1978 Barolo, 1978

Viarengo & Figli
Damaged labels vintage still legible
Special Offer | Was £119 | Now £50.00

This Barolo from the excellent 1978 wine vintage has some browning in the colour which would be expected for Barolo after 40 years. Clearly dominated by tertiary aromas but in an expected and pleasant way. More tar and iron than roses, rich powerful aromatics that develop in the glass and the open bottle. Tannin structure still firm; clear indication of stem presence. The wine has probably peaked a few years ago but is still drinking beautifully. much will depend on your expectations. Re-tasted the following day: tannins softening a little and wine still holding up...Truly built for long term cellaring (customer review)

Barolo is known as the 'king of wines' and is made from the Nebbiolo grape.

Price: £50.00 (3 in Stock)
