1998 Mauro Veglio Barolo Vigneto Arborina

1998 Podere Colla Barolo Bussia Dardi Le Rose

Two extraordinarily intense Baroli.  The Veglio Arborina was full-bodied, intensely savoury, smoke, dried roses, mushrooms.  The Dardi le Rose was a massive wall of tar and licorice for the first hour.  After that, I started to get sun-dried tomato, old leather, chestnut, dried dusty flowers.  Not for the delicate palate.

I opened up another bottle of the 98 Bussia Dardi Le Rose and this bottle was much nicer.  There wasn't that initial wall of tar and licorice.  It had a nice flavour of dried plums, sandalwood, game and old leather.  Much more enjoyable.
