    October 14, 2019 - Very tasty and excellent value for the money. Plus, the story behind this wine is a great talking point.

    Decanted this for an hour before sitting down to a huge ribeye dinner. Still quite grippy tannins, but the classic Barolo flavors unfolded beautifully over the course of the meal... wish I’d decanted it earlier, as I now drink the last of the bottle some 6 hours after opening. The tannins are silkier now, the flavors melding more elegantly, the overall balance is quite impressive.

    Wish I’d bought more... because it’s still got several years of life left!

    November 2, 2018 - I was worried about the tart punch when I first opened the bottle, but after 90 minutes of decanting a dinner party of 5 agreed it was their favorite. Paired perfectly with steak and potatoes. Should have bought moe.

    September 23, 2018 - Big bright acidity,needs food. Decanted an hour and drank with braised short ribs. Nice Violet and dusty fruit, good balance for the meal but too tart on it's own. The nose is alluring, like a nice barbaresco with an alluring roughness/aggressiveness. This is nice wine and more complex than a generic barbaresco.

    July 1, 2018 - Transparent tea-colored ruby with slightest hint of browning. Nose initially some funk and closed, surprisingly flat at first, but opens up a lot with time, dark cherries and roses with black tea. Palate bright, light bodied, red cherries with tea flavor (per J), strong iron core with tar, tannic finish. Would recommend decanting at this point, wears its weight (14% abv) well, very good with tomato sauced pasta.
