Gemma Barolo Giblin 2005

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

AWE blind tasting -dirty, some eggs, yellow berry fruits, sour meats, pork, dried meats, rainier cherry, nice ripeness, a sweet caressing character, a bit weird but with a friendly feel, different, easy, burnished, bacon fat, butchers wax, barbershop, fresh. Clean, a bit lean but not taut, perhaps a bit simple and maybe not super varietal but as wine very likable 90-91

AWE blind tasting - salame, earthy and gamy, dried cherry, roast meat, greengage plum, nice sweet fruit, with that dank cellar note adding a hint of complexity, soft, quite evolved, fairly complex flavors that lack some freshness but have a nice complex, rather evolved character to the earthy, dried bitter root, very slight chinato feel to them, there’s a nice core of rather classically presented medicinal cherry fruit, finishes with menthol, and dried fruits but freshness, and a touch of dried meats, seems a bit too evolved but very enjoyable, 90-91



Tasting Notes:

Medium bodied with sour cherry and dried tobacco. Wide bouquet with hints of balsamic vinegar.

<p>Silvano Piacentini established Gemma in 1978, in the Serralunga d&rsquo;Albla commune. Today, Gemma operates roughly 16 hectares of vineyards, split between Serralunga and Monforte d&rsquo;Alba. Nebbiolo grapes for Barolo make up 65% of their harvest.</p>
