Young, but shows promise. Not much on the nose, just a generic whiff of dark berries and earth. Tannic and tight on the palate, with a skosh of black raspberry surrounded by barnyard. Tannins are omnipresent, but the mouthfeel is such that it's easy to see that this baby will be a silky treat in a few years when the tannins resolve.
Not decanted, slow-oxygenated overnight in the bottle & consumed over 1+ hours with dinner. Fairly restrained for the first hour in glass, but really not too bad for such a young Barolo. Over time, dusty cherry fruit came out to balance the taut acidity and relatively mild tannins. Just a little bit of something in the ash/tar/dried herbs family. Not a ton of depth, but not a bad little Barolo for $20 (last bottle on close-out at Costco). 88-89ish, admitting that I have a predilection to be generous to any competently made nebbiolo.
Roses, mild medicinal note and strawberry liquor on the nose. Taught red fruit palate with a moderate length finish. Much better on night 2 after pop and pour on night one. Quite tannic though plenty of fruit.
