    February 25, 2017 - DGs Birthday: Decanted for 24 hours. This has delicate perfume, wooden spices, blackberry, cherry, roses - the nose is elusive, but thrillingly detailed when you concentrate. The palate is another level compared to anything else tasted tonight, there is a sense of effortless power, there is immense structure but the layers of flavour and precision of the fruit and acidity are breathtaking. Truly feels like this will develop into a legendary wine.

    September 20, 2016 - Barolo Riserva Monfortino vertical 1995-2006: The strongest wine of the evening. It possessed the aromatics of the cooler vintages which intermix eucalyptus notes together with the typical Nebbiolo aromas of roses, tobacco, earth. At the same time it has a very tightly knit palate that provides excellent mouth feel with strong but good quality tannins. A very convincing Barolo; one can see why Galloni gives it a three digit score. 98+
