    Winemaker's Notes:

    From marly-calcareous soil at over 984 feet above sea level, aging is 20% in barrique, 80% in barrel. Incredible breed, intense and ample bouquet, full-bodied and velvety on the palate, with a lingering finish of spice, truffles and goudron. A cellar life up to 20- 25 years.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Blackberry and milk chocolate aromas. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a balance of plum and red fruits in the aftertaste. Best after 2012.

    Like the 2003, Einaudi’s 2004 Barolo is another superb effort at this level. It offers gorgeous aromatics and well articulated fruit on a medium-bodied frame of notable elegance. This bottling is made from the less well-exposed parcels of the Via Nuova vineyard and was the only Barolo that was in bottle at the time of my November visit. The wine spent 16 months in barrique (40-50% new) followed by 15 months in 25 hectoliter casks.
