Very ripe fruit aromas, with sultana, prune and dried flowers. Full-bodied, with seamless yet chewy tannins and a long finish. Lasts a long time. Best after 2012. (JS)
Gripping depth of fruit in this wine. Layers of juicy fruit and silky tannins are just the beginning of the complexity in this wine. This could use a little rest before you open it. Should be ready by 2015.
The 2005 Barolo is a bit slender, but also nicely balanced. Dark red cherry, plum and smoke overtones give the 2005 much of its considerable appeal. The French oak is evident, but also nicely integrated, especially next to the 2004. (AG)
The estate’s 2005 Barolo is pretty and sensual in its dark fruit, menthol, spices and licorice. This mid-weight Barolo reveals gorgeous balance and a long finish and a relatively accessible personality for this bottling. That said, the wine needs a few years in bottle for the tannins to soften. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020. (AG)
Firm but sophisticated, with earthy aromas of saddle leather, spice cabinet and violets upfront, followed by flavors of crushed roses in the mouth. Long, dry finish. A bold wine to pair with bold food. Give the gripping tannins least three to four years to mellow out before opening.
Good medium red with amber highlights. Sexy perfume of redcurrant, tobacco, marzipan, chestnut, minerals and loam. Fresh and tight in the mouth; considerably less sweet and accessible than the 2005 Barbaresco. Finishes vibrant, firmly tannic and a bit youthfully tough. (ST)
