The Society’s Exhibition Barolo 2016

RRP £27

Both spicy and floral with typical Nebbiolo perfume, the well-judged veneer of oak brings added seasoning to the spicy, full-bodied cranberry and sour cherry fruit in this Bussia vineyard Barolo from Silvano Bormida, ably supported by an appetisingly savoury dry finish that makes Barolo such a knockout red with food such as seared beef. Serious value here.
