Very disappointing. Thin, vinegary, lacking body,depth and flavour. For a wine of this price I expected far more.
We are experiencing the same as yourself with this particular concoction of dare I say wine, your review was perfect! £9.99
I am always enthusiastic about Barolo and it is one of those classics that you can almost guarantee will bring a subtle calm to the palate . So imagine my shock at what can only be described as a sherry smelling water was poured into my glass.
I was so disappointed I threw the bulk away so not to punish any one else with this imposter.
I am aware that there was a year that this grape suffered at the hands of the elements, but I thought that was 2010 ( please correct if I’m wrong)
My recommendation, go to M&S . Seriously poor research by your tasting team Lidl
I always look forward to opening a bottle of Barolo, but I must agree with the comments above, a very poor vintage.
