Had it August 2008.
Cherries preserved in alcohol, rose, face powder, lipstick, aromatic herbs, balsamic, good tannin. Soft and long. Not unforgettable though

Classic traditional Vigna Rionda (according to Dario and Alessandro at Roscioli) with obvious but integrated herbal notes. Excellent overall balance and good length. The first of 6 awesome Barolos!

the oddero 1998 'vigna rionda' showed as always very classic and with myriad flavors that i love so much about this eminent serralunga site. lavender, iron, blood (orange), blackberries, cured meat and eucalyptus mingle with vivid tannins and a notable intensity in the palate. what a great wine, once again!

Pnp, respectively Coravin & pour. 1 large glass filled well ("Zalto Burgundy") and I left it breathe for about 1-2 hours.

I am reminded with every sip, why i love this MGA so much. The 1998 "Vigna Rionda" doesn't show a single sign of being almost 20 years old, instead I find in it a beguiling freshness, a pure & pretty ruby red color (maybe with very slight brick red signs) and a load of silky noble tannins. The nose is very terroir-typical and after drinking many many La Morra Baroli lately, it feels like an explosion of its own kind - in the nose and palate. Serralunga!

This - to me - is "Vigna Rionda" of Serralunga d'Alba in a very pretty expression: fine licorice with hints of cola, graphite, fruitcake, sweet exotic spices, cuban tobacco, fig jam. The more air it gets in the big "Zalto Burgundy" glass, the more flavors unfold. The tannins are well integrated, they feel warm and kinda "linger" in the back. I am really impressed, especially as 1998 is not the greatest vintage of the 90s.

Compared with a 2000 mag last year, this 1998 showed much fresher and felt younger. Blind, I would have said it's a 2001 perhaps
