" The Gianfranco Alessandria 2016 Barolo opens to tangy and spicy fruit aromas with accents of aniseed, dried licorice and cola. That part fruit intensity and part ethereal spice is the aromatic playlist of a classic Barolo such as this. The wine is fermented in stainless steel, with a short 10 days of skin contact. It later ages in 225-liter oak barrel, of which only 20% of the wood is new. The results are lightweight and buoyant, and the wine is strong on aromatic high tones with some mint and crushed stone. There is no residual heaviness on the nose or the palate, and that balanced acidity kicks in on the close."
