Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L

Score: N/A AG.
"The 2012 Barolo Barolo Rupestris is super-refined and nuanced. Expressive floral notes and bright, red-toned fruit lift from the glass in this very pretty, elegant Rupestris. Silky tannins add to the wine's considerable appeal. In most vintages, Rupestris is a bigger wine, but the 2012 is especially elegant. The 2012 captures the essence of what makes Barolo such a compelling wine - above all else, power without excess weight. Stated simply, the 2012 is a total knockout." Vinous, Feb 2018
Provenance: The Friendship Cellar
Notes: Base neck, nicked, very lightly scuffed label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $250
