Burlotto Neirane Barolo Re 1996
The bright aromatic of this wine are full of heather, licorice, smoke, olive brine and menthol notes but the fruit is still a bit reticent. In the mouth one finds superbly fine-grained tannins that are powerful but balanced by notes of white clay, leather and incipient dark raspberry fruits. This offers beautiful precision but remains a bit tight and coy on the palate. I like where this is going though and the aromatics hint that we are almost there.. 92ptsAdd winemaker's notes
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

This opens like a remarkable example of Cote Rotie with notes of olives, flowers, red raspberry fruit and an undertone of dried strawberry. With air notes of tar and tobacco emerge and add complexity. In the mouth this is somewhat small scaled but with great focus in a smooth, medium full bodies style with supple wild cherry fruit and light spice tones on the mid-palate that yield to notes of citron and strawberry on the finish. A wonderful bottle at maturity with a wonderful, fleshy feel 91pts
Straight out of the bottle this is aromatic and inviting with perfumes of black olive tapanade, herb stems, a hint of cinnamon and stewing wild cherries and black raspberries over a chalky base note. Round and mouth filling, there remain some wiry little tannins here supporting the core of truffly, gamy bright and edgy candied wild cherry fruit that turns plush on the backend. The wine shows a bit of a lighter bodied finish where the acidity and modest tannins take control over a rather long finish. This is as the Italians would say, vellutato on the palate with those rustic tannins emerging on the finish along with hints of cinnamon and dried herbs. Lacks the balance of the best vintages but is drinking awfully well today and with really compelling complexity. 90pts
Explosive nose of spanish olives and tea leaves with potpuri and french onion soup (seriously). The palate was smooth and full showing sour cherry, tobacco leaf and potato skin. Beautiful long finish that lingers for over a minute. You don't even need to drink this wine to enjoy it, the aromatics are that outstanding.
Prominent berry, cherry nose. Medium bodies with dried plum taste. Subtle and balanced taninics. Acidity comes out gradually in middle of palate. Long after taste with fruity finish.
