Giulia Negri Barolo La Tartufaia 2017
La Tartufaia is a divinely atmospheric truffle forest in the heart of La Morra where Giulia’s vineyards run parallel. The wines produced here, from clay-rich soil, are textbook examples of classically structured Barolo typical of the area. Rounded tannins, salty minerality, and pure Nebbiolo fruit make this wine an essential selection for any cellar, especially in such a stellar vintage.
Aromas of ripe berries, cedar, truffle and eucalyptus form the nose. Linear and rather austere, the palate offers sour cherry, ground clove and a hint of black tea alongside tense tannins. Drink after 2027.
