Pretty dark garnet color. Very fresh and youthful aromas of blueberry and fresh flowers and hints of mineral. Full-bodied, with a dense and solid core of ripe fruit. Yet it's cool and racy. This still needs time.--1998 Piedmont blind retrospective (2008). Best after 2011. (JS, Web-2008)
Saturated dark red. Sappy, spicy aromas of currant, plum, tar and smoke. Lush, sweet, chewy and deep; superb framing acidity gives the wine great vinosity and yet the texture is utterly seamless. Finishes with superb persistence; ripe tannins are buried in fruit. A very young Barbaresco with great verve.
Made in a restrained, elegant style, the 1998 Barbaresco Vigneto Loreto exhibits a dark ruby color as well as an elegant, smoky, cherry, and oak-scented bouquet. This quintessentially elegant, medium-bodied, supple, delicious Barbaresco will drink well for 7-8 years. (RP)
