    November 6, 2020 - Powerful right from the start. The fruit includes sweet cherry, violet and ripe cherries, coated in licorice and asphalt. The tannic surge is not unlike the grounds of boiled coffee, although not quite as bitter. It's an exquisite and impressive wine although I can't quite seem to find a special expression or personality, and that barrs it from reaching the pantheon,

    October 11, 2020 - Poured into decanter and drank over 2h. This was the first of my own bottles from an OC. Unlike the equally high rated but in my eyes very mediocre 07 Brunello vintage, the 07 Barolos seem to have handled the hot year really well. After a beautifully balanced and playful 07 Vietti Castioglione a few weeks back this is an even better wine. Garnet with a thin translucent rim. Initially muted but then the wine opens up. None of the heat or burned notes one might fear to see in 07. Yes, the medium + tannins are clearly visible but the wine is still round and elegant, and beautifully aromatic without any alcoholic heat or burned fruit notes. Unlike some of the 07 Brunellos, also no sign of oxidization here. Will easily go for another 10 years but can drink now too.

    October 4, 2020 - Needs a two hour decant before it starts to open. Subtle tannins that soften. Dark cherry on the palate. Enjoy slow

    September 16, 2020 - Pop and pour, consumed over 3 hours. Nose: Medium-plus expressiveness, tar, black cherry, marzipan, and saddle leather. Palate: Medium bodied, black cherry and leather attack, great balance, Asian spice kick thru the mid-palate, tannins are present but in-check, builds in intensity from front to back with big spice, tar, and leather notes in the back-end. Finish: Lengthy sense of black cherry, leather and spice persists for a minute-plus. This is singing this evening, just a great wine with a decade plus prime drinking window left.
