    January 8, 2020 - Colour is dark red, rim is brown-orange.
    Nose is open mainly roses, medical, spices and strawberry.
    Taste is Strong, extracted, tar, dry roses, but also elegant with a lot of coolness (2010 hallmark but this is also on a high position). Also not so dry, more fruit here than in most nebbiolos.
    Long finish - mellow tar if this exist

    July 4, 2019 - More fruitdriven and elegant than other Barolo 2010. Taken a bit early, but then the normal dryness and earthyness is less profound. Reminds me more of young NsG in Burgundy.

    Colour quite light brown-red, very nice classic nose with orangepeel, dry roses, herbal, tar. Taste is not dry and quite fruithy and cool style. Strawberry fruit. Medium long, very good balance now.

    February 13, 2017 - Sour strawberry and hints of cherry on the nose, along with a cranberry undertone. Tannic, for sure, as this is a 2010; a 4 hour decant softened the finish nicely. Natural pairing for osso buco, was sippable with salumi and cheese to start.

This is a big wine, but that is the Monlino style; BIG. Over-extracted fruit, discombobulated alcohol and relentless tannin, which is about the only thing that reminds me this is Nebbiolo. Molino is a good gateway producer to get new-world drinkers in to old-world wines, but given the price/value of this and the lack of typicity of the area, this is something to pass on.

    August 30, 2014 - Soft, velvety and elegant. Very concentrated and long. A great Barolo.

    March 19, 2014 - It's more than marketing rhetoric, it's obvious, actually, the Molino Cru wines have their own site-specific signatures, and this La Serra bottling (from ~ 45 yr old vines), is perhaps the most unique, with its cool, Côte de Nuits-ish demeanor, and slightly herbal styling. Solid mid-palate presence, even full at times, and like the other Molino Barolo bottlings this day, quite open for such a young wine, though no doubt most will prefer to give time for the serious tannins to unwind a little. Aromas and flavors of dark berries, pine forest, earth and herbs, with a cool vein of blackberry liqueur running through the center of it all. Serious, classy, and pure. recommended, drink thru 2037.

    {0,5 ha cru in the upper La Morra bowl, contiguous with Brunate. this is the second vintage from this site)
