Good full red. Explosive nose offers plum, cherry liqueur, licorice, roasted tobacco and black olive, along with a sexy gamey nuance. Boasts an uncanny combination of silky texture and sheer intensity, with the fully ripe red fruit flavors complicated by mint, truffle and dried flowers--in other words, classic Barolo. Features with a firm spine of acidity and big, ripe tannins that are totally buffered by the wine's mid-palate material. The incredible, slowly building finish leaves the mouth reverberating with perfume. Wonderfully harmonious from the start but constructed for a 30+-year life in bottle.
