Luigi Pira Barolo Vigna Rionda 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

"The excessive heat is most evident in this wine’s over-ripe dark fruit, licorice, toasted oak, and vanilla flavors, and hard, aggressive tannins. It will be interesting to see how this wine develops, but for now some caution is warranted. “These are my youngest vines, and as the roots are not yet very deep the plants undoubtedly struggled for water here,” adds Gianpaolo Pira.... 91" WA 11/05.
