Jul. 14, 2004: ELIO GRASSO Barolo Ginestra Vigna Casa Maté 2000 (95 points, $58)

Wonderful aromas of pressed flowers and blackberries with hints of cinnamon. Full-bodied, with a jammy, big fruity style and a long caressing finish. Chewy though. This shows splendid structure. As good as the 1997. Best after 2009. 1,080 cases made. High —James Suckling

Jul. 12, 2004: GAJA Langhe Sperss 2000 (95 points, $225)

Incredible amount of fruit and character in this wine with mint, mineral, blackberry and plum aromas. Then turns to tobacco and tar. Full-bodied, with an iron-cast core of fruit and velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Incredibly tight and powerful. G —James Suckling

Jul. 09, 2004: AZELIA Barolo Bricco Fiasco 2000 (95 points, $78)

The nose of this wine smells like crushed Nebbiolo with hints of fresh flowers and Indian spices. Full-bodied, with incredibly round, soft tannins. It beckons you to drink it. Long and velvety finish. Voluptuous. Azelia has come into its own. Serve this —James Suckling

Jul. 08, 2004: GAJA Langhe Sorì Tildìn 2000 (96 points, $340)

Amazing aromas of plums, strawberries, and minerals follow through to a full-bodied palate, with ultraripe tannins and a long mineral, blackberry aftertaste. Gorgeous. So fresh and structured. Best after 2010. 1,050 cases made. Collectible. From Italy. —James Suckling

Jul. 05, 2004: ALDO CONTERNO Barolo Cicala 2000 (96 points, $143)

This is a big, powerful red with loads of floral, berry, plum and truffle aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, yet refined. It builds on the palate with lots of racy tannins and an ultralong finish. This is a long-ager. Nearly matches the amazing 1996 in qual —James Suckling
