1998 Luigi Einaudi Barolo

SKU #1220601 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 1998 Barolo exhibits a saturated plum/ruby color as well as a classic Nebbiolo perfume of melted road tar, rose petals, tobacco, and sweet cherry jam. Dense, moderately tannic, and balanced, it possesses great fruit on the attack, mid-palate, and finish. The 1998 is concentrated, with sweet tannin and fragrance. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2018. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2001)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Luigi Einaudi was Italy’s first president. The estate was founded in 1897, and to this day is run by his granddaughter, Paola Einaudi. The wine has a very floral nose of rose petals and lavender. Raspberry flavors and a woodiness derived from Slavonian oak are complex yet finish soft and appealing. Inner quote mark (11/2002)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Full ruby-red. Black raspberry, currant, maple syrup and oak on the nose. Sweet, tangy, youthfully aggressive flavors of black raspberry, menthol and oak. A rather serious but supple normale, finishing with substantial, broad tannins and a hint of medicinal austerity. Inner quote mark (11/2002)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Pretty aromas of roses, prunes and cedar follow through to medium body, with firm tannins and a floral, berry aftertaste. Best after 2005. (JS) Inner quote mark (11/2002)
