Barolo, Vecchie Vigne, 2000

Tasting Note:

The Vecchie Vigne is a blend of old vines from Rocche and Giachini aged in more new oak than for the regular Crus, about 75%. The 2000 displays all of the virtues and none of the vices of a hot vintage.

A massive but wonderfully poised mouthful of a wine.
