Sobrero Barolo Riserva Pernanno Mathusalem 2009
“Leather, tar and licorice hold court in this dense and structured red, with macerated cherry and plum flavors and sweet, ripe fruit.
This elegantly soft Barolo shows a dark ruby appearance in the glass.
Make no mistake; this is a big wine. It lands firmly on the palate with big fruit, a dense velvety mouth feel, and a long finish. The tannins are beginning to come into line on the finish. Best from 2014 through 2027. WS 92 Points.
The Pernanno vineyards produce some of the finest Nebbiolo in the commune. These vines were planted in 1946 facing south-southwest.
Pair with red meats, pot roast, and game.
