Luigi Pira Barolo Vigna Rionda 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

94 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): Dark ruby. One of the standouts in my tastings of the vintage, the Vigna Rionda is another awesome effort from this young producer. It displays an exquisitely beautiful nose of sweet toasted oak and white truffles which melds seamlessly onto a palate packed with layers of dark fruit that unfold with much persistence on the palate, marrying the structured nature of the vintage with the sublime elegance that defines the Vigna Rionda vineyard. Still vibrant and full of fruit, it will benefit from at least another few years in the cellar, after which it will provide great drinking for at least another decade. Drink after 2007, 03/06.
