The blockbuster 1998 Barolo Giachini Vecchie Vigne is produced from 40,60 year old Nebbiolo vines. An awesome follow-up to the spectacular 1997, the dark ruby/garnet-colored, expressive 1998 boasts a provocative bouquet of roasted espresso, chocolate, black cherry liqueur, soy, earth, herbs, leather, and cherry cough syrup. Powerful, unctuously textured flavors cascade over the palate revealing no hard edges. It is a wine of great purity and intensity, as well as an awesome finish. This is truly spectacular Barolo. Anticipated maturity: now-2012. 95+ RP 1998 Barolo Vigna Giachini Vecchie Vigne: Saturated red-ruby. Vibrant but superripe aromas of kirsch, minerals, menthol and smoky oak. Supersweet and densely packed, but impeccably delineated; a wine of great intensity and finesse. Compared to the basic Giachini sample, this has more creamy volume and even more length. Here the substantial tannins melt into the wine's bottomless middle. A  superstar  vintage. 93-96 ST.
