Terrific aromas of cinnamon, cloves and crushed berries follow through to a full-bodied palate, with supersilky tannins and a tight finish. This is holding everything back in reserve, but it's fantastic. A wine built for aging. Alessandria matches the quality of his terrific 1997 here.
The 2000 Barolo San Giovanni shows the style that was prevalent in Piedmont a decade ago. Mocha, roasted espresso beans and ripe, dark fruit are some of the notes that flow from this powerful, tannic Barolo. The San Giovanni has held up nicely, and it should continue to drink well for another decade or so... Anticipated maturity: 2011-2020.
