THREE GREAT BAROLO PRODUCERS
ELIO GRASSO , CAVALLOTTO , and ANDREA OBERTO
I had another tasty Barolo last night. Just one of so many hundreds over the years. Yes another tasty Barolo, I just love it. The Barolo in question was a bottle of BAROLO ANDREA OBERTO 2012.. All I can say is that I just sat back and enjoyed this wine after work one night with my friend Peter Mosconi. It was Peter’s and he brought it to the table. I took a sip and wow, I was flabbergasted, this wine was absolutely awesome.
Drinking Barolo is always a special treat, and this time proved to be one of those extra specail ones, for sometimes the experience is good, at other time disappointing, and as with this night and this particular Barolo, the Andrea Oberto Vintage 2012, everything was just great, and just about as good as it gets, the Barolo was absolutely perfect and as I told Peter, you can buy a much more expensive Barolo, like one from Giaccomo Conterno or one of the Mascarello’s, or similar high-priced Barolo and now matter if you spent $300 or $500 or whatever price you paid, it wouldn’t matter, the Barolo could not be better than the one we were drinking tonight (Monday June 26, 2017) at Monte’s Trattoria, there could be no Barolo better than this, for this particular Barolo (Andrea Oberto Barolo 2012) was absolutely perfect. It was a Text Book Barolo and perfectly in balance which says it all. It was full of flavor, the classic Barolo flavors, like ; Cherry Fruit flavors with some nice full Dark Chocolate notes, a twinge of Tar, Truffles, and Violets. This Barolo had the right amount of weight to it, with correct acid, tannin, and everything you expect from a great Barolo, it was all there. Well I don’t want to go on and on on this that and everything, but quite simply the wine was I must say again, perfect and as good as it gets, and was purely a Joy to Drink. Basta!
