Another first for me, the 1978 Collina Rionda was without question the most discussed wine of the night. All of the elements of a great Barolo are there from the beautiful nose with its promising notes of roses, violets, tar, and menthol to the wine’s great structure, but for some reason things don’t seem to come together and this wine’s potential is never quite realized in the glass. While most of the wines seem to have responded positively to several hours’ decanting, this wine appears to have been the exception. - Antonio Galloni
