    April 24, 2021 - Agree with the past few tasting notes that this is a classically styled Barolo that is at the beginning of it's long peak plateau. Perfect balance of fruit and earth.

    I decanted off the sediment and it tasted/smelled so good that I immediately recorked. In hind sight, I would have just left the cork off as the wine continued to improve throughout the evening.

    April 4, 2021 - Decanted for 1.5 hrs. Consistent notes from my last bottle. Very smooth with rose, tar, truffles, mild tannins. A delightful wine at its peak.

    January 18, 2021 - 1.5 hour decant. Medium sediment. Classic tar earth and roses nose leaning towards the earthy side. Still some fresh red fruit as well on the nose. Dry palate with some leather and darker fruit with silky med+ richness, earth and long tart dry finish that is wonderfully intense. Mouth puckering tannins still evident but good with food (fried chicken and mixed beans). Long tingling finish.

    Based on the structure this wine could go on for ages but now it is open powerful and a great mix of secondary character and youthful intensity. The 2004s are coming into their own and they are stunning.

    I really like the Castiglione Falletto mix of structure and evocative aromatics in evidence here.
