    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.

    September 3, 2016 - Ordered at Centro Storico in Serralunga at the urging of Alessio, whose opinion I trust implicitly. Boy was he right about this bottle. An immediately expressive nose showing cherries, rose petals, lavender, cinnamon, leather, and potpourri. The tannins are sweet and grainy and the acid makes this light on its feet, the 14.5% alcohol barely noticeable. With air, flavors of blueberry, cassis, and candied red fruits. A wine to sit with. Phenomenal now, otherworldly later? Rated 3 on a scale of -1 to 3.

    May 29, 2016 - Evolved so much over 6 hours, tannins still firm but fruit more apparent, bouquet rich, still young but showing well.
