Ferdinando Principiano Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d’Alba 2014
Feiring Line Wine Society: May 2018 Selection
From Alice: Ferdinando is a beautiful winemaker. Can I think of one wine of his that I don’t love? No. At this point, Ferdinando makes three different Barolos. This is his most early drinking. From 3.5 acres of younger vines in the Serralunga Boscaretto vineyard ( twenty-year-old). Aging for 24 months in different sized botti. The wine is a class act. It’s got everything, the acid spine, the silt, the sandalwood, the fennel, the tannin and the smoldering dark fruit beneath the mist. But this one is a complete beauty and try to stash it away, or at least double decant before you open it straight away. (Which you might want to do in order to decide if you want to stock your stash).
