    June 10, 2017 - Decanted for about 2 hours went very well with food at Mozza. Earthy, forest floor but still had dark fruit notes.

    January 4, 2014 - This wine is still very young, with hard tannins persisting, primary fruit, and a closed structure. If you can wait, please do. It was still pleasant drinking, with some rose and violet emerging on the nose, and a sinewy mass of dark berry fruit. The structure is good and I think this will have the stuffing to emerge as an evolved and graceful wine in 5-10 years time.

    December 3, 2012 - Decent but not a strong nose. Light mid-toned fruit and wood. Tasty mouth with a nice entry and a stout wooden finish. A bit of balsamic and some punishing wooden tannins. Not a lot of elegance or freshness but a good wine all the same.

    October 7, 2012 - PNP, Blueberries, truffles, dried cherries, hints of menthol, tannins are fully intergrated, very smooth.

    August 15, 2012 - Medium bright red with just a touch of brisking. Lovely feminine floral nose - more roses. Though maybe just a touch of VA or elsea slight "hotness" from a warm vintage. Relatively full bodied palate, quite generous and maybe with a structure that is a bit loose as the tannins aren't quite strong enough to set a tight framework. Nevertheless a lovely early drinking barolo that will probably peak within the decade.
