Virna Borgogno Barolo 2004

2004, one of the great recent vintages in Piedmont. This classically-styled Barolo (no barriques) showcases the vintage beautifully, and is just entering its "drink now" window. Get tar and anise on the nose, with dried cherry, rose hips and tobacco emerging on the palate. Long finish with more anise and a whiff of eucalyptus. Give it some time in the decanter to let the tannins settle down a bit. Rare to see a mature Barolo of this quality at this price.
