Tasting Notes and Scores
The 2004 Barolo Fossati Case Nere Riserva 10 anni comes from a more balanced vintage (without big heat spikes) that shows a pretty garnet color. The structure is there and the bouquet is ever changing and fluid. There’s a hint of dark fruit followed by spice, cola, dark truffle with tar notes of black granite and pencil shaving. This is second year this wine is produced. The wine is bottled after 24 months in oak and rests in bottle for six to seven years. There’s a lot a fresh fruit left, despite its age. Drink: 2016-2034.

This is a Barolo that shows such depth and complexity with dried berry, mushroom and cedar character. It’s full-bodied plus has chewy tannins and incredible structure and length: it goes on for minutes. Everything is in proportion. This is aged for 10 years before release and shows mind-blowing depth and finesse. Drink or hold.
What a pleasure it is to taste the 2004 Barolo Riserva Fossati/Case Nere at this early stage. From one of the all-time great Voerzio vintages, the Fossati/Case Nere graces the palate with exquisite finesse, grace and class. Today, the 2004 is of course quite young, but the wine's balance and layered personality are simply exquisite. Recent bottles of the 2003 have been superb, so I can only imagine what the 2004 might be like when it starts hitting their stride a few years from now.
