($166) Full red. Crystal lized redcurrant and plum on the nose. Suave on entry, then rather closed in the middle palate, hinting only at licorice and menthol. But this powerfully structured Barolo builds impressively toward the back end. The tannins are substantial but not dry.

Medium ruby. Gaja's 1999 Conteisa, from the Cerequio cru in La Morra, is the most approachable of this set of wines. It offers a delicate, perfumed nose, along with notes of ripe red fruit, spices and sweet toasted oak with excellent length as well as balance and fine tannins. Here the softer La Morra fruit seems a bit dominated by the oak.

A cool and racy wine, with mineral, berry and red licorice character that turns to fresh flowers. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a ripe, rich finish. Slightly hot. Still needs a few years to come together. 1,000 cases made.
