The 2014 Barolo Gramolere is another big, powerful wine from Alessandria. Huge and hulking on the palate, with striking depth, the 2014 is going to need quite a bit of time to come into its own. A host of dark spice, mineral and balsamic notes infuse this strapping, inward Barolo. Readers will have to be patient, but there is much to look forward to. Drink: 2022-2044. (Feb18)
