Loads of spices, cinnamon and cloves on the nose follow through to a full-bodied palate, with silky tannins and a long, long finish. Beauty. Balanced. Manzone always makes harmonious wine. Best after 2009.

The 1998 Barolo Le Gramolere Bricat is a delicate Burgundian-styled wine with sweet cherry fruit intermixed with earth, wet stones, and flowers. The wine requires consumption over the next 7-8 years.

Vivid and ripe fruit, with berry, raspberry and spice. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a lightly spicy finish. Always an outstanding Barolo. Best after 2005.

Fresh and floral on the nose, with bright berry and strawberry undertones. Full-bodied, yet delicate and silky-textured. Builds on the palate. A classy wine. Very well done. Best after 2011.

Manzone's 2004 Barolo Le Gramolere reveals gorgeous notes of candied cherries, spices and menthol in an elegant, sweet expression of this vineyard. It offers greater freshness than the Castelletto, with notable vibrancy to its generous fruit. The finish is delicate and long, as ethereal aromas linger in the empty glass. The Gramolere was aged predominantly in 500 liter barrels with 15-20% of the juice seeing larger 20-hectoliter barrels. It is one of the finest wines I have tasted from this small, artisanal producer. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024.

Another sweet, seductive, round, evolved, and fragrant 1993 Barolo, Manzone's Le Gramolere offers dazzling ripeness, rich, sweet, spicy, cherry, smoky fruit, medium to full body, an appealing lushness and generosity to its personality, and a sweet, easy-going, elegant finish. This disarmingly tasty wine is typical of how seductive and forward so many 1993 Barolos have turned out.

Very floral, with berry, cherry character. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a medium finish. Hard now but will reward the patient. Best after 2004.
