Slight musk note to the very perfumed nose with a strong floral top note, a touch spicy and minerally with a note of old wood/salame 3+ Big but suave in the mouth with tons of ripe tannins and juicy acidity 3 Dark and chewy fruit leaning towards black raspberry/dark cherry with a slightly bittersweet cocoa edge 2+ Fresh cherry fruit on the finish which is a touch short with more of that cocoa edge 2

Sweet spices introduce this concentrated red, whose deep, sappy flavors of cherry and plum mesh effortlessly with the supple texture. Licorice and mineral notes play around the edges, while the tannins are well-integrated. Stays bright and long on the finish. Best from 2013 through 2035. 125 cases made. -BS The estate's 2004 Barolo Runcot presents lovely harmony and balance. It is a full-bodied, concentrated wine with plenty of ripe dark fruit intermingled with sweet toasted oak nuances. Grasso says he may give this as much as 40 months in oak. Runcot is aged in 100% new French oak, although toast levels have come down, in 2004 50% is light toast and 50% is medium toast. It remains a very promising wine made in a distinctly more modern style than the house's other Barolos. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2022. Good full red. Musky red fruits, licorice and mocha on the nose, complicated by violet and tobacco nuances. Quite sweet but firm on entry, with a spine of ripe acidity giving energy and shape to the powerful red fruit flavors. Finishes long and fine, with noteworthy energy and a lot of positive development ahead of it. A classic Barolo that Grasso says is higher in acidity than the 2006 version. Quite likely to merit an even higher score with several more years of bottle aging.
