Elio Altare Barolo Vigneto Arborina 1998

Winemaker's Notes:

92-94 points Robert Parker: :The dark ruby/plum-colored 1998 Barolo Brunate exhibits a smoky, mineral, jammy strawberry and black cherry-scented nose with notions of leather, pain grille, and spice box. The wine has fabulously well-integrated wood, tannin, and acidity in addition to a complex, layered mid-palate and finish. The outstanding balance, purity, and seamlessness are immensely admirable. Enjoy this 1998 Barolo over the next 12-15 years.

The nose came off as restrained to me as if I was smelling Barolo through a veil with light notes of red fruit and roses. On the palate, I found cherry with old cedar, which lead to a soft tannic pull on the finish. This bottle did not receive the same decanting and the others in the flight and may have really come around with more time.
