Like a lot of 2005 Barolo, this is big, tough and angular on opening. However, a day’s aeration reveals soy, roasted plum, some grated spice and old aceto balsamico. What it may lack in nuance, it makes up for in richness and impact.

Really liking Elvio Cogno's Bricco Pernice. Guessed this wrong as it was surprisingly elegant and balanced for 2005 at this point.

Fantastic. Somewhat pale but encompasses all of what's good about earthy but refined Italian reds.
