Paolo Manzone Barolo “Meriame” 2006

This wine makes clear why this corner of Serralunga produces some of the best Nebbiolo in the world. The color of a sunset with a potpourri nose of delicately drying spices, cherries, strawberries and flowers, this balanced, elegant beauty still has many more years of life in her, but is drinking pretty darn well now.
