Subtle and perfumed, with rose, raspberry and strawberry. Full-bodied, with very silky tannins and a long finish. Seamless and textured. Pretty now, but give it a few more years.--1998 Piedmont blind retrospective (2008)... Subtle and perfumed, with rose, raspberry and strawberry.

The 1998 Barbaresco is a beautiful effort displaying fleshy oaky deep black cherry raspberry tar and truffle scents with subtle new oak in the background. Dense voluptuously-textured and full-bodied with gorgeous overall symmetry and beautifully integrated tannin acidity alcohol and wood it will drink well for 15 or more years.Importer: Paterno Imports Lake Bluff IL; tel.

Good deep medium red. Deeply pitched aromas of plum, mocha, licorice and dried flowers. Dense and chewy with extract; compelling, sweet flavors of currant and licorice. Tannins are sweeter than those of the '99... Good deep medium red. Deeply pitched aromas of plum, mocha, licorice and dried flowers. Dense and chewy with extract; compelling, sweet flavors of currant and licorice. Tannins are sweeter than those of the '99 Barbaresco. Finishes with a suggestion of nutty oak.

Fully evolved and tarry. Really confident. Dry end, tangy, a very pure expression of Nebbiolo. Some luscious fruit. Transparent. 17.5/20
