Agricola Molino Ausario Barbaresco, 2000

Front Item PhotoA considerably older wine than the two Barolos (below), but the bouquet was much more muted when the cork was popped. Flavors were also a bit reticent, but with airing this wine really opened up.

Actually darker than the Guido Porro Barolo. Bouquet develops nicely over several hours--cherries, violets, leather. The flavors, thouigh, are glorious, even compared to the two Barolos on the table. The cherry component is brighter with more red tints--probably because of higher acidity. Dances on the palate. This wine is my favorite of the evening, and that is saying a lot.
