    May 5, 2016 - Served pnp. Vivid red in color, this wine was reticent to unwind at first but within 30 minutes, gorgeous aromas of redcurrant, Morello cherry, anise and rose petals came out. The mouth feel was medium bodied with moderate tannins that softened over the 90 minutes the bottle was open. The finish brought wonderful cherry elements as well as subtle tar like aromas. 14.5% abv.

    Purchased for $70US, this was an outstanding pairing for our meat dishes at a local Peruvian BYOB. The bottle opened up quickly after opening. Highly recommend to decant first.

    Imported by Petit Pois Corp., t/a Sussex Wine Merchants, Moorestown, NJ.

    March 24, 2015 - I almost never enjoy Barolo this young, but this proved the exception. Lots of red cherry with a freshness and open, popping, young vine character. Maybe not super complex, but this is so typically Piedmont in an accessible frame.

    Nose of coffee, berries and tobacco. Smooth palate. Nice.

    December 14, 2014 - A lovely classic wine with a half hour in decanter, perfect match with white truffles at angelini
