    October 23, 2021 - Wine Spectator 40th Anniversary; 10/21/2021-10/23/2021 (Marriott Marquis): Very pretty and precise. The entry level Barolo I think for this producer whom we haven't spent nearly enough time with (but are hoping to visit in a month when we head to Piedmont). This is rose hips and tar and red fruits and very elegantly structured. Young and needs time, but this seems like a great buy.

    October 23, 2021 - NYWE Lovely dark cherry, rose petal, relatively delicate fruit, transparent, and loaded with nice grippy fine grained tannin feel. Pretty. Good value.

    Old family estate began 1896, 100K AC under vine, new facility. Eastern side of Barolo. Large concrete and old wood large vats. Traditional styled.

    October 2, 2021 - Uber tannic, full bodied, floral and tar. Bone dry.

    September 21, 2021 - PnP in a restaurant in Correggio. Too young and should get air, but seems to be a very good mid level Barolo with 1-2 points potential.

    September 18, 2021 - Primary and not so interesting after 3-4 hour decant. Sure there’s the powdery, mouth coating tannins and a refined texture. But the fruit is concealed at this point. After 6 hour decant, it’s better but still represents disappointing qpr. Not sure about all these early reviews. I’d sit 5-10 more years, and even then, not sure it’s worth it.
