This is the last bottle that iI really sat with before dinner. Obviously youthful red color. Smoky pork fat nose is spicy and peppery with cool, crisp stone fruits. Very fresh but very reserved. After 3 hours this had opened nicely with seared plum fruit on the nose joined by nettles, cardamom, faint curry spice, a touch of wood, butchers wax and prosciutto notes. The entry is cool and restrained with very feminine power, fine balance of ripe tannin and acidity. This is sexy and surprisingly gentle with a solid core of fruit offering classic licorice and tar tones but not really ready. the nose is offering more than the palate at this point but this looks to be very good. 2012-2025

The 1996 Vietti Barolo Rocche gave a classic Barolo performance on this evening. The nose was fresh yet powerful all at once with a cool refreshing quality, as floral notes of roses, then tar and leather, red fruits and dusty ash came forward. The palate showed well-defined red fruits against a stiff structure of silky tannin and acid, as flavors of licorice and hints of tobacco showed through. The finish was fresh yet still restrained. This bottle will benefit from another five-plus years in the cellar before really starting to strut its stuff. (94 points)

Sunday, March 07, 2010 - Darker color than expected with a dark ruby red fading only slightly around the edges. The nose on the wine is incredibly expressive with deep black cherry, prunes, dried flowers and beef broth, initially. With more time in glass you find crushed, dried leaves and fruit compote. The palate is still masked to a small degree by a wall of tongue coating tannin but still enjoyable with red fruits, tobacco and iodine. The finish shows bitter cocoa and sour cranberry fruit.
