Wine Advocate (WA) Review

2000 Barolo—Medium ruby. The 2000 Barolo is less expressive and nuanced than the 1999, but it is an attractive wine offering notes of smoke, earthiness and sweet red fruit on a medium-bodied frame, with good length, soft, silky tannins and a more opulent, richer personality than the 1999.

Lovely purity of fruit, with plum and light wet earth on the nose. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a pretty, fresh finish. Not a blockbuster but refined and delicious already. Give it a few years. First generic Barolo for Giacosa in years.
