A truly lovely vintage with a wine of great balance and elegance.
Plum and fresh herbs, such as tarragon and oregano. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and a fruity, wet earth character. Rich and chewy. Lots of fruit and tannins in reserve.--1998 Piedmont blind retrospective (2008). Best after 2010.
The 1998 Barolo Caro Bric is an elegant, stylish. Aromas of black cherry liqueur, smoke, minerals, and new saddle leather are followed by a medium-bodied wine with a distinctive, restrained style.
