Aromas of blackberries with plums and dried fruits follow through to a full-bodied palate, with chewy tannins and a long, long finish. This is a wonderful single-vineyard wine from Silvio Grasso.
Bright red-ruby. Sexy, penetrating, rather pinot-like aromas of cherry, raspberry, mace and nutmeg. Then sweet, broad and firmly built, with cool red fruit and mineral flavors nicely framed by firm acids...
The dark ruby 2001 Barolo Giachini presents a complex nose of spices, menthol and minerals. Round and soft on the palate, it offers plenty of ripe red fruit and toasted oak flavors, with good length and terrific overall balance.
