March 31, 2016 - Nothing special here. Possibly a year or so past it's drinking window.

December 23, 2015 - Last tasted two years ago. It now has the color of a mature wine - a brownish-red, with bricking; a browning rim. Cherry, leather, sous bois, black pepper, hints of road tar, cedar. Excellent balance. At its apogee now and may even be declining from the peak of its maturity plateau. Drink up soon. As last time, a good pairing with Italian meat sauce (with Italian sausage) and pasta. Again, a better food wine. 24 hours later: still drinking quite well; may have a couple more years left.1 person found this helpful Comment

September 11, 2015 - From a magnum. Decanted and enjoyed with friends over 3 hours with pate, duck, truffle cheese and tomatoes. Golden pale red. Smooth and medium bodied with mature fruit, oak, spice and acid. Fine tannins were well integrated. A beautiful Barolo in its prime!

August 31, 2015 - Dark red with some bricking at the edges.
Soft nose, forest floor aromas.
Intense flavors of berry. Medium length.

June 10, 2015 - Comes across tighter and more youthful than the last bottle I'd enjoyed a few months back. This needs a few hours in the decanter to show well, but it's worth the wait. Layers of red fruit, tar, dried herbs and flowers, and a slightly bitter anise-like note on the back end, all conveyed on a medium weight frame that's carried by bright acids.
