Deep, bright red. Sappy aromas of kirsch, mocha, tobacco, licorice and spicy, roasted oak. Sweet and thick but with lovely vibrancy and delineation. This has remarkably penetrating fruit and terrific grip. Finishes strong and long; the wine's firm tannins will require a good six or seven years of additional bottle aging. But promises to be one of the stars of the vintage. (Marc de Grazia; numerous importers)

Dark ruby. The 1999 Percristina caps off this dazzling series of 1999 Barolos. It offers an expressive nose of licorice and tar, along with layers of sweet dark fruit in a big, muscular style. While it does not possess the complexity of Clerico's Barolos from Ginestra, the more full-throttle Percristina provides immense drinking pleasure even at this early stage of its life, although it will be even better in a few years.
