Stefano Farina Barolo 2003

The recent lack of updates is due to some crazy hours at my firm of late. Hopefully things will calm down and the updates will again flow regularly! I had this a while ago, but didn't write about it until now largely because it was a pretty disappointing wine. Mostly blackberry and black current on the nose, the herbaciousness was a bit green and the acidity tangy and unbalanced. Barolo rarely provides such simple and unpleasant flavours. Enjoyable enough for a $20 bottle, this is something to pass by at $45.

$45 at BCLDB
