    January 23, 2021 - Clearly not past. Deep ruby colored full bodied wine with fruit still intact. Glad I have another bottle.

    September 22, 2020 - Stood up for > 1 month and decanted. Light-medium ruby with age-appropriate bricking; medium aromatics with red cherry, forest floor mulch; palate is light bodied, high but plush tannins, medium-plus acidity, balanced mature red fruit; medium length finish. Not quite as striking as my last bottle nearly 5 years ago, but a perfectly nice mature example of Barolo with character of Monforte (slightly burlier and textured). 91
    With an hour of air: a bit of roses on the nose and palate comes out more. A lovely Barolo, though still not a show stopper. 91-92
    Day 2: Tannins a bit more prominent, or maybe the fruit is a bit more reticent.

    May 21, 2019 - Ugh... bricking and a bit brown around the edge. Not the beautiful Barolo I’ve had before from Seghesio. Almost spoiled or just got cooked. Only a few (out of hundreds) have left me with a bad vibe but this was one of them!

    November 18, 2018 - Slightly floral with lots of sediment, but decanted very quickly to produce a wonderfully 20 year aged Barolo that was still luscious, slightly fruity. Dark blackberry and simply enjoyable.

    September 14, 2018 - All hail, Nebbiolo!! This 20 year vintage aged was a bit thin and translucent upon opening but with about 30 minutes of air, it suddenly became alive. Dark and luscious it was truly built to last the ages. Am certain that another 20 years would do this vintage just fine.
