The 2007 Barolo Le Vigne presents a beguiling combination of explosive ripe fruit and finessed silky tannins that make it a thrilling wine to taste even at this stage in its development. Small red berries minerals crushed flowers vanillin and sweet spices are woven together in a fabric of undescribable elegance. The French oak has never been better balanced while the vibrant crystalline finish leaves a lasting impression. The 2007 Le Vigne has all the potential to develop into a spectacular wine?actually it already is. This is a totally stunning bottle of Barolo. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027. -AG

Blueberries flowers and raspberries on the nose. Full bodied with velvety tannins and a long caressing finish. Lots of toasted oak. Impressive intensity and richness to this. Best after 2015. But so wonderful now.

A lush texture frames blackberry plum and spice flavors upheld by the dense steely structure. Well-proportioned this needs time for the sweet fruit and structure to harmonize. Very long with a core of cherry lingering... A lush texture frames blackberry plum and spice flavors upheld by the dense steely structure.

Bright dark red. Dark raspberry chocolate and coffee on the nose; smells clearly riper than the 2008. Fat sweet and plump with a texture of liquid velvet. Surprising acidity and substantial but smooth tannins give this... Bright dark red. Dark raspberry chocolate and coffee on the nose; smells clearly riper than the 2008. Fat sweet and plump with a texture of liquid velvet. Surprising acidity and substantial but smooth tannins give this very ripe Barolo excellent spine. Finishes with a note of menthol. The 2008 may be a bit longer but it's much tighter today.
