    February 4, 2017 - Post Festa Dinner at Hearth

    Soy and tertiary. Autumnal, redder fruited, with decaying leaves, dried porcini, and a fading gracefulness. My necro palate has a soft spot for this phase of life, but this is hanging on by its fingernails. 86

    February 5, 2016 - Gala Dinner at Antonio Galloni's La Festa del Barolo (Four Seasons Restaurant, NYC): [A pour from a bottle brought by Daniel M.] Wow! I think the best bottle I have ever had of this wine. Stunningly complex in the nose and mouth. Has that great sweetness and purity of fruit that I've had in the best bottles of 1958 Cantina Mascarello Barolo. Still has some tannin on the super long finish.

    August 30, 2013 - Very mature, overly mature red fruit aromas with charming earthy spice. Lots of earth throughout, this is a bottle more interesting than tasty.

    August 23, 2011 - Burgundy and Barolo at Heidi's: Double decanted about four hours before serving. The cork came out largely intact, immediately producing shocking aromas of VA/nail polish. There was close to an inch of sludge on the bottom of the bottle. Once the wine was safely back in the rinsed bottle I corked it and sucked the air out to minimize oxygen exposure. When poured at the restaurant it had a shocking light orange color, more reminiscent of rose than Barolo. The nose still showed some prominent VA/nail polish but also developed some beautiful aromas of grand mariner and brown sugar. This was much better on the palate. Obviously lacking some of the stuffing that had precipitated out, but what was left had a special smooth and silky texture. Great old-wine flavors of orange rind and tar. Long, enjoyable finish. While not in the same league as the otherworldly '58 Monfortino this proved to be most enjoyable and memorable.

    April 8, 2008 - While light in color, very aromatic with full flavor. Well aged but not over the hill
