Community Tasting Note

  • Nanda wrote: 90 points

    February 26, 2018 - Dinner at Formento's (Chicago, IL): Initially there was some talk that this might be an off bottle. We all came to agree that it was just an ornery bottle, even after an 8+ hour decant. With time in the glass this did show to be quite classic, if a little cranky and brooding. What emerged is a classic Barolo with tar, spice and black cherry. It's still stern, but you can seep the potential. 5+ points of upside in a decade or so.
