Traditional old world style and does it well, but it lacks a second gear.

Tea, tar, and tobacco. Drinking well right now and, for me, I wouldn’t go much farther, but definitely still alive.

2003 was not a great vintage in Europe due to the extreme heat, but generally I have found that good producers still made enjoyable wines that can be found for great prices. Barolo has largely proved to be the exception.
