93pointsPio Cesare 2004 Barbaresco

Glorious aromas of coffee, vanilla and exotic spices mark the nose of this very impressive red. Strapping tannins are the backdrop for dense mineral, tar and leather flavors which carry over to the lingering finish. This is a wine built for the long haul. The tannins should start to be approachable in 2012 while the fruit density will carry it to 2020 and beyond.
