    May 17, 2020 - Pale Garnet. Red fruit, rose and leather. Very long finish. As the wine opened up it became very aromatic and I recommend decanting. Well balanced and elegant.

    November 10, 2019 - Decanted for about an hour before a dinner of guinea hen with porcini on polenta. Redolent of tar and very subtle violets with soft tannins and minimal phenolics. Very well balanced and further improved with more air. No rush on this one, but extremely approachable right now.

    October 14, 2019 - Really dry and reticent on opening, the tannins still present but they've thinned, and I hope that some fruit will emerge. Air softens the palate, but it's not really as giving as I had hoped, with some cherry and potpourri notes, but I was hoping that 15 years past the vintage, this would be in the drinking well zone. I'm wondering whether I waited too long - - has the fruit dried our already? - - or have I not waited long enough? The second night, this changed in the oddest way. The tone of the palate changed from red to black, and the tannins were gritty, the palate showing coffee grounds in taste and texture. A surprising showing, and I hope other bottles in my cellar show much better.

    September 3, 2019 - Not sure what to think. There is something there in the traditional Barolo sense but then it disappears. Lots of toffee/caramel on the nose and flavour. Maybe the wine is in a bit of a dumbphase … but I doubt it.
    As it opens up, the caramel flavours disappear. The typical Barolo flavours start to come through. Will try on day 2.
    Much better on day 2. Toffee/caramel is gone. More tar, dark fruit, earthiness.

    March 17, 2019 - Grande puissance, voir trop.
    Arômes prononcés de réglisse, toffie.
    Longue bouche, mais finale assez agressive, voir rapeux.
    Manque de la délicatesse du barolo typique.
