1999 Aldo Conterno Barolo Granbussia Riserva
1999 Angelo Gaja Costa Russi
1999 Angelo Gaja Sori San Lorenzo
1999 Angelo Gaja Sori Tildin
"The 1999 Sori Tildin is a knockout wine. It offers a classic, expressive nose of flowers and spices and somewhat austere profile of sweet red fruit, minerals and menthol on a mid-weight frame. It is the hardest of these wines to read today, but I found myself coming back to it often and discovering new nuances with each taste."
