Written Notes

Andrea Oberto Barolo 2008 Oaky nose with chocolate, coconut, mint and sweet, dark cherry fruit. Fruity attack with noticeable oak flavors of coconut and chocolate surrounded by sweet, dark cherry fruit. A touch of violets and cassis freshens up the mid-palate but the tannins are dry and the oak kills the finish. Might keep but won’t develop. Disappointing! Now-2018 85p
