Medium red. Somewhat autumnal aromas of bonfire, smoky oak and spices. Juicy, spicy and firm, with less density and flesh than this producer's other 2000 Barolos. The finish here is a bit dustier and drier, with strong spicy oak showing today.

The 2000 Barolo Prapo, from a vineyard in Serralunga d’Alba, is muscular. Classic aromas of rose petals, tar, and licorice are followed by a palate which features red fruit, tobacco, and wild fennel. Dense and brawny, it needs some time and patience. Drink: 2006-2018. Importer: Remy Amerique, New York, NY; tel. (212) 424-2202
Anticipated maturity: 2006-2018
