(two of the four barriques were new, the other two once-used): Good full, deep red. Complex nose melds cherry, licorice, minerals and dried herbs; I barely detect the new oak. Offers insidious red fruit intensity and compelling silky sweetness without weight, with the calcaire-based soil energizing the wine. Wonderfully classy Barolo with a very long, juicy finish and outstanding finesse of tannins. This has to be one of the finest wines this estate has produced to date. Carlo Revello describes this "continuation" of Giachini as "Giachini-plus."
