Araldica Flori Barolo 2005

I almost fell over when I saw the price of this Barolo: nearing $23.  Was it missing a zero?  I brazenly hoped that this was an example of catastrophic mis-pricing.  The retailer didn't seem to mind selling it to me ...  What then of the wine?  It's not bad: an aroma of earth, initial varnishy notes, dried herbs - quite aromatic really.  The palate though was a bit plain with acidity quite evident.  It did drink quite pleasantly on day 2 though.  Acceptable
