Robert Parker 92
1993 Barolo Collina Rionda-Medium ruby. Giacosa’s 1993 Collina Rionda, the last vintage for this wine, is mature and an excellent choice for near-term drinking. It shows aromas of roses, raspberries, spices, tobacco and underbrush, followed by sweet red fruit in a soft, medium-bodied style with much charm and appeal. 92/drink now-, 11/05
The 1993 reveals shades of greatness in its sublime inner perfume. Mint, flowers, spices swirl around in the glass, adding complexity to the dark fruit. Over time the wine faded a bit, but it was absolutely singing for the first 30 minutes or so.
