    July 8, 2020 - All Barolo. All soy, fungi and distant red fruit. A delight. Drink now.

  • Nathan NZ Does not like this wine: 79 points

    May 8, 2020 - If this was ever good, it isn’t now, medicinal and imbalanced.

    April 14, 2020 - clearly can´t hide its age, actually looks way older than it is. meaty with soft tannins, still decently long, even some acidity. Blackberry with a good grip. I directly purchased the bottle at the winery, so it has been stored perfectly.

    December 14, 2019 - On its very last legs...

    Fading brick red and very orange at rim. Quite earthy at first, but lacked fruit. Supple on the palate without the complexity or power you'd hope for.

  • Nyccablover Does not like this wine:

    November 23, 2019 - Thanksgiving week in Piemonte; 11/22/2019-11/30/2019 (Milan, Barolo, Alba, Barbaresco): At the Borgogno tasting room from coravin pour. I did not care for this at all - it had the quality of stewed fruit, and just tasted medicinal and nasty. If this is indicative of the hot vintage - will be sure to avoid in future.
