Deep ruby-red. Deep, pure aromas of red and black fruits, licorice and smoky oak. Supersweet and wonderfully deep, with extremely primary dark fruit and camphor flavors. Offers compelling breadth and palate coverage, not to mention impeccable balance. Seamless and complex. Perhaps best today on the slow-building, palate-staining finish, which features extremely fine tannins. One of my early favorites from this outstanding vintage. This has fruit of steel.

Strawberry, chewy overripe raspberry, and a bit of rhubarb and saddle leather. Supple with dusty tannins gripping the front of the tongue and striking acid holding a 1.5 second court on the back of the palate. Great bridge between old school and modern Barolo.
