Tasting Notes

Vinous 93

Good medium color. Aromatic nose of smoky red fruits and game. Sweet and velvety in the mouth, though a bit reduced; perfumed notes of violet and strawberry. A velvety, very concentrated, impeccably extracted wine with perfectly integrated acids. Finishes very long and subtle, with building but fine tannins that are in harmony with the wine’s material. [Stephen Tanzer, 11/01/2002]

Robert Parker 95

The multidimensional 1998 Barolo Le Vigne possesses huge layers of black cherry fruit infused with rose petals, tar, balsam wood, mineral, and subtle new oak notes. Full-bodied, awesomely concentrated, and extraordinarily pure, this exquisite, youthful Barolo will be at its prime between 2004-2020.
