    February 25, 2016 - Much better than five years ago! Medium red; smoked, dark fruit with hint of caramel; nicely balanced, smooth and silky, some tannins and perhaps a slightly sharp ending; savoury aftertaste; very nice

  • Reblin Likes this wine: (89 points)

    October 5, 2015 - Good with food but a but heavy on the oak and tannin. Perhaps some more time in the cellar will help.

    June 6, 2015 - better 2 years ago. But really nice.

  • Claret & CdP Gang Likes this wine: (92 points)

    December 7, 2014 - Color: medium light red
    Nose: for me the classic Barolo nose, the best nose for the night in a Barolo evening that included 2000 elio altare arborina, 2004 Azelia vighera reserva and 2005 Giacomo conterno francia
    Palate: medium bodied, lovely balance, good Barolo with time left

  • farinas Likes this wine: (93 points)

    October 14, 2014 - Light to medium body color with good viscosity. The bouquet is definitely Barolo in all the classical sense, with fresh cut flowers, leather, engulfed by nice toasted oak with thick tannins. The acidity is very crisp however balanced and the tannins all present showing that this wine can last for much longer. Perfect accompaniment to my slowly braised oxtail with mushroom risotto. If looking for elegance over power, this is what you need. Perfecto! 93+.
