    Shows aromas of flowers and berries, with hints of vanilla and a touch of rosebud. Full-bodied and very concentrated, with big, chewy tannins and a long, powerful finish. Loaded with fruit and layered, with impressive concentration. A blockbuster. *Highly Recommended* (JS)

    The 2003 Barolo Campè has developed beautifully and gained notable focus since I first tasted it from barrel a few years ago. It opens with a huge, overripe nose that leads to a powerful expression of earthiness, spices and sweet fruit, with mentholated, balsamic overtones. Made in dense, powerful style, it offers outstanding length and a long, building finish. (AG)

    La Spinetta's 2003 Barolo Campè is a pretty wine to drink now and over the next 5-10 years, but probably on the shorter end of that window. Worn in leather, mocha, spices, smoke, plums and earthiness meld together nicely in the glass. The 80% new oak is totally integrated, while the tannins are also soft, yet retain a good measure of precision. Now fully mature or close to it, the 2003 will continue to drink nicely based on its density and depth. (AG)
