    January 3, 2020 - Early days but very happy I got to taste the '13 when it's only a baby. Lovely nose of dark fruit between red and purple; deep mature cherries with plenty of freshness left in them. Tar, dried roses and very distinctive paint box aromas. Rosehip and worn leather. Overall it's pretty dark for such a young Barolo, both on the nose and in appearance. Dark tea and some dried salvia and liquorice. Was served this blind and to be honest I was thinking of a slightly developed, superb Sangiovese when I was nervously trying to "bring in the suspects" in my mind. In any case the nose is sublime.
    The palate is surprisingly approachable with amazing tannins, really really high quality. During the evening I kept coming back to the tannins and for me that's what separates this '13 from many other high level Barolos. Structure wise the acidity is youthful but not much above medium imo. The dark fruit profile continues where the nose left off but the palate is more about secondary notes such as tar, roses, leather and paint box. Long aftertaste, very elegant. Already in balance.
    No surprises and unnecessary to recommend, everyone knows this is among the very best Barolo in any vintage.

    November 23, 2019 - Rubino limpido, naso leggera riduzione poi si apre su note frutta e fiori secchi, cuoio, liquirizia, terra. Bocca seducente, legg alcol, finale lungo con una buona freschezza.

    November 23, 2019 - Uncorked overnight prior to serving into Zalto Burgundy glass (“No” day): Pale bright purplish ruby. Slightly deeper than the other two tasted alongside.

    Even darker red and purplish fruits than the other two. Still primary aromas. Very typical tar and roses. More broadly scaled and ambitious too.

    Similar follow through on the palate. Structured but with time in glass opening up slightly. Clean and persistent finish.

    93 points at this point.

    October 12, 2019 - This wine is in a really good place now. Needs a couple of hours of air AND food to really shine. Nose is incredibly perfumed of crushed red berries, roses, black tea, spices, crushed chalky stones and some light balsamic tones. Body gives a light impression at first but much like a chambolle can be, there is a massive texture to this wine with fine grained tannins that needs to work with food to really become an experience out of this earth. This wine just keeps growing over the course of the meal. In my all-time-top-ten for sure. bless you maria theresa.
