    March 31, 2021 - The mineral finish of this wine is something I never have found in a Barolo before. So good!

    January 22, 2021 - Another excellent bottle of this. This is starting to be in the zone (at least from my perspective), but still requires some air. It‘s showing great aromatic complexity, structure and freshness, while just some of the tertiary aromatics are starting to come in. Lovely.

    January 5, 2021 - I thought this was a solid value. Juicy and modern, but still light on its feet. I gave it 5-6 hours in a decanter, after which it was in a nice spot.

    December 4, 2020 - Decanted 8 hours into 100ml bottles for zoom tasting. Deep coloured, compelling nose firm and powerful but fragrant as well. Lots of energy power with balance. Great unfurled potential but really enjoyable now. Plenty of room for improvement

    September 27, 2020 - After a year, since my last bottle, this wine is almost completely unchanged. Still utterly delicious and full of class while showing many of the same dark fruit notes as my last bottle.
