    January 5, 2020 - Les tannins sont assez biens intégrés. Nous amorçons l’entrée dans les saveurs tertiaires avec des odeurs de tabac et de fruits rouges légèrement confitures. Bon vin mais légèrement décevant, je croyais qu’il nous laisserait une expérience plus ample et plus jeune avec un peu d’age.

    July 17, 2019 - At this point to sweet and to much tobaco for my taste. Almost like a dessert wine.

    June 9, 2019 - Color is deep crimson. Not quite as rust colored as I would have expected for this age, but very clean looking. Nose jumps with strong notes of rasperry jam, then the more traditional barolo floral, roses, and tobacco.

    Wow. First touch on the pallate is sweet and velvety with loads of red berry. Light tannins and acidity still there in the middle, but subtle and nuanced compared to most barolos. Some leather and tobacco on a very long finish. New world style that is not like most I have had. That said, I really like this wine and believe it is at an exceptional age. Outstanding!

    April 14, 2019 - Really nice Barolo, nice balance between fruit and minerals, modern style yet still holds on to the rustic old world flavors I love. Paired nicely with marinated pork tenderloin and air fried potatoes.
