    February 16, 2020 - Gaining character over time... This is best bottle of the case that I have. A nice nose of tar and maybe cherry and rose. Great acidity and fine tannins.

    February 6, 2020 - Tasted at the Barolo and Barbaresco World Opening Tasting Event in NYC. Traditionally made barolo with a 45 day maceration and aging in Botte. With nearly a decade of age on this it is really starting to blossom. Medium Garnet color, dense flavors with a structure that is just starting to soften. It has earthy truffle, rose perfume, some anise/licorice and a darker fruit profile, more akin to blackberry and black plum than cherry and strawberry.still a decade plus of clear sailing for this but I would say it is just entering a good drinking window now.

    January 24, 2020 - Nice. Well made wine with god balance and some Nebbiolo notes. No panache, seems a bit stripped of personality. No sediment, modern technology? Prefer more traditional producers.

    February 1, 2019 - Double decanted. A lovely wine that is drinking well right now. Typical nose, typical palate with sour cherry. Good balance, tannins have integrated and has some zip left. No sediment at all (filtered??) and none of the passionate flavors that characterize outstanding barolo. This is very good, and nice to drink with a pasta or on its own. Doubt this will improve significantly.

    Awesome drinking spot right now - so pretty and giving. Completely balanced and a damn near perfect barolo. Not as gritty or ballzy as other ginesra, but thats their style and it serves them well.
