Eraldo Viberti Barolo 1998

100.00

Morello cherries mingle with cigar wrapper, tarry earth, mushrooms, prunes, truffles, slightly candied red flower petals and spice in this elegant, finessed, and traditional ’98 Barolo from Eraldo Viberti. Tertiary notes are peeping out at this mature stage but this wine has a beautiful core of vibrant minerality that propels it across the palate with considerable energy. Velvety and complex, this wine glides across the palate and scatters copious polished tannins as it builds to a persistent, nuanced finish.

Deriving from three La Morra vineyards that total six acres and sport tufaceous and clay marl, the organically tended grapes ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel for about thirty days, and the wine ages for two years in barrels.  Decanting highly recommended to bring this delicious Barolo to life. The tannins at this stage are still apparent but have lost the abrasiveness common to younger Nebbiolo and ensuring more cellar potential.
