Good deep red-ruby. Very ripe, slightly rustic aromas of gun flint, leather and licorice. Fat, sweet and rich, with gun flint, leather and mineral flavors. Substantial chewy tannins show a hint of astringency.

The 1997 Barolo was performing well prior to bottling. Broad, sweet, fat flavors with considerable glycerin and alcohol are present in this full-bodied, structured, powerful, muscular Barolo.

Unbelievable quality. Made in serious quantity. Glorious aromas of crushed flowers, prunes, cedar and cigars. Full-bodied, thick and tannic, yet ripe and round, with a sleek, caressing finish. A classic Barolo that is well-priced. 6,200 cases made.

Big, dark red. In magnum. Still young and too early, especially in this size bottle. Currant, berries, oak. Creamy. Do not know if it is just a simple or very young wine!!

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
