    February 22, 2020 - Red and black fruit with cool menthol on the nose - very nice.

    You can still feel some tannin here on the palate, but this is fairly expansive at this point, with good persistence. I like it quite a bit tonight, but the unresolved tannin still seems to indicate that this wine has time in front of it.

    August 28, 2019 - Gorgeous nose that soars from the glass with black & red fruits and menthol.

    Seamless on the palate, with good acidity & persistence. Pretty tasty, medium-bodied, and just lacking a little more complexity to push it into the "very good" category. That said, I'm enjoying this today, and glad that I still have a few bottles left.

    June 13, 2019 - Drinking very well right now - translucent ruby in the glass, with red fruits and a dash o' funk on the nose.

    Seamless, with good acidity, and a little tannic nip on the finish. Plenty of time in front of it as well.

    September 18, 2017 - A darker translucent ruby in the glass, with a nice nose with a pronounced note of tar.

    Light- to medium-bodied for Barolo, nice persistence on the finish, and decent acidity. I had a bottle of the Giachini the other night, and if I recall that correctly, I think I slightly prefer that wine, but this is also drinking well today.

    January 25, 2014 - Really enjoyed this Barolo. After 4 hour decant: lovely and sweet red fruit, sweet baking spices, licorice on palate with tannins that didn't overwhelm. Finished bottle 2 days later and bottle was still fantastic, sweetness was more subdued but wine was more balanced.
