2006 Barolo Parafada

The 2006 Barolo Parafada is another gorgeous wine from Massolino in this important vintage. Here, too, the fruit is incredibly primary but in the Parafada the French oak has added a dimension of explosiveness and volume that is captivating. Hints of spices and flowers hint at the inner sweetness that should develop in bottle. The percentage of French oak (35%) has come way down in this bottling, which gives the fruit a better chance to shine. I loved this powerful, dense Barolo. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026.
