Deep ruby with orange rim. Beautiful depth and clarity on the nose with hints of graphite. Plush, multi-layered palate with fine, polished tannins, and loads of them. Gorgeous, tangy, deep-fruit finish. Closes up quickly, indicating that this needs time.
17.5 points, Walter Speller
Bright red. Aromas of bright floral red berries, minerals and fresh herbs. Youthfully chewy tannins provide backbone to the crisp red berry and botanical herb flavors. The long clean finish features a very strong savory quality.

Dried cherries, raspberries, tobacco and crushed flowers rise effortlessly from the glass. Delicate berry-infusions are contained within a tightly packed tannic structure. But the texture is beautifully silken. Freshness and verve are the hallmarks of this appealing vintage and this wonderful Barolo has it in spades.
