    Full, deep red. Nose like a berry cocktail, with a distinctly liqueur-like ripeness. Then hugely rich in the mouth; perhaps larger-scaled than the 2000 but without quite the same silkiness of texture. Finishes with substantial tannic spine and superb persistence. Not quite as lush or suave as the 2000 but built to age. This may well be the superior wine in the long run.

    The 2001 Barolo Arborina is still quite vibrant and primary. Sweet red berries, flowers, mint and licorice take shape in the glass as this gorgeous, polished Barolo opens up in the glass. There is plenty of Arborina tannic backbone and freshness to support the long, energetic finish. This is a dazzling wine from Elio Altare.

    Bright and superclean with mineral, berry and raspberry aromas. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a caressing finish. Very fine. Long and silky.
