($170) Deeply pitched, superripe aromas of redcurrant, tar, marzipan, tobacco and underbrush. Sweet, lush and explosively perfumed in the mouth. Less dense and structured than the 2000 but more elegantly styled. A real essen ce of Barolo aromatics. Finishes very long, with broad, serious tannins that call for another four to six years of cellaring.

Reticent. Short. Perhaps too early and needs a long decant.
