Dec. 21, 2000: ELIO ALTARE Barolo Vigneto Arborina 1996 (96 points, $67)

There's a lot to chase after from Piedmont these days -- here's another classic Barolo. The'96 Vigneto Arborina from Altare is a superpowerful wine, marked by amazing fruit concentration. It's full-bodied, with a wonderful core of very ripe blackberry cha —James Suckling

Dec. 20, 2000: MICHELE CHIARLO Barolo Cannubi (94 points, $76)

An extremely focused Barolo, with raspberry, wet earth and toasted oak, this wine is full in body, with velvety tannins and a long aftertaste echoing mineral and fruit. Best after 2005. 800 cases made. —James Suckling

Dec. 18, 2000: PIO CESARE Barolo Ornato (96 points, $105)

Generous and meaty. Gloriously rich character, with delightful aromas of plums, fresh flowers and spices. The wine is full-bodied with meaty, earthy, plummy flavors and big, thick and velvety tannins. Best from 2004 through 2012. 1,000 cases made. —James Suckling

Dec. 14, 2000: PENFOLDS Shiraz South Australia Grange (97 points, $185)

Max Schubert's Grange helped put Australian wine on the map, so to speak. The just released '95 vintage is another in a string of classic releases for this wine. It's massive, majestic in its proportions, combining power and grace in equal measure. Flavor —Harvey Steiman

Dec. 11, 2000: GAJA Barbaresco (95 points, $160)

Super Barbaresco, from one of the top producers in the region. Intense aromas of ripe plums, violets and berries lead to a full-bodied palate with chewy tannins. Long finish tastes of superripe fruit. Lovely and powerful wine. Best after 2005. 5,000 cases —James Suckling
