    June 6, 2020 - Great bottle. Dense, fine tannins, with deep dark cherry fruit, and an absolutely terrific feel in the mouth. Super aromatics, with just a bit of hardness in the finish. But overall an immensely enjoyable wine probably at peak, and with years of life ahead.

    September 1, 2018 - High throttle style with rich, dense fruit and some oak.
    A little hot with alcohol on the palate throws off the balance.

    Definitely representative of the new-wave Barolo wines which were in full swing by the mid-late 90s. Not agreeable to my own tastes, but I can see this appealing to some.

    February 11, 2017 - Really pretty high toned nose with flowers, red licorice, dried roses, dried strawberries. Palate has a lot of structure still and seems like it's holding a lot back so I gave this plenty of air over 2 days but it never really unfurled.

    November 11, 2016 - As with my last tasting , the nose is still highly complex- aromas of rose, licorice, mint, cola, herbs, spice and cigar box from the oak. Same flavors along with a sweetish and mild red currant. Tannin has abated more. Stile a powerful and intensely fruited wine. Has time left for appreciation.

    November 5, 2016 - Started out fruit forward, blackberries. Tannins are fine but quite present. The acid level is bright but not inappropriate. The nose is still tight and unevolved.
