With fruit from higher-elevation vineyards in the village of Barolo, the 2017 Barolo Coste di Rose is quite elegantly downplayed and fragile. The wine reveals wild berry, cassis and lots of blue flower or lilac. A pretty mineral note recalls crushed limestone and is present through the long and polished mouthfeel. This wine overperforms, considering the challenges of this vintage that saw extreme weather, from spring frost to scorching summer temperatures. These vineyard sites performed better than most. Some 4,800 bottles were released
Aromatic, this evokes hay, cherry, currant and loam aromas and flavors. Wild herbs and tobacco accents seep in on the finish. On the dry side, but nothing food won't mitigate. Best from 2024 through 2037. 430 cases made. — BS.
