    July 27, 2020 - with bistecca florentina

    May 12, 2020 - It was a wine with a pale and slightly colored brick red almost Garnet. On the nose it was of pronounced intensity, with primary aromas of ripe plum, cherry, cinnamon and licorice and rose. For the tertiary aromas these where of a musky and hint of barnyard aromatic.
    On the palate the wine was of a dry sweetness and medium acidity whichwas stimulating in the mouth. The tannins where well integrated and of a robust nature. The alcohol was medium and well integrated as expected of the wine. The primary aromas of plum, cherry, cinnamon and licorice and rose and the tertiary aromas of musk where reflected.
    This wine was paired with a a rich meaty dish which worked well... the decanting time was 1 hour...

    June 9, 2019 - First bottle, tasted 06/09/19. Decanted for an hour and a half, but no pulse or enjoyment in this one. Black tea notes.
    For a Nebbiolo from a well-regarded Barolo producer (e.g., their delicious Liste Barolo) and from a very good vintage, this is notably disappointing and unimpressive. 83 points

    Second bottle purchased from same store on same day as first bottle, tasted 04/28/20. 87 points. Thinner body, but enjoyable with food. First bottle may have been defective.

    October 12, 2018 - Light red, with hint of brick at edge. Sour cherry, wood nose. Good sweet fruit, texturally rich. Refreshing.

    October 7, 2017 - A lovely savoury wine, fully expressive of the variety. There are cedar and earth notes along with dried flowers and red berries. It is generous with good structure.
