Bouquet: The Barolo Terlo 2011 is presented with the wide range of fruit sensations, in part those of fruit jam that is well merged with a delicate note that arrives from the wood. The cru of Terlo is never rich of shades and complexity and its wines are characterized for an almost mineral and earthy impact. Thanks to the vintage we find a sweet and intense bouquet that gives an important olfactory impact.
Taste: It’s a wine with the tannins and a delicate acid note at the base that promises a great evolution. The first sensation is a certain might, a good structure and the enjoyable tannins, well defined but not rough. It has a substance typical for that cru, pleasant mineral notes and a slight angularity (sin of youth) but when it is mature it would definitely be a wine of charm.
