    December 27, 2019 - Echoing other users, this is fading fast. Drinks 10 years older than it is (in my humble opinion).

    12/27/19, 5:53 AM - From my experience, it is Possible (even most likely) that the wine is just “asleep” and still very premature to drink rather than fading. Still less than 10 years old. I never drink Barolo (especially traditionalist Barolo like from both the Rinaldi’s) between 6 and 10 years old, almost always hard and shut down. I am planning to keep my 4 bottles until middle teens age before starting to drink them. If you have another, stow it away in a cellar or wine fridge for another 5-10 years if you can and I think you will have a dramatically better experience. Alternative is to decant it and give it 6-8 hours before drinking. Good Luck!
    Cheers!

    P.S. After reading all the reviews on CT I think there is a possibility some of the bottles imported/wholesaled may have been “cooked” i.e. exposed to much heat in storage or transport??? Don’t know if there is a common thread geographically to those who have bad bottles and those which seem to be very good??
