    March 12, 2022 - Broad bricking on the rim. Still some dark red fruits on the nose along with earth, mushroom. old leather. More of same on the palate. Any rose petals have been dissolved by the tannin and acids. Finish was medium length and dry.

    February 16, 2022 - Medium red with brown edges. The oak is still at the front, cherry, tar and potting soil. Dry earthy cherry flavours and a nice dry woody finish.

    June 8, 2016 - Not a bad wine, but didn't leave much of an impression on me...

    April 14, 2012 - Although stored very well since its release, I was somewhat surprised at how good this was for a 23 year old bottle. A big, muscular, mouth-filing barolo with notes of chocolate and tar and leather. Though fully mature, this bottle still has enough fruit to stand up to the rich, mature tannins and has a few years life left.
