    April 24, 2014 - You can count me out on this wine… Boring, over-priced and one of the least exciting wines from Barolo, given its prestige. Taste anyone on this blind and they won't think it is so great, which is exactly what was done here with some of the industry's best a brightest somms, all of whom were left disappointed including me. The money wasted on this hype-bomb can buy you double the wines and double the effort from lesser known producers.
