    December 21, 2018 - The nose showed sweetly spiced cherries along with notes of cedar, dried roses, animal musk, stone dust and old leather. On the palate, I found soft textures with zesty red fruits pushed forward by brisk acidity with a bitter herbal twang and saline minerality. It's fruit seemed to go from sweet to sour as the ‘03 Bartolo traveled across the senses, adding an earthy note of sous bois and taking on more of a feminine weight. The finish was medium in length, resonating on minerality with sweet red fruits, a bitter acid twang, and lingering notes of savory herbs.

    It’s a wine that shows the heat of the vintage, being a bit advanced and dried out, yet still quite enjoyable today and gains inner sweetness with time in the glass.

    November 10, 2018 - Developed Nebbiolo aromas. Also developed on the palate, with dried ripe fruit. Lacks some elegance and structure, maybe.

    September 5, 2018 - 2nd bottle in the last month. Ripe vintage is evident. Only 14% alcohol although alcohol permeated the nose.
    Smooth rich lovely wine. Not much of a finish but great with food or nothing at all. Violets mushrooms some black pepper

    July 4, 2018 - Not the best year for Bartolo but still really really good
    Opens with classic Barolo nose plus lots of alcohol
    After 2 hrs decant, alcohol has burned off leaving powerful yet smooth tannins wrapped in dark fruits
    Take small sips and savor the refinement.
    One of those wines you can’t drink quick
    Love it

    January 23, 2017 - similar to last bottle though the wine seemed further along the maturity curve than i would have guessed...
