Bolgetti Brunate Barolo 2004

External Review by We Speak Wine:

2004 Barolo Case Nere is a dark, brooding wine endowed with notes of smoke, earthiness and tobacco that emerge from its intense frame. This contemplative wine opens nicely in the glass, showing notable delineation in its aromas and flavors, with plenty of stuffing to support the tannins. It remains a very finessed yet backward Case Nere in need of a few years of bottle age. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2022. Bright, dark red. More violety lift to the nose than the Arione is currently showing, with notes of black cherry, leather, game and nutty oak. Densely packed but juicy and nicely delineated, with good verve and grip to the black and red fruit, loamy earth and menthol flavors. A rather elegant style, finishing with suave tannins and some recurring oak tones. But this also possesses the spine for a positive evolution in bottle. ** Only 3 in Stock **

The 2004 Barolo Arione stands apart from Boglietti's wines from La Morra. A powerful, sinewy wine, it captures the essence of this Serralunga vineyard in its autumn leaves, iron, licorice, tar and dark fruit. There is plenty of richness and depth as well, but the wine possesses an additional level of brute force and thrust. This, too, is a beautifully expressive wine loaded with personality. As is the case with Boglietti's other Barolos in this vintage, the Arione develops nicely in the glass. Ideally a few years of cellaring are warranted, but my impression is that some of the wine's tannins may never melt away completely. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024.Good dark red. Exotic red berries, truffle and nutty, chocolatey oak on the nose. Fat, silky and sweet if a bit youthfully undifferentiated. Theres a liqueur-like aspect to the sweet, rich black raspberry flavor, as well as a hint of floral lift. Finishes with big but ripe tannins and very good length. ** Only 10 in Stock **
