Stroppiana Barolo Vigna San Giacomo 2002

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Barolo Vigna San Giacomo 2002 Subtle on the nose with a gentle layered quality to the slight prune notes that are complimented by nutty tones and an underlay of powdery dried clay. The tannins here are surprisingly ripe and this is elegant in the mouth with refreshing acidity but ultimately lacks a bit of volume and follow through on the backend though the very minerally, earthy core has an intriguing orange rind/citron peel tone to it. The finish is admirably fresh but lacks intensity and length though there are subtle tones of bitter cherry that make this perfectly drinkable though uninspiring. 85pts
