Vintage wine : Barolo Docg Parafada 2014
Ratings/Awards : 93

“Playing true to type, the 2014 BaroloParafada is a bit more powerful and dense through the middle than the otherSerralunga Barolos in the range. Deep and concentrated – especially in the context of the year – theParafada presents an intriguing mélange of sweet tobacco, mint, dried cherry and underbrush nuances before the firm, sinewySerralunga tannins make their presence known. The Parafada is not as refined as the other wines in the lineup, but it has a certain immediacy that is undeniably appealing. I would give it a few years to unwind.” – A. Galloni
