The 2005 Pecchenino San Giuseppe Barolo, which has spent 24 months in oak barrels, has a light to medium body with intense aromas of integrated red currant, cedar, delicate vanilla and liquorice. Tannins are refined (decant for longer than 30 min to fully open up) and the finish is long and smooth. Great to drink now, but will also hold for another 10+ years for sure. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 92 pts - I nice Barolo for amazing price, great value and a recommended buy. Tasted Nov/10.

New to barolo, but won't be a stranger if it's all this good. Drinking mostly Italian wine lately and am pretty convinced I will transplant my entire life there. Juice and oil, what else does a woman need for crying out loud? Nice, bricky red colour. Licorice, raisin and red curranty flavours. Just enough tannin to give your lips that squeegy feeling. LOVE. See you in Italy.
A hint of oak on the nose and full body that backs off a bit through the long finish. Big, in your face tannins on this one; I'd keep it in the cellar for a few years. Tasted November 2010.
