Cordero di Montezemolo Barolo Enrico VI 2012


SKU 32963


A Barolo of high standing, both austere and complex. Deep red garnet in color. Delicately spiced bouquet (notes of eucalyptus, licorice and menthol), mature fruit (liqueur soaked cherries, blackberries and prunes) and hints of violets and medicinal herbs. Powerful on the palate, lightly acidic and fresh. Lasting finish.

Wine EnthusiastAromas of underbrush, ripe dark-skinned berry, violet, leather and aromatic herb lead the nose. The ripe, full-bodied palate doles out black cherry, cranberry, licorice, espresso and a sprinkling of mocha alongside fine-grained tannins. Drink 2017-2022.

Wine AdvocateSlightly more low-key compared to the exuberant 2011 vintage, the 2012 Barolo Enrico VI adopts a bold, immediate and vertical approach. The bouquet hides little and delivers distinct tones of dark fruit, plum, tilled earth, licorice and spice. In the mouth, it offers a solid sense of structure with soft fruit flavors that wrap over the palate. Drink Date: 2017-2027.

Wine SpectatorA tightly wound style, this red offers cherry, spice, tobacco and menthol flavors, with tannins that are present and dense yet ripe and supportive. Fine length. Best from 2019 through 2032. 600 cases made.
