Served on the colder side. Think this wine is helped by the lower temprature. The palate shows a juicy and fresh blueberry and strawberry mix. The finnish is a bit disappointment after the initial flavours. A bit too ripe fruit and some heat.

    This wine was such a split experience. Really liked the palate, but not that much the finnish.

Raw meat, chocolate, vanilla. blueberries and blackberries. Good finnish with soft tannins. Oily and bloody texture and feel. It's drinkable pnp right now, but should improve with age when oak will integrate even better and the wine calms down a bit.

Traditional Barolo at its best. Absolutely outstanding. Acidity, incredible silky tannins and terrific sweetness of red fruits is merging into breathtaking harmony. Had this wine 7 or 8 times over the last two years and it was each time an unforgettable moment. 98+
Could easily compete against a great Musigny!

Consistent to my previous note. It is difficult to envision a smoother, sappier and more aromatic Barolo than this. Harsh Nebbiolo tannins, not here. Whenever I serve this to guests it is very popular! Barolo, Musigny style! Early in its drinking window. Outstanding.
