2013 Umberto Fracassi Barolo MantoettoT. Elenteny
Umberto Fracassi Barolo from the ancient town of Cherasco is like the Burgundy equivalent of this great region. It is subtle and elegant and has a lovely soft warmth at its heart. Production is traditional all the way. Fragrant and firmly structured offering enticing scents of ripe berry, baking spice, tobacco, leather and a balsamic note. The solid palate doles out sour cherry, crushed raspberry, strawberry, cinnamon, clove and anise.
