Wine Advocate (WA) Review

WA 98
The formidable 1997 Barolo Capalot della Brunate Riserva is a candidate for Barolo of the vintage. A massive wine, it exhibits aromas and flavors of vitamins, coffee, chocolate, black cherry liqueur, licorice, and pain grille, a terrific palate entry with oodles of glycerin as well as extract, multiple flavor layers, and sweet tannin in the 60-second finish. There is plenty of tannin lurking beneath the surface, so it, ideally, needs to be aged for 6-7 years. It will age for three decades. This is a tour de force in winemaking!-Robert Parker

asted from magnum. Dark color. Intense aromas of white truffle, meat and earth, but then turns to ultrarich fruit from blackberry to raspberry. Full-bodied, with a powerful palate of velvety tannins and lots of ripe fruit. Yet it's balanced and refined. Deft winemaking here. Best after 2010. 110 cases made..-JS
