Lot #2997. Bruno Giacosa Barolo Riserva Collina Rionda di Serralunga d'Alba 1989

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Region: Italy, Piedmont, Barolo.
Score: 100 WA.
"I suspect over the years I have had more than my fair share of the 1989 Barolo Riserva Collina Rionda. After all, there were only 2,838 bottles produced. Still, I never fail to be utterly seduced by this transcendental, emotionally moving Barolo. The Rionda isn’t Giacosa’s most powerful wine, rather it is a Barolo built on elegance. Impossibly fine, silky tannins frame subtle, yet incredibly vivid aromatics that meld into a gorgeous core of violets, roses, tar, licorice and minerals. Still incredibly fresh, this towering Barolo has another 20+ years of life ahead. It remains Giacosa’s foremost masterpiece and one of the greatest wines ever made." Wine Advocate #187, Feb 2010
Provenance: The Atlantic Cellar
Notes: Very top shoulder, nicked capsule, very lightly scuffed label, #0871.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $4,750
