Ellena Giuseppe Barolo di La Morra 2017 1500ml

WS92, WA88

Sun-kissed hay, macerated cherry and a hint of wild herbs mark this fresh, streamlined Barolo. It's firm and dense, ending with a fine sense of equilibrium and long finish. Best from 2023 through 2042. - WS92

An ample release of about 15,000 bottles, the 2017 Barolo del Comune di La Morra is another one of these hot-vintage expressions that does not fulfill the lofty promise of this noble northern Italian appellation. The fruit is simple and stripped down. The wine shows sweet primary fruit but lacks the definition and clarity of the variety. I taste sweet cinnamon and toasted oak on this near-term wine. Drink:2023~2033 - WA88
