Wine AdvocateThe 2008 Barolo Gramolere caresses the palate with gentle dark fruit, flowers, licorice, spices and sweet dried herbs. There is an inner perfume to the 2008 that is highly appealing. This soft, fragrant Barolo is delicious today, but should also age quite nicely. It is the most approachable of the estate's single-vineyard Baroli. Juicy dark berries and plums reappear on the vibrant finish, while the tannins are virtually unnoticeable within the realm of young Barolo. At the same time, the tannins do firm up a bit as the wine sits in the glass, so I would wait another year or two before opening the 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.
