A rich and decadent wine with plum, berry and grilled meat on the nose. Full-bodied, with big chewy tannins and a velvety texture. Long and rich. A beauty. Best after 2008.
The 2003 Barolo Campé has developed beautifully and gained notable focus since I first tasted it from barrel a few years ago. It opens with a huge, overripe nose that leads to a powerful expression of earthiness, spices and sweet fruit, with mentholated, balsamic overtones. Made in a dense, powerful style, it offers outstanding length and a long, building finish. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2018.
The 2000 Barolo Campe, the first which Rivetti has made, is very fresh and vigorous for a wine from this hot vintage, spicy and balsamic in aroma with much tar and chocolate as well, dense flavors, much length and intensity, and a sizeable but supple close. Already quite approachable, it will last another decade and a half. Drink 2005-2020.
Shows aromas of flowers and berries, with hints of vanilla and a touch of rosebud. Full-bodied and very concentrated, with big, chewy tannins and a long, powerful finish. Loaded with fruit and layered, with impressive concentration. A blockbuster. Best after 2011.
Saturated ruby. Huge nose of toasted oak and super-ripe sweet fruit that defines this producer's wines. The 2001 Campe is massive on the palate, revealing layers of sweet dark fruit, licorice, tar, menthol, and spice flavors, with excellent sustain, finishing with broad and long tannins. A beautiful wine made in a very modern, extracted and super-ripe style. 2001 is the first vintage in which Giorgio Rivetti had complete control of his Barolo vineyard at Grinzane Cavour, and it shows in the much improved quality of this wine over last year's version.
Good deep medium red. Roasted, smoky nose hints at menthol. Fat, large-scaled and powerful; comes across as sweeter than the 2001 but less refined, despite possessing solid underlying minerality. Showing more shoulders today than the 2001. Finishes with lovely ripe tannins and excellent breadth.
Impressive red-ruby color. Aromas of black raspberry, menthol, mint and caramel, with a whiff of roasted fruits in the deep background. Lush, sweet, broad and a bit closed, with less cut and life than the '04. Finishes with some alcoholic warmth and huge tannins that coat the incisors.
Three Glasses, Gambero Rosso: The 2001 Barolo Campè is a stunner. The extremely elegant nose is followed by a muscular, even aggressive, palate of depth, richness and territorial character. Three Glasses were awarded without argument. (2006)
