    The 1998 Barolo Vigna del Gris offers a deep ruby/garnet color, medium to full body, and a sweet nose of lead pencil, new oak, black cherries, and rose petals. Elegant, powerful, beautifully harmonious, and well-delineated, with a moderately tannic finish

    Deep red. Spicy aromas of red cherry and marzipan; slight suggestion of cough syrup. More reticent in the middle palate than the Parussi, but this is deeper and more intensely flavored, hinting at red fruits, flowers, smoke and game. Juicy acidity keeps the flavors wound tight. Finishes firmly tannic and long. Not quite as perfumed as it seemed to be from barrel two years ago, but this extremely young wine holds out substantial promise.

    Plums and vanilla on the nose. Medium-bodied, with firm tannins. Not giving much now, but a solid Barolo. Best after 2005. 800 cases made. — JS
