The 2006 Barolo Brunate-Le Coste flows from the glass with tons of dark fruit wrapped around a deep, muscular core. I am too young to have tasted the 1989 when it was first released, but I imagine it might very well have been like this. The sheer density of the fruit is remarkable, while the wine’s balance is first-rate. With time, sweet balsamic mentholated notes appear, along with spices, violets, leather and licorice, all supported by the wine’s muscular, broad-shouldered frame. This is a classic among classics and a must-have wine for anyone serious about great Barolo. The more it sat in the glass, the more I loved it. Anticipated maturity: 2026-2046. Wine Advocate 97


A far more powerful, sinewy wine than the 2004, the 2006 Barolo Brunate - Le Coste is pure muscle. The bright red color and intense tannins show the 2006 is still an infant. It’s impossible not to admire the purity of the flavors and the wine’s overall precision. Although the 2006 has a very bright future, it won’t be anywhere close to its best for another decade or so. Readers who own the 2006 should be positively thrilled. I know I am. -- Antonio Galloni 98
