1999 Roberto Voerzio Riserva Vecchie Viti dei Capalot e delle Brunate 1.5L
Vinous: 97 Points
Another stunning wine, the 1999 Barolo Riserva Vecchie Viti dei Capalot e delle Brunate bursts from the glass with superb depth and pure power. Black fruit, smoke, tar, licorice and menthol are some of the many notes that take shape in the glass. The Capalot is bottled only in magnum, and in this vintage, the big bottle keeps the wine incredibly fresh and structured. This huge, dramatic wine finds a measure of finesse in the glass, but it is best left alone for at least a few years. The dark, brooding personality of the year comes through in spades.
