Stephen Tanzer's IWC - Stephen Tanzer's IWC, December 2000
Deep red. Brooding aroma dominated by blackberry. Huge volume and sweetness in the mouth with lovely harmonious acidity accentuating the thickness of the wine. Showed a note of crystallized fruit with aeration. Finishes... Deep red. Brooding aroma dominated by blackberry. Huge volume and sweetness in the mouth with lovely harmonious acidity accentuating the thickness of the wine. Showed a note of crystallized fruit with aeration. Finishes with very fine tongue-dusting tannins. Not quite as expressive or perfumed as the '98 though. The Conternos compare the '97 vintage to 1990 in style.

The 1997 is dense and lush on the palate showing very ripe dark cherry fruit with notable extract and glycerin. Another... 1997 Barolo Cascina Francia-Dark ruby. Incredibly beautiful nose of dried flowers and sweet fruit. The 1997 is dense and lush on the palate showing very ripe dark cherry fruit with notable extract and glycerin. Another wine that is just singing today the alluring and irresistible 1997 offers superb drinking now.

Smells like top-notch Burgundy with strawberry smoke flowers and light earth. Full-bodied with rich round tannins and lots of rich almost decadent fruit. Long and caressing. Ready.--1997 Italian blind retrospective. Drink... Smells like top-notch Burgundy with strawberry smoke flowers and light earth.
