Description:

Elio Grasso Barolo Riserva 2004
Piedmont
"The 2004 Barolo Riserva Runcot offers up an intriguing array of licorice, tobacco, spices, plums and prunes. The purity of the fruit here is beyond striking, and the wine shows great intensity as well as superb overall balance. The Runcot saw 45 days of maceration on the skins and spent 36 months in 100% new French oak, all of which it has absorbed with impeccable elegance. I imagine the 2004 Runcot will continue to gain weight in bottle, but even if it doesn't, it is pretty special today. What a beautiful wine! Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029." A. Galloni for TWA, 96 pts. 02/10
2 magnums
Estimate $350-500
