"The 2000 Barolo Brunate/Le Coste, tasted from magnum, is one of the wines of the vintage. Still imposing and massively structured, it is also one of the most powerful 2000s. It possesses marvelous richness and depth, with just enough radiance to make it somewhat approachable today. Almost. Readers who can still find magnums of the 2000 should not hesitate. This is a magnificent Barolo in every way."
