    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.

    May 1, 2018 - Very aromatic and full of ripe red fruit initially. Certainly very modernist but also not very characteristic of Barolo in many of the tasters opinions. The ripeness is accompanied by oak, vanilla, cigar, and herbs. With a couple hours of air, it becomes more Barolo-like with rose petals and tar. Perhaps more aging will move it more towards classic Barolo but the tannins are almost full resolves and the extraordinarily opulent nose is really enjoyable now. Definitely shows the ripeness of 1997.
