Guasti Clementte Barolo Riserva 1989
One of our favourite estates.If you like truly traditional, non mucked about with wines at really really good prices, this is the place to look. Recently we managed to persuade him to part with some of their old cellar stock, and it is just fantastic. 1989 was an incredible vintage in Piemonte, and those who've kept their bottles until now will be rewarded - the wines were tough when young but now they are just an absolute pleasure to drink. Dried rose petals, truffle, bonfire and smokey, leathery aromas with gorgeous fresh acidity and noticeable but ripe tannins - delightfully old fashioned and textbook old Barolo.
