Wine Expert Note:

This is a classic Barolo from the Cavallotto estate, aged in large Slavonian oak barrels. On the nose, it offers aromas of dried roses, sweet tobacco, and truffles. On the palate, it is full-bodied and structured, with a firm tannic backbone and flavors of dark cherries, licorice, and leather. The finish is dry, with a lingering minerality. Overall, this is a complex and elegant Barolo with a long and pleasing finish. Read more
Taste Flavor

Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.
