($80) Deep red with ruby highlights. Black fruits, iron, violet, menthol and smoked meat on the nose. Juicy, spicy and ripe, with explosive inner-mouth perfume and superb intensity to the slightly medicinal black fruit flavors. Really classic Serralunga Barolo: not obviously sweet and not at all easy in the early going but with a powerful structure for a long and slow evolution in bottle. Extremely long on the aftertaste, with the firm tannins covered by the wine's sheer stuffing.
