    April 6, 2014 - A very nice, fruit forward modern Barolo. The wine is a crimson red and fairly transparent. The nose as well defined red fruit, tobacco and minerality. On the palate the fruit continued to show, the acidity and tannins were balanced. The finish was subtle with a smokey leather quality. The wine is a good value with lots to like. 5+12+16+8=91

    April 4, 2014 - The fruit showed right off the bat, and then withdrew for a couple of hours. The wine has a lovely acidity, structure and tannin profile, with vibrant fruit after a two hour decant. Leather, spices and tar on the nose, and a very long finish. Drink now or hold.
