6 Amazing 1980 Barolo

1. Prunotto Cannubi Riserva (1980)

Next » 1 of 5
This has a flat out fantastic nose. I just smelled this for minutes. Absolutely textbook barolo and with toe curling detail. Roses and raw beef at first, then turning so fresh and precise on the nose with scents of rosehips, a flash of Italian plum, raspberries in alcohol, and finally hints of gunpowder, brown mushroom and faint edge of Gummi bear sweetness. Simply fantastic. In the mouth this is bright and so fresh retaining a rich, powerful core of red berry lingonberry fruit. The balance is superb, pinpoint with a long elegant finish carrying the pomegranate and mineral accented flavors from the palate to the finale. This was my wine of the night and a wine that can hold its own in any company. 94pts
