A rich, concentrated Nebbiolo.

Good but still pretty young at this point. Big and bold with Plum and Raisin, cigar box and spice. Still pretty tannic, needs to mellow out some and it should be very good.

Luftet 2 timer, så dekantert. God moden duft av mørke overmodne jordbær, tobakk og litt medisinskap + snev av alkohol. Veldig overmoden smak av det samme, men i tillegg tørket frukt. Veldig utviklet flaske med "rotete" smak, litt lukket frukt, aggressiv tannin og bra syre. Dag 2 - ikke bedre. Dårlig flaske, varmeskadet - fra Phillipsonwine.

5 hours open before drinking, would benefit from extra years in cellar. Wery enjoyable barolo.

Attractive red and blue fruit on the nose. Some leather and funk too, as expected for Piedmont. On the palate, unresolved tannins, high acid and much minerality. On the whole, it was not interesting nor enjoyable. Eaten with spaghetti bolognese.

Decanted 8 hours. Initially pale garnet with orange edges, much darker later. There is no getting around the initially shock of tartness, a problem mitigated by food, and as it turns out, time. The nose is oldest, musty flowers and wet wood, and ripe red fruit. The palate became notably sweeter at about hour 10, hard to believe that a 49-year-old wine from a hardly stellar vintage needs all this air, but evidently it does. The tannins don't show up until the finish, soft but still robust, with a fruity tart tang and a little pucker. Enjoyed with sous vide chicken thighs and polano cheddar grits. not mainstream but a lovely sideshow.

Darker, fruitier, fresher day 2.

I've had this wine in my glas all winter long (my 8 bottle since sept-14). It's a very different taste from classic Nebbiolo. Very light but still with a nice mature smell. Simply a friendly red wine!

Best bottle yet. Classic strawberry, tar and tobacco. Very encouraging that it gained in richness and shed some oak from revious bottle.

An utter disappointment in that it didn't speak Nebbiolo to me, nor did it speak Langhe. Muddled red fruits, with all too brief moments of floral perfume. Instead, (over) ripe berries, and a full mouth-feel. This is (more akin to) a cocktail wine, not something I want when reaching for a wine from Barolo region. I've saved 1/3 of the bottle, and will revisit on the second day, with updates if this somehow manages to redeem itself. Tasting this wine four years after its release is like running into the High School quarterback at the 25yr reunion to find he's 150lbs overweight with a face so red it's the color of a Christmas stocking, and remarking to yourself that 'he's really let himself go'. 15,0% abv.

Aerated to decanter 1 hr, served non-blind at cellar temp.

A medium garnet hue reveals a nose of roses, strawberry chewing gum, dried raisins and moist earth. Medium acidity and very high tannin reveal a medium body and a very long finish with a hint of mushroom. It is outstanding, but was disappointed by a lack of depth considering the price tag.

Subtle funk scent, followed by medium body tar and mineral flavor. Finishes with plentiful fine tannins. Serve it chilled in the summer.

Dense violet colour. I have not had this grape, Dolcetto, very many times. Very distinctive smell, slightly tart. On the palate, dry, notwithstanding the name of the grape. Slightly tannic, more acidic than I expected. On the palate, I get licorice and black cherry. Bitter finish. Rated 90 by Wine Advocate I think.

A beautiful wine - the nose was not very strong - but the palette is very impressive lots of powerfull fruit and oak some spices - I am getting a lot of black mature cherries and blueberries - medium tannins and acidity and the wine is very well integrated nice long powerfull aftertaste. A very elegant Barolo

Dark and brooding. Needs time to open. Muted fruit at first, some currant flavors.

Oh my, brett galore! I love brett but this is too one-dimensional. Leather, brett and (of course) cherries. Somewhat hollow and watery, almost no tannins at all. Drink now.

Bouquet with cherries, earth and autumn impressions. On the palate a slightly sweet start, cherries, pepper, tobacco and leather. Firm acidity and tannin and some slightly drying bitterness in the finish. Beautiful and elegant wine. Early maturity now and it can age 4 - 5+ years as well.

Sweet fruit, attractive oak, tobacco, and leather, this is big and very tannic but the tannins are noble and the style is really easy to appreciate without being overtly modern. A really goo drink.

Stor doft av örter, tallbar, salvia och jenka.
Fyllig och elegant smak av mogna körsbär, ljus choklad och vanilj. Burgundisk och silkig textur med mjuk tanninstruktur. Klunkvänlig modern Barolo utan direkt tanninbett. Lång behaglig eftersmak, insmickrande och snyggt vin.

Somewhat no-descript to me. Or maybe it was me. With extraction and richness on the palate, cedar or smoke or black fruits on the nose which at first I assume meant new oak but maybe its just using allot of old oak, or smaller oak? Tasty, would want to try again but wasn't totally blown away.
