2007 Burlotto Barolo Monvigliero (revisited)

For me, this is what wine is all about. Buying several bootles of a wine and following over time. I posted a note on this wine about 4 years ago here, and thought it would be fund to compare my notes from then and now. Not only does wine develope over time, så does palates. That said, I do find much consistecy between the notes.

Tasting note on the 2007 Burlotto Barolo Movigliero
The palate has good complexity with underlying sweet strawberries, licquorice, dirt and rose pedals. I love the balance and contrast between the sweet fruit and florality and the more masculine dirty and darker elements. On the finnish sour cherries appears and provides the acidity and balance, but the finnish is dominated by an almost over the top perfumed florality. The finnish is long. This wine is drinking very well right now. There is fruit, acidity and tannins to last longer. Not sure it will improve, but it has some development left. 93

From memory I do believe that there was more secondary flavours and more complexity to this wine now than 4 years ago. I think this is drinking terrific at this stage, but could see some further positive development in the next 5 years. I do not think this wine is a wine that will develop positively for 30-40 years and that matches what is the common perception of the 2007 vintage.
