Ettore Germano 2006 Barolo, "Lazzarito," Piedmont, Italy
Wine Advocate rating: 93..."The 2006 Barolo Riserva Lazzarito is one of the most polished, elegant Baroli I have ever tasted from Sergio Germano. Freshly cut roses, red berries, licorice, mint and spices are all woven together in a rich fabric of notable class. The wine's expressive inner perfume and long, resonant finish both elevate it above previous vintages. This is very, very pretty. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026."
