    A muscular, compact Barolo, offering meaty aromas of tar, with hints of licorice in the background. A cherry note comes forward with air. Rich on the palate and dense with tannins, this remains monolithic and somewhat closed.

    Borgogno's 2004 Barolo Riserva emerges from the glass with a host of tobacco, smoke, game, licorice and incense. The firm tannins are very much old school, but at the same time, the wine's mid-weight structure is a bit of a departure from the bombastic wines of the past. With air, the 2004 can be enjoyed today, but readers should expect a fairly burly style of Barolo with slightly oxidative notes that have begun to creep in.

    From three different vineyards: Cannubi, Fossati, Liste. Deep-centred ruby with orange tinges. Old school, sweet-sour Nebbiolo nose with hints of mulch and sweet red fruit. Succulent palate with intense acidity and gorgeous, grainy tannins. Stylish and long and animating. (WS)

    Lovely balance to this 2004, with firm, racy tannins, but the fruit is harmonious and beautiful. Full body, integrated tannins and a chewy, fruity finish. Drink or hold.

    The 2004 Barolo Riserva emerges from the glass with layers of fragrant red berries, flowers and spices. It, too, is representative of the year. Silky tannins frame the perfumed, expressive fruit through to the finish. This is an especially refined style for Borgogno. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2023.

Piedmont, which literally means “foot of the mountain,” produces some of Italy's finest red wines. Its clay, limestone, and sand soils are home to the legendary Barolo and Barbaresco wines, made from the extremely age-worthy Nebbiolo variety. Dolcetto and Barbera are considered to be more “workhorse” varieties, and produce the largest quantity of wine. The region is tucked in the cool northwest corner of the country, surrounded on three sides by the Alps. Fog often blankets the region, ensuring long, cool growing seasons.
