    September 21, 2019 - Just had a glass of the '05, and this is clearly the better bottle (I guess not overly surprising given the vintages). More substantive on the palate, although the house style still tends to produce understated wines.

    The nose here is more focused, with menthol, balsamico and ripe cherry fruit. Very nice, and a wine that should have no troubles at all evolving for another 10-15 years.

    April 25, 2019 - An '04 to celebrate Cellartracker's 15th Anniversary! Wine collecting wouldn't be the same without it. This particular '04 Barolo still has lots of life left ahead of it. Representative of the region and type; long finish. Really noticeable acidity. It's not amazing but it is good. Certainly worth the $28 I paid for in back in 2012.

    February 1, 2019 - A beauty. Lively, fresh and unoaked fruit, lots of roses, sweet cherry. Residual tannins add extra complexity to the fruit, not cover it up. Fully blossomed. What a delicious barolo should be all about.

    January 20, 2019 - A cold & windy day here in the Delaware Valley - perfect time for some fresh bread with olive oil, washed down with a glass of Barolo ;^)

    Mostly red fruit on the nose, with a note of tar as well.

    Delicious! Still some unresolved tannin here in what is a fairly youthful wine, but it goes down easy, with good acidity for lift and decent length on the finish. Very good.

    July 27, 2018 - Light to start, building depth with some air. An aged tinge of light camphor, subtle dark underlying fruit. Nicely balanced
