    November 20, 2022 - Decant 5 hrs - zero sediment - zero cork seepage. Though approachable (and enjoyable) after 1 hr there is notable improvement into 7th hour. Dramatic change in color to deeper garnet, beautiful clarity. Rose on nose strawberry on palate. Opened alongside a 2016 Renato Ratti Marcenasco. Both were just fantastic with the Pasta Puttanesca. We felt the Ratti was in better shape for drinking now, but just barely. Vietti had better structure for aging perhaps. Both singing now and will improve over many yrs

    October 30, 2022 - A lovely if not particularly thrilling textbook Barolo. Probably best after a couple more years.

    September 23, 2022 - Tastes next to the 2016 Felsina Rancia.

    Cherry, rose petals, very slight earthiness. Charming aromas, though not fully expressive.

    Medium bodied. Fairly “effortless” and light, though with considerable tannins. More ready than the Felsina, but still needs a few more years.

    August 25, 2022 - Cherry, dried rose petals
    Very tannic, but was still approchable.
    91-92 on its potential
