Red and light garnet, almost white thin rim; after 2 hours in decanter nose of tar and a bit of flowers, after another couple of hours – more fruits, some light cedar wood; second day – addition of cooked black fruits including prunes. Medium body Nicely integrated palate, good acidity, very fresh, nicely structured and food friendly; good entry level Barolo with great price/performance and at very good time slot, don’t think this will improve substantially.
Wow, still big and powerful on opening, with tons of aromatics (mostly cherry and tar/rubber) and a slightly bricked colour. Lots of tannin. Yet the flavour profile is slightly oxidized. Excellent pairing with lamb rack, and opened up nicely over a couple hours.
