Community Tasting Notes (8) Avg Score: 90.5 points

  • Served blind; dark crimson with faint copper rim; decanted for 1-2 hours, nose is noble Italian, sweet rose, cinnamon, cherry and menthol, very aromatic and sexy but great depth, cedar, some slight oak influence but not obtrusive; sandalwood, cedar, pure meaty dried red cherry, ripe but not showing advancement like some 2007s, a hint of Pledge, medium plus body with softened tannin, with more air the wood tannin seemed to dry out the tongue a bit, great mid palate, glycerin, lots of anise on the medicinal cherry finish; very impressive; this was in a good spot but the balance conveyed this should be able to last quite a while longer.

  • Big extracted. Modern. 14.5% Alcohol. Nose of chocolate, vanilla, cassis. Dark fruit flavors, vanilla, tobacco, and earth. Tannic. Drinks a bit like an American Zin. Not quite as fruit forward. An unusual Barbaresco. Needs more time to balance out.

  • Really excellently put together. Juicy dark cherries, tar, and spice show not as much complexity on the palette as in the intoxicating nose. Hopefully this will change over time. Despite the dark flavors listed, the overall impression is of lightness, a nice foil compared to similar Piedmontese wines at this price. A little time can only change things for the good. 2017 next bottle.

  • - Brick color - This is really nice. Dark brick in color with strong earthiness and compelling but balanced oak spice and tannins. Plum fruit with refreshing minerality and acidic backbone. Really in a good spot at the start of its optimal drinking window.
