    August 7, 2021 - 1st bottle of 3. Decanted off extremely heavy sediment. Deep tawny color - very advanced appearance. Dull nose of menthol and balsamico mingled with light roses. Very subdued dark fruit notes. Not oxidized but fading. Palate is intense and dominated by powerful balsamic notes offset by slight dark fruit flavors. This bottle is over the hill. It was well stored since release so hopefully it's an aberration. Very disappointing bottle from one of my favorite producers.

    March 10, 2021 - Barolo Lunch at SanShuGong. Drank in Grassl Cru. Tasted semi-blind.
    Appearance is clear, medium intensity, ruby colour. Legs.
    Nose is clean, medium+ intensity, with an initial blast of vanilla oak that blows off/integrates, revealing aromas of sweet spices, dark plums, black cherries, tobacco. Developed.
    On the palate, dry, medium+ acidity, high alcohol (14.5%), grippy high tannins, full body. Medium+ flavour intensity, with flavours of black cherries, blackberries, dark plums, tobacco, dark leather, sweet spices. Long finish.
    Very good quality. Modern styled, but still enjoyable. Somehow feels fresher than the last time I had this bottle in 2017.
    From the San Rocco cru in the commune of Serralunga d'Alba.

    November 28, 2020 - Bouquet of medicinal notes, kirsch, grilled peppers, vanilla, undergrowth masking more fruity, floral tones. Lush, silky palate, with some toffee and coffee elements, with quite some acidity and some tannins, leaving a spicy, sweet, tannic finish.

    October 7, 2020 - This is in a beautiful place, fully resolved and near peak. Plain delicious, even right after opening. No sediment.

    September 9, 2020 - Gareth's Post-lockdown Piedmont (Noize): Double-decanted about two hours before it was drunk. Surprised at how modern this was - plush, with notes of spice, wood and coffee, it reminded me of a Pappy van Winkle Bourbon. That's not altogether a bad thing, given Pappy is tasty stuff, but the wine was too much like a Super Tuscan or Right Bank BDX for me to love it. Maybe this was exacerbated by drinking it alongside a Nebbiolo made in a completely different style.
