Barollo wines in the Gambero Rosso 2023 Italian Wine Guide
Less than 50 hectares of vineyards located on the plain between Treviso and Venice constitute the most precious asset of Marco and Nicola Barollo, owners of a company located in an agricultural context which since its debut, which took place about twenty years ago, has placed the valorization of this portion of Veneto at the center of his project. Great attention is given to the Bordeaux varieties, expressed with a vital and juicy style, but there is no shortage of chardonnay and, of course, glera.
The Frank! '19 offers the nose intense notes of wild fruit and pepper, which find an exquisite burst of freshness in the officinal and spicy push. In the mouth the wine does not express great concentration but rather finesse and progression, which accompany it to a long and lively finish. The Chardonnay of the same vintage, on the other hand, plays with more mature and sunny notes, highlighted by notes of golden apple, toasted hazelnuts and a curious sulphurous note. The sip is solid, dry and with good tension.
