  • Huge, ripe strawberry purée with some stems apparent on the nose. More feminine in style, lighter in color and elegant fruit concentration. Good acidic back bone, tannins are moderate and forgiving, not nearly as tight or tense as most 2006 Barolo. This bottle was double decanted about five hours before serving, and consumed over 2-3 hours.

  • {tasted blind} Another taster marked this as flawed - too much brett. I got some brett, but I also got some VA - both dissipated with just 5 minutes of swirling. Loved this wine, such a perfumed nose, bright and energetic. The palate is med>full, clearly structured. Then the nose again, herbs, floral, sweet core of red fruits and turned soil notes, just fantastic. A touch of EtOH on the finish suggests waiting at least 5 years before re-tasting. My kind of wine. highly recommended

  • Decanted at restaurant. Deep purple color; blackcurrant nose, somewhat muted. Medium bodied black cherries, medium tannins good structure. Flavors somewhat muted but starting to open up, probably a few years from beginning peak drinking window. I would hold for at least another 2-3 years. If drink now, best to open and air out for 45 min. Good potential.

  • As before, this has enchanting and pretty feminine qualities but has a firm backbone on savoury tannin. All the classic, traditional Nebbiolo notes are there and overall the package has softened a little over the last year or so but it is still bit quite where I think it ought to be - maturity promises this wine great things.
