Guasti Clemente 1990 Barolo Riserva, $55.24-$89.99, 91 points, appeared a coppery red and lightened to an orange with an almost yellow hue at the clear rim.
The aroma began somewhat unpleasant, but with a little air and time wafted caramel, wood, bourbon, chocolate, with hints of cedar and leather.
The medium body was smooth with good acidity, resolved mild tannin, flavors of bourbon, raisin, plum, and red cherry.
Finished long on the trailing palate with hints of the 13.5% alcohol and spice notes.
