The 2007 Barolo Ciabot Mentin is one of the greatest wines I have ever tasted at this address. Deep, sensual layers of fruit flow from the glass as this full-throttle, intense Barolo reveals its profound, breathtaking personality. The 2007 shows tons of Ginestra nuance, but with extra dimensions to the fruit that literally covers every nook and cranny of the palate. Tasting this next to the 2006 is quite a comparison, as both wines are fabulous. Readers who can should be sure to own bottles of both. A side-by-side comparison is sure to be fascinating as the wines develop over the coming years. Astute readers will note the slight name change here, which is the result of new regulations that require the use of the historic vineyard name, in this case Ginestra, or a proprietary name...

'07 vintage Serious, tight and on the austere side. Mouthfeel is striking. Tannins are MASSIVE, coating the entire mouth, letting a magnificent dark cherry emerging. I absolutely loved this wine. A keeper, give it ten years collaring as the tannins are quite present.

Still had tannins and a slightly bitter finale. But otherwise very nice.

17.5. 2007. Decant a couple of hours before next time. Still tannic after 10 years. But fruit fine. Graceful and long.

Dry medium tannins. Fragrant on the palate. Elegance of red fruit with floral, leather and earthy notes. Dark deep red Barolo nose, big bold & well balanced taste! It's a WOW wine
