Needs about half an hour to open up to a beautiful nose of red berries, strawberries, and oak. Lovely elegance on the palate, fine soft tannins, reminds me of a Pomerol with new world touch but with finese of a great Pomerol. Dark red berries on the finish and a long fresh juicy finish. Very good.

Deep rich orange peel, citrus, lemons, limestone and chalk on the nose. Rich, creamy, peach, limes and lemon. Lemon custard, nutty and ripe peaches. A big wine, ripe fruit and mouthwatering acidity on the finish. This was popped and poured. On retrospect, this should have been opened earlier prior to serving.

Sweet candy, roses and cherry syrup on the nose. Sour cherries, raspberries and soft and elegant, and some bitterness sweetness to it that's intriguing and herbs on the finish. This is an eye-opener to this elegant side of Barolo. Definitely buy more.

Some greeness, oak, white pears, and some longans on the nose. Rich, savoury, white pears, peaches, and red apples and asparagus on the finish. Don't get the soury green apples/lemons for this style which tends to appeal more to me than the 98 krug served beside it.
