1996 Poderi Cola, Barbaresco, Tenuta Roncaglie (RT92) This gem has come of age over the past few years and is now showing superb development combined with the typicity of the vintage. On the lighter, more translucent side of the Nebbiolo equation, the 1996 Roncaglie reveals a pungent bouquet layered in red cherries, resinous pine and dried roses. The palate is as ethereal as the color, showing a classic elegance intrinsic to this vineyard and the tannins have integrated in a magnificent way. This is now in the zone and should hold here for another decade plus, so no hurry, but you can pull corks now with confidence. Drink 2016-2031+
