International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 117

Good medium red. Exotic, exhilarating aromas of sappy red berry liqueur and woodsmoke. Wonderfully sweet on entry, then superripe and liqueur-like in the middle palate, with an utterly suave texture over firm supporting spine. Finishes impressively long and sweet, with serious but noble tannins. There's nothing especially austere or forbidding about this extremely rich Barolo.

Delish red fruit and spice on the nose and more purple than I'd expect in the glass. Not the classic rusty red. This is big and rich and stood up well to a hearty lentil and lamb stew tonight. Fruit blooms in the mouth followed by some good acidity / tang then drying and lasting tannins. Tasty but not spectacular.

I don't know what to think about this wine. The tannins were so astringent and overbearing that it was tough to discern what might be underneath. For an 11 year old wine I am a little concerned that this will ever balance out; not because it's tannic but because the tannins are so dry. My score right now is optimistic based on the assumption that this will be long lived and balance out one day. We'll see...92?
