The 2004 Riserva presents with deep ruby red with orange highlights. An intense bouquet with scents of withered flowers, liquorices, tobacco and spice (cinnamon) are exibited. Full tasted, full bodied, with soft tannins, that recalls the olfactory sensations. A pleasant “goudron” and truffle blend perfectly with flower and spices notes.

"The 2004 Barolo Riserva is an amazing wine with a full load of mint, cassis, licorice, tar, cedar and cola. You need to go back to the glass time and time again to fully comprehend the enormity of the bouquet. Once you absorb that first wave of aromas, a second wave of leather, spice and tobacco follows in quick succession. Dark concentration and density give this Barolo an upper hand when it comes to longevity."
