It distinguishes itself by its enormous energy, a positive and heady wine with a gorgeous interplay of black fruits and minerals. The lively presence on the palate reminds one of the remarkable ability of Nebbiolo to retain its vibrant acidity while building its sugar reserves.

Wine AdvocateThe 2003 Barolo Garblet Sue, from the Fiasco vineyard in Castiglione Falletto, is massively powerful, tannic wine that will require considerable patience. This brooding Barolo is packed with ripe red cherries, tobacco, new leather and spices that come to life in a rich, weighty expression of Nebbiolo. With several hours of air the wine softened considerably. Still, it is best left untouched in the cellar for at least a few years. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020.

International Wine Cellar Medium red with an amber rim. Scented nose shows dried cherry, dried flowers, brown spices, licorice and menthol. Large-scaled, rich and deep; a step up in texture and richness from the foregoing 2003s. Layered and deep Barolo, with slightly exotic flavors of dried cherry and marzipan. And yet there's something almost elegant about this big, warm wine. Finishes with building, sweet tannins and impressive persistence. Very impressive for the year.
