Germano 2007 Barolo Vigna Rue
Rating: James Suckling: 92 Points
The Barolo made with these grapes has well structured and intense tannins, which give it vigour in the first years. This peculiarity makes it suitable for long aging (up to 20 years). Tannins are substances present in grapes which, in the course of the years, turn into complex flavours and aromas such as spice scent or, as in this case, chocolate flavour. This Barolo, bought when young, is a great investment wine. But it is also an excellent and forceful wine to be drunk young. We merchandize it after twelve months in bottle in addition to the compulsory three years of aging, and recommend to taste it after at least another 6 months in bottle. It pairs well with elaborate second courses such as braised meat with Barolo, roast beef Barolo sauce, rice with Barolo wine and aged cheese.
