98(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2009

($450) Full, deep red. Incredible nose combines red fruits, blood orange, minerals, spices and smoked meat. Sappy, silky and extremely intense yet somehow weightless, with a pristine quality to its fruit and mineral flavors. This saturates every millimeter of the palate with flavor, with the extraordinary rising finish going on for two minutes or more. Again, when I free-associated, the first word that came to my mind was Musigny. There's so much going on in this extremely primary and mineral-driven wine that one is hardly aware of the tannins. I think this will make a compelling drink in just two or three years but will evolve positively for a couple of decades. Giacosa considers this to be his best Barolo of the last ten years.
