  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    Good full red. Fresh, spicy aromas of cherry, camphor, licorice and dried flowers. Fat, sweet and pliant; a step up in complexity and concentration from the Arborina. Finishes very long, with lush, fine tannins. A very successful, thoroughly ripe '97 Barolo.

    The dark plum/garnet-colored 1997 Barolo Giachini offers a luxurious bouquet of black fruits, espresso, roasted herbs, and cherry liqueur. Full-bodied and lush, with layers of glycerin, multidimensional flavors, and great persistence on the palate, this is a fabulously concentrated, compelling offering to drink now and over the next 15 years.

    Very ripe and fragrant with cedar, incense and spices. Full-bodied, yet refined and silky, with lovely ripe tannins and a long spicy, berry and tobacco finish.

    This has it all right now...deep smoky fruit, lovely bouquet, good acidity, rich smooth tannins and a long finish.

    We drank this with grilled Ribeye on 1/17/09. It was very earthy with a bouquet of cherry, tobacco, leather and spice. It was dry and tannic, but the tannins were well integrated. The palate followed with flavors of leather, cherry and spice with a long, satisfying 45 second finish. This was my first ever Barolo...what a terrific introduction...very, very good!
