    Barolo 1985
    Collina Rionda, B. Giacosa
    Bottle (1)

    "Mature and earthy, it's very tight, firm and tannic, with concentrated anise, tar and raisin flavors on the finish; this is built to need until 1998 to 2000 to soften enough to tell where it's going. Doesn't show the richness one expects at this point." (86 pts. Wine Spectator, Apr. 1991)

    “The 1985 was radiant, rich and powerful, very much in the style of the vintage. Generous dark fruit, leather and licorice came together beautifully in a Barolo whose weight and glycerol could be felt on the palate. It was another of the wines that continued to improve over several hours. I still have fond memories of perfect bottle of the 1985 going toe to toe with the 1985 Monfortino a few years ago and not missing a beat. Along with the 1971, the 1985 is the best white label Rionda Giacosa ever made.” (96 pts. Antonio Galloni, Vinous, June 2010)
