Community Tasting Notes 2

  • Rgentile Likes this wine: (90 points)

    May 29, 2014 - Eye:Reddish brown hue with a orange copper rim. Nose:Dried Cherry, oak, little tar and thyme. Palate: Medium plus acidity more Dried cherries and a sense of smokiness on the finish. Tannins were a bit high.

    Over all a nice Barolo true to character but i think a little young. Will be nice to revisit in another 3-5yrs, good potential.

    This wine was much more enjoyable Day 2...if you are opening now a long decant will do it great justice.

    December 26, 2013 - Fantastic. Lithe and sinuous, with dried cranberry and tar, sly acidity, and a long finish. Poured blind, this could easily be mistaken for Grand Cru Burgundy. It's not very tannic so don't be afraid to open one now.
