Giacomo Borgogno & Figli Barolo Riserva
Date: February 18th, 2014
Lovely balance to this 2004, with firm, racy tannins, but the fruit is harmonious and beautiful. Full body, integrated tannins and a chewy, fruity finish. Drink or hold.

The Riserva Barolo from the Vigna Liste cru proves to be an enticing and inviting wine with pristine aromas of forest berry, cola and leather. The wine’s persona is traditional and elegant and there’s enough structure and freshness to ensure long cellar aging: at least five to 10 more years. (12/1/2010) -91

GIACOMO BORGOGNO & FIGLI Barolo Riserva 2004
Release Price: $110
Issue: Web Only - 2013
A muscular, compact Barolo, offering meaty aromas of tar, with hints of licorice in the background. A cherry note comes forward with air. Rich on the palate and dense with tannins, this remains monolithic and somewhat closed. Non-blind Giacomo Borgogno vertical (October 2013). Best from 2015 through 2032. -BS
