1999 Clerico, Barolo, Percristina (RT94+) SO’ed in the morning. Dense, dark and brooding, heavy balsamic notes dominate the palate, backed up by deep black cherry with resinous lift. Surprisingly soft on the palate, the overall impression leaves on feeling like it’s slightly closed down and just not giving all it has to give. Rich and full figured in the mouth, with time oak tannins enunciate the finish, making it chewier and chewier. Drink 2019-2034+
