Wine Description

(2003 Vintage) "The 2003 Barolo Le Vigne may have a slight edge over the Cannubi Boschis inthis vintage, as the ability to blend fruit from various microclimates was abig advantage. It is a full-bodied, soft-textured Barolo with lively color andplenty of ripe red fruit, menthol and spices. This is an especially fresh,vibrant wine for the vintage, with tannins that are particularly refined. Arecent vertical of Le Vigne back to 1995 found the 1995, 1997 and 1998 drinkingwell and the 1996, 1999, 2000 and 2001 approachable, but still with additionalupside potential. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2015.
