    June 18, 2020 - Very tight on opening. Decanted 2 hrs. Opened up nicely. Light nose of tart cherries and strawberries, medium light palate of same fruits. medium finish light on tannins. Nice QPR Langhe Nebbiolo. I don't thinkfurther aging will improve the wine, so drink over next 2-3 yrs.

    April 20, 2019 - Decanted 1 hour in advance, enjoyed over 1.5 hours. Lots of character on the nose: cherry and tar sure, but also beef jerky and tomato leaf. A markedly masculine vibe to it. On the palate it has really good volume and a terrific structure. Dry and savory with awesome grip, this wine is rough and rugged and very charismatic. Indeed very much old school all the way, there is nothing polished nor smooth about it but it is authentic and delicious and clearly extremely well made. A true baby-Barolo with good depth and really firm mouthfeel, awesome length as well.

    July 12, 2017 - This 2012 Langhe Nebbiolo is already mature. Held since release, the color is a darker garnet>ruby. Aromas are classic Nebbiolo, but there's a signature spice/perfume thing going on that's rather unique; in a good way, of course. Medium-bodied the red fruits are juicy, almost plump by Nebbiolo standards, but there's plenty of natural acidity to keep this well-proportioned and tasting fresh. Take some time with this, the perfumes, subtle in a way, are great fun. That said, I don't see any reason to wait, this is ready. Enjoy now or over the next few years. 14,0% abv. recommended

    PnP, served non-blind, the wine was linear throughout the course of a 2 hour lunch.

    January 24, 2017 - Nice showing, starting to take on more secondary aromas and resolution. Still with good freshness and while not completely devoid of sweetness, there is more of a savory, animale element starting to take hold. A nice pair with tri-tip.
