Busted. Barolo without all the fussiness of "taste" or "charm."

Michele Chiarlo Barolo 2008 Tortoniano - mahogany in the glas, earthy aroma of leather and tar, soft red flowers mixed in. Palate is a bit more fresh than I expected. Bright fruit gives way quickly to earthy notes of leather, walnut. Well integrated and structured though the tannin is quite soft

This 2008 is tasting nicely. Strawberry, cranberry, tea leaf. Very well balanced. Very impressive.

Awfully soft and polished, but that just makes it more approachable and easy drinking. Crunchy cherries and lifted florals are lovely, but it just doesn't get all the way there for me. I wouldn't turn down a glass, though.
