($90) Deep red-ruby. Complex but youthfully reticent aromas of raspberry, loam, rose petal, graphite, mint and tobacco. Rich, fat, chewy and quite dry, with compelling density and breadth and terrific juicy lift to the red fruit and spice flavors.

This classically dry Barolo needs a good seven or eight years of cellaring. From vines ranging from 20 to 35 years of age, planted on compact clay-and-limestone soil.
