This is a spectacular Barbaresco. It is awesomely thick rich and textured with unreal opulence as well as glycerin levels that define the finest offerings from the 1997 vintage.

It is awesomely thick rich and textured with unreal opulence as well as glycerin levels that define the finest offerings from the 1997 vintage. Albino Rocca hit the bull's eye in 1997. Awesome the 1997 Barbaresco Vigneto Brich Ronchi is a tour de force in winemaking. Its dark plum/ruby color is accompanied by explosive blackberry/cherry fruit aromas. In the mouth its viscous texture low acidity and overripe Nebbiolo characteristics provide remarkable intensity and extraordinary flavor richness with notes of blackberries cherries coffee smoke licorice and earth. The finish lasts for nearly 45 seconds. Drink this spectacular Barbaresco over the next 7-8 years.A Marc de Grazia Selection various American importers including Michael Skurnik Syosset NY; tel.

Good full deep red. Superripe aromas of roasted plum redcurrant marzipan grilled nuts and pungent oak spices. Dense fleshy and seamless with compelling depth of flavor.

Dense fleshy and seamless with compelling depth of flavor. This wine has the sheer buffering material to handle the high percentage of new oak in which it was aged.

Lovely aromas of chocolate plum and raspberry follow through to a full-bodied palate with big chewy tannins and a long finish. An ager. Best after 2004. 1580 cases made. –JS
