    April 16, 2019 - Lovely nose, rustic, ripe red fruits, tertiary notes, hint of soy? Long finish, sweet ripe soft tannin, long finish. Drinking really well

    March 31, 2019 - Drank at a big wine dinner at Winvian. Decanted for and hour. This was the wine of the night, better than 98 Mouton and 98 Lafite and 04 Conterna Francina

    November 22, 2018 - A perfect wine for a perfect Thanksgiving day. Young in colour, lovely nose, complex, beautifully integrated.

    October 29, 2018 - Drank alongside the 1998, double decanted 3 hours ahead; accompanied pasta generously covered in slices of white truffle, ummmm.

    As I have come to expect from this wine, a youthful appearance, dark core. Floral nose laced with dark fruit, tar and hints of earth. Perfect balance, silky texture, layers of rich fruit, wonderful finish, drinking very well.

    The 1998 was a more closed, smaller scaled wine from a less opulent vintage, a solid Barolo which needs another 5-10 years in the cellar. I’d score it a 92-3 tonight.
