Review:
The 2017 Barolo Vigneto Garretti is gracious and nicely lifted right out of the gate. Sweet floral notes and red berry fruit give the 2017 tons of immediacy. This mid-weight, perfumed Barolo from La Spinetta will drink well right out of the gate. I would prefer to drink it over the next decade or so.
