Borgogno – Fossati 2012 – Barolo DOCG

The nose is fine and offers a slight intensity as well as a slight concentration. It reveals notes of crushed wild red berries and crushed raspberry associated with slight hints of blackberry as well as a very discreet hint of flowers and an imperceptible hint of Sichuan pepper. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, aerial and offers freshness, fat as well as suavity. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fresh red berries and slight notes of cherry, wild strawberry associated with a hint of crunchy cassis, an imperceptible hint of flowers, a very discreet hint of Sichuan pepper as well as discreet hints of licorice, toasted oak/chocolate and an imperceptible hint of graphite. Tannins are fine and firm. Good length and beautiful persistence with a slight note of cacao.
