Wine Spectator 92 points - The 2004 Barolo is a floral mid-weight Barolo with terrific delineation and clarity in its dark fruit, menthol and spices. The tannins remain a touch firm, but the wine’s balance is impeccable, particularly at this level. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020.

2004 SCHIAVENZA BAROLO
"Beginning to mellow, this features aromas of truffle, licorice and fruitcake, followed by flavors of licorice, tar, tobacco and spice. The tannins still carry a big stick, yet are beginning to melt into the sweet fruit and ample flesh. Offers a fine menthol and mineral aftertaste. Best from 2012 through 2020."
