enjoy because the wine with go on and on and on!.
