Very vigorous and translucent. Bright fresh cherry, some slightly shrill acid and lovely soft focussed fruit. As always with Borgogno, this is lean, mean and built to age forever. Good stuff.

Rich concentration & intensity, slightly unexpected of a wine of this age, dark black plum & anise, spent black tea, dirty dried leaves/undergrowth, it's a modern style developing extremely well.

Good but lacking focus--a bit muddied. Cloudy color, plenty of blood and iron, and smelled better than it was on the palate. Fun but not spectacular.

About as good as it gets for Barolo. Fully mature yet still lively. Great focus and texture. Earth, mushrooms and leather all here but integrated well with only a touch of blood and iron. Nothing out of place--everything in place. Yum!
