    April 9, 2020 - Bright red roses cheery and perfume on the nose. Bright cheery flowery mid pallet, good acid.

    November 25, 2019 - A lovely little wine. Yearns to be similar to bigger Barolos but does well enough. Might give more power after 2 more years but probably near its peak of what it can offer. Enjoy. Cheers.

    August 9, 2019 - Just lovely and a really nice expression of Gramolere with just a touch more heft than the latter version would display. Not quite the magnitude of the 2013 Bricat but still massively satisfying. Tannins are are still quite firm so years to go yet. Lovely now though...if you’re somewhat masochistic.

    January 20, 2019 - There is a tremendous energy to the 2012 that you don’t often find in young Barolo. Great harmony among the floral, red fruit, leather, and cedar notes. This drank well with a one hour decant.
