2018 Paolo Manzone Barolo 'Meriame'

Sorry - this product is no longer available

Meriame lies over a calcareous clay soil at 350 metres above sea level. The vines here are 70 years old and the wine is traditionally aged in large Slavonian oak for at least 24 months. Leather and macerated flower scents appear first, then liquorice and balsamic tones in depth. It has great concentration on the full bodied palate, which is unexpected for a 2018 tasted blind yet makes sense given the age of the vines. The tannins are ripe and of great quality, supporting a vibrant and savoury palate. It's a bit rustic on the finish but is authentic, with dried cherry and liquorice notes. One to follow. 95 points. Decanter.
