    July 10, 2020 - From a WTSO magnum purchased a few years ago. Good juice, hitting it’s stride with life ahead as it drops fruit and gains aromatics. Pure Barolo.

    January 19, 2019 - Classic Barolo. Complex. Still has legs. Wish I had more.

    September 16, 2018 - I had my first one of these 8 years ago and it was very good, but time has helped this develop into a classic Barolo. The nose was apparent as soon as it was opened, Some cedar, tar and cherries. On the palate so many flavors come through, sour cherries, tobacco, currant. The finish is strong with tannins that are still quite noticeable, though not as harsh. Great mouthfeel that last 30+ seconds. This was a pleasant surprise and still has time to develop

    March 19, 2017 - Wonderful nose full of tertiary notes. Tar, cedar, liquorice and some black current. Perfectly integrated tannins and good acidity. Drink now!
