Tastes very young. Darker garnet coloured. Quite powerful. Classic Nebbiolo flavours, no oak - not super complex and there's some alcoholic heat there. I respect the wine, but just not really feeling it. Would like a bit more elegance.
Toast for Hugo before NYC marathon (at Chanoch Reichenberg): dark red-purple colour classic Barolo earthy-fruity aroma with spicy-floral hints medium-full bodied, grip tannins, too tight, very young wine, good acidity and harmony, sweet cherries, mellows in the glass, but too tannic at the moment. requires further ageing of 2-4 years at least, then will be much better.
Nose : licorice, menthol, rose petal, medicinal herbs, chrysanthemum Palate : sweet cherries, earth, a hint of tomato, a hint"Po Chai Pills"(on the 2nd day)
Too tannic at the moment. Compared to Dagromis 2007, this is better on the mid-palate and has more expressive aromas. But at the same time more tannic. I can only give these two 90. Not quite impressive.
Prepared by my friends. He opened the bottle 9 hours and then recork before our dinner. Tasted vertically with Dagromis 2007. It showed a lighter weight and softer style. Surprisingly less powerful than 2007. Quite open and fresh licorice and rose petal aroma. The taste was a bit weak and showed no obvious character as most entry level Barolo. Drank smoothly over the dinner.
