The Riserva San Giuseppe 2013 is still a very young wine. It is a closed, brooding wine of dense structure and great longevity. As befits the vintage, its character shows cool-vintage flavors and aromas, especially black cherries, licorice and truffle, with distinct dark floral notes. On the palate, the wine is still tight and focused, letting little escape but showing all the necessary elements for a long cellaring and - someday - a long drinking window. The finish is extremely long and currently shows the young tannins that will soften and integrate with time. The wine is best with second courses of red meat, simply grilled or roasted. Also good with hard and aged cheeses. It can also be enjoyed as a "vino da meditazione" (a wine for meditiation) by itself.

The 2013 Barolo Riserva Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppe is fabulous. The aromatics alone are thrilling. This is what Barolo is all about. Rose petal, holiday spice cake, leather, blood orange and macerated cherry abound. Silky and powerful, the 2013 shows tons of density on the palate and yet remains light on its feet for such a big wine. The wine's sensuality offers a mirage of accessibility, but the 2013 is best cellared for at least a handful of years. There is nothing like Barolo, and this is a terrific example. The 2013 saw 36-38 days on the skins followed by five years in cask, with a preference for larger and more neutral oak that allows for a more gradual pace of aging in the cellar than smaller casks.

A classically proportioned Barolo, featuring cherry, plum, tar, iron and eucalyptus flavors, with floral hints. Dense and tannic, offering balance and a long, mouthwatering finish. Solid tannins are offset by ripe fruit and fresh acidity. Best from 2023 through 2046.
