    February 6, 2014 - With about an hour of air, the palate shows black cherry intermixed with "browner" aspects such as the scent of beef soup and bullion cube, along with a bit of pine. This is good enough, but lacks the high notes and florality of really good Barolo. The texture and the structure are softening, and there is also a ton of sediment.

    February 5, 2014 - Consitantly a great value.

    January 7, 2014 - I hesitated over opening an ‘01 Barolo, but the La Serra typically drinks younger than the Brunate, and with some air this showed well. Floral, black cherries, enough tannin that I’m in no hurry, but not at all hard. B+/B

    December 27, 2013 - Not the wine it should have been. The cork was soaked, perhaps heat damage? 88 points but should be much better.

    August 11, 2013 - good, still young and tightly wound but quite floral and interesting. just enough acidity but the balance is a little heavy and broad
