    August 27, 2020 - Plums and blueberries predominant with a hint of orange peel and some strawberry on the nose. Fine grained tannins, mild liquorice, and a long but good wet moss and granite finish. Very nice.

    March 2, 2019 - Light tobacco tinged garnet color.
    The acids were vibrant and the tannins a little rough making this would be a great wine to pair with a cheese rich Italian dish.
    The aromatics were light with hints of rose petal and brown sugar. There were also a bit of grilled meat and fragrant chai spice. After it sat in the glass without swirling, there were prominent oyster shell aromas.
    The finish is short with a bit of lingering bitterness.
    This bottle was much more pleasant on the nose than it was in the mouth, again showing that this is a wine designed to pair with richer foods.

    Drink or Hold.

    May 20, 2018 - 2nd LI Blind BYO (Primi Italian Steakhouse Islip): Much preferred to the 04 Scavino, this was more acidic, better balanced and clearly Barolo. Coming together nicely.

    May 31, 2017 - Somewhere along the way, I learned from people who are much more experienced with Barolo to skip the decanter and enjoy the ride; taking advantage of the subtle shifts Nebbiolo will make with every half-hour or so of air. With that, I popped and poured. Garnet color with what appears to be some slight bricking on the edges. Aromas of dark fruit, black tea, tar and leather were most obvious tonight. On the palate: dark cherries, tea, and minerals were predominant. Tannins are still very much in play. Acid is what I expect from a well made Barolo and so this is ideal for food but also interesting enough for contemplation. A charming finish. Holly and I didn't have an opportunity to finish the bottle the first night so we pushed the cork back in the neck and revisited the following evening. On Day 2, we found that this bottle had held up well showing some modest evolution but I wouldn't call it a drastic transformation either. Definitely in a drinking window that I expect to last for some time. Drink now with patience or Hold.

    March 8, 2017 - Transparent deep and dusky garnet, with classic lightening through pink and orange to transparent at the edges.

    Opened for 1 hour. First sip gives a blast of tart cherry and heat. Medium body, with Fine grained but prominent tannins that coat the tongue. First impressions are very fresh and youthful.
