Community Tasting Notes 26

  • vinus_operandi Does not like this wine: 89 points

    October 26, 2021 - a very modern style barolo that opens with very dark fruit in the glass and shows little age after 16 years. the oak overwhelms the nose and the palate hiding the dark cherry and blackberry and the other aromatics and flavors that you typically get from nebbiolo. the wine seems over-extracted to me as well but one can't be certain due to the oak. there is also a spiciness on the palate which once again can be attributed to the oak. when a producer uses this much new oak, he destroys what the vineyard has given to him......a shame all around.

    June 17, 2020 - Backbone is a little too stark @ moment. Moslty Dark&graphite notes. Some fruit notes at times. Likely to improve with more age. Much better with Italian food than without!

    January 7, 2018 - Coravin glass. Dark garnet with a thin translucent rim. Slightly oxidative on the aromatic nose, tar, liquorice, wood spices, medium + tannins, good length. Not a bad wine but this is too far on the tar/liquorice side for me to really enjoy. 90 - rate higher if you like the style.

    July 4, 2016 - Fresh red fruit and roses. Subtle tar. A bit stern.
