1999 Vietti, Barolo, Brunate (RT96) Slow O-ed early in the day, the Vietti has shown up to play with its A game. Beautifully lifted bouquet layered with classic earth, sous bois and deep violets. Time in the glass reveals additional layers of personality and growing intensity. Its lovely mouthfeel, smooth and elegant, along with its finesse-driven style delivers a huge bonus to its already intense nose. Anise and a streak of minerality further define this wine’s ever-changing persona. This is clearly one of the outstanding wines of the night, what a stunner! Drink 2014-2039+
