flagNorthern Italy / Italy

The 1996 Barolo exhibits a saturated, not very evolved dark ruby color. It reveals notes of sur-maturite in its ripe, fruity style. The 1996 is broodingly backward, spicy, rich, and highly extracted. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2010. A Marc de Grazia Selection, various American importers, including Michael Skurnik, Syosset, NY; tel. (516) 677-9300, Vin Divino, Chicago, IL; tel.
