    December 7, 2014 - Asphalt, rasberry, pine, leather and smoke on the palate. Drinking nicely now. Be even better in a few years, but i could not wait.

    August 29, 2014 - Strong tannins. Enjoyable, but not hugely complex on the finish.

    August 3, 2014 - Popped and poured... Big attack of fruit, almost grapey, sweet, followed by mentholated/medicinal notes. Big, fleshy tannins kick in with air, giving this a tarry, almost stewed profile. Tastes like young Bordeaux from a ripe year but with plenty of acidity. Good depth, nice flavors, just too young right now. I'd say very good upside. 92+ pts.

    June 17, 2014 - Embracing, firmly drying tannins and nice minerality. Moderately dark fruit, rose, tar and liquorice nose. Good balance. Great but perhaps suffers from the reputation of the basic bottling which is so good one wants something distinct from the riservas. Again, utterly delicious, bold flavours, mouth-wateringly sharp acidity and satisfyingly Piedmont but I'm not convinced the basic cru wouldn't offer a bigger bang for the buck. 91

    April 27, 2014 - I totally agree with Wink's review. Spot on. This wine is very elegant and silky with a long life ahead, but is very drinkable now. It was great before food, but with food...oh my, fantastic. Initial pour looked liked a Pinot Noir. Very light and cherry color. But was strong with lots of body. Got smoother in the glass. I bought this bottle from a restaurant/retail place in Barolo. I will have to back to Barolo to pick up more bottles!
