1998: Youthful. Broad on the palette, with tannins not far behind. This is the Barolo for CA Cab lovers, with a chewy, dense mouthfeel, yet packed with fruit and tasting brand new, rather than 17 years old. Also poured at Quince for white truffle menu. While not showing the same level of complexity as the 1971 or 1985 at the same meal, it was roundly admired, and preferred by some.

Nice Cherries, strawberries, rhubarb, earthy, big structure and tannins. Hold another 3-5 years

Always good, never great (unless they are some of the older 40-50's non recorked wines). Solid Barolo just expect more from a Riserva.

All fruits and acids are there. Still a young wine. Smooth tanines. Great stuff. Hint of tabacco.

Starting to round out. Bright acidity, but balanced with a bit of leather and earth.

Red fruit on the nose. Structured. Power. Leather and tar. Lots of life left.
