August 8, 2019 - Very good but this was advanced and I felt there was heat damage on the wine.
July 17, 2019 - Really outstanding beauty
June 2, 2019 - Sweet licorice and rose petals on the nose with a little sour cherry. Sweet soy sauce, leather and whiskey notes on the palate. Gripping tannins. Love this right here. Decanted for 2+ hours.
December 19, 2018 - Dinner with Friends (Osteria Langhe): Decanted ~10 hours the poured back into the bottle and consumed ~2 hours later. This is so packed with intensity and still quite young. Huge, effervescent nose of muscular black cherry with fresh florals and new leather. The palate is round, rich and dense. Shows classic Nebbiolo flavors and purity, in a larger scale package that needs another decade to settle in. Fun to check in.
December 8, 2018 - Within the 2 hour decant it started showing its colors. Rich and floral bouquet. Beautiful violet, rose petals, and sweet spice notes.
December 1, 2018 - Superbe!
Ouvert 3 heures avant consommation de 3 heures. Jolie couleur carmin moyennement brillant avec nuances orangées sur les bords.
Le nez est magnifique avec ses arômes de cerises à l’eau de vie, de grenadine, de ronces, de roses et finalement de girofle.
Et la bouche est incroyable avec un volume impressionnant et une multitude de saveurs différentes.
Très bonne longueur.
Sur la base de cette bouteille, au début de son plateau de dégustation avec de belles années à venir. Le vin s’est amélioré tout au long de la soirée et les 2 derniers verres étaient les meilleurs!
October 28, 2018 - outstanding, powerful, rich flavor
October 21, 2018 - I am happy to report that this wine has entered its peak drinking condition. It was the essence of traditionally made Nebbiolo with its classic bouquet and feminine elegance front and center with each sip. And oh, what a marvelous lengthy and velvety finish. I'm glad I bought a bunch of these a while back and have more in the cellar.
October 6, 2018 - Simply beautiful and in an amazing place now. Drank over 2 hours and it could have used a lot more time up front.
September 12, 2018 - We opened this at a restaurant, let it breathe probably 1 hour and drank over the following 2... It must need more time because it never really reached the transcendence of previous high caliber 01's I've had recently.
