    August 6, 2017 - Light ruby red in color... lighter color than expected. Nose doesn't give up much but maybe a hint of cherry fruit and oak. On the palate this is still a young, tannic wine. Oak is the dominant flavor on the palate with a hint of vanilla and cherries. A few reviews said this is ready to drink but I think this needs a few more years. Tasting note based on a 45 minute decant.

    July 6, 2017 - This wine rocked! Decanted for 30-45 minutes and enjoyed over the next hour. An awesome lush nose of dark berry, red stone fruit, mushroom and flowers leading to a an awesome palate with smooth tannin and nice acidity. Enjoyed at the Farmer's Union for my birthday.

    May 29, 2017 - Vinosphere (Town Hall, Sydney): Polished oak, cream, vanilla, cherry fruit. Tight chewy tannins, big bold, massive in fact. Time required.

    May 9, 2017 - Mediun brick. Fruit forward nose with excellent Barolo typicity, tobacco, sandal wood, cherry. Rich palate, good acidity, tannins still young of course but can be consumed wih a short decant.

    May 1, 2017 - Un Barolo corretto senza difetti fatto bene, che restituisce in bocca una buona piacevolezza. A distanza di ore, con l'aria, si scompone un po' diventando un po' "duro" di difficile beva.
