- 1982 Marchesi di Barolo Barolo Riserva della Castellana Gia Opera Pia - Italy, Piedmont, Langhe, Barolo (5/1/2020)
Fill and cork condition outstanding. Is this a late release. I suspect not from bottle and label.
Rich slightly cloudy mahogany color.
Lovely mature barolo nose. A little funk at first, but with air, roses, damp earth, a hint of tar (but not a lot), autumn leaves.
Very classy and old school palate of ripe cherries, fine dust, great acid and firm tannins. A lot of balance here. Definitely in a tertiary stage but holding on nicely and the acid really makes for a great food wine. (93 pts.)
