Elio Grasso Rüncot Riserva Barolo Nebbiolo 2008

$135

The 2008 Barolo Riserva Runcot is an exceptional wine that is only made in the best years. It was produced in 2008, 2010 and 2013. The wine undergoes a 40-day maceration time with four years in oak and one more year of bottle aging. The results are sublime and generous. Riserva Runcot opens to a beautifully tempered and expressive bouquet that exhibits elements of wild berry, forest floor, candied fruit, licorice, cola and dried ginger. The balsamic signature is particularly beautiful and elegant. Smooth and silky tannins denote the mouthfeel and carry the wine forward over the palate. This is one of the top releases from Piedmont this year. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Imagine the morning after a wet woodsy day with a hint of fennel - this was a wonderful wine

Out of mag. After dinner. Big and powerful, but tannins started to mellow.

So... I am missing Italy. I'm going back to Piedmonte, and soon. So I popped this. I have it in the decanter but I can already tell this is at the top of my scale. I'll try my best to justify... But this wine is a 9.5 on my scale, it's tough to move beyond that as I am giving a nod to the greatest wines that I have yet to experience. It's a perfect round cherry in your mouth. I should have more but I'm tired.

From magnum. Lovely fragrant nose enhanced by some good French Oak. Dare I say sexy. A trifle oaky but excellent nevertheless. Full bodied. Very good.

Not sure what I was drinking as it reminded everyone of a Cali style wine with rich ripe fruits, sweet oak and some alcohol on the back . Ordered this because of the great tasting we just had at Elio Grasso. Very disappointing!
