1982 Borgogno Barolo

Quite impressive wine. Ruby with orange edges. On the nose, developed, medium+ intensity, plum, cherry, chalky soil, clove, anise, flowers, tar, some oak, and some earth as well. On the palate, dry, medium intensity, medium tannin, medium acidity, still showing off it fruit and tannins, with beautiful balance, and a stellar finish. I heard this producer made wines with serious longevity, but come on this wine is almost 30 and still vibrant and youthful.
