    April 4, 2019 - Very nice! Drinking very nicely with lots of Nebbiolo character. Nice aftertaste. Should have decanted to give it more time to open, but we were in a restaurant.

    March 27, 2019 - If you like oak in your Nebbiolo then this is the wine for you.
    If you're an old school Barolo lover - skip it.
    This wine was black to brown opaque.
    Could not tease out roses.
    Had sitting upright for two months. Did not need my used Durand.
    Toward the end of the decant smoke did not appear, but thin chunks of sediment then pebbles of sediment. Had to leave almost 2 glasses in the bottle.
    It had dark musty nose of oak with mushrooms. No sharpness.
    Had decanted at 2pm. By 4:30 it had nose of plums, leather, muddy stones,crushed vines, touch of coco, and dust.
    By 5:30 tar showed up.
    First taste revealed a huge wine. Long finish, lots of tar, panoply of spices, licorice, tobacco and leather.
    Later it seemed primal, oaky with lots of new oak and vanilla tannins.
    Chocolate started to show.

    The oak was way too much.
    I still liked it. But will sell my remaining bottles at auction.
    It's a shame to ruin good Barolo like this.

    If Barolo were a God, sitting on high among the greats of Earth's Heaven, he would have had to have his angered, destructive hand stayed for free will's sake.

    December 21, 2018 - Needed about 4hr decant to really open up well. Excellent wine

    December 2, 2018 - 3-hour decent recommended. Deep inner sweetness but limited on top, almost constrained. Good texture and the old acerbic notes are gone. I’m not sure this will improve; not enough juice. Drink now - 2022.

    June 9, 2018 - Bereits recht fortgeschritten im Alterungsprozess, anfangs schöne Nase, welche mit der Zeit verlor.
