    February 9, 2019 - PNP. Dark red fruits, dusty leather and tobacco on the nose and palate. Medium tannins and a clean finish. Fruit help up well 1 1/2 hours after opening as well las the nose. Well integrated and in nice balance at 20 years..in a good place.

    March 7, 2018 - The 1997 Cordero di Montezemolo Barolo Bricco Gattera I originally chose for tonight was corked, so I had to improvise and grabbed this bottle of 1998 Enzo Boglietti Barolo Fossati. The cork was almost completely soaked, but came out of the bottle intact. We decanted the wine for two hours and followed its development over a period of another three.

    The wine offered rose petals, red fruit, ethereal notes, chlorine and black tea leave aromas on the nose. On the palate, the wine showed ripe, sweet red fruit flavours, spices, a hint of tobacco, a black tea component and a touch of marzipan, with medium-plus acidity, youthful if reasonably well integrated tannin, and good length. This medium-bodied wine Barolo was of good quality and seemed youthful, it just lacked true character and was uninspiring in that sense. Would not buy again.

    May 16, 2011 - Full bodied with notes of cherry & red berries, new leather & oak. The alcohol is somewhat unresolved and prominent. The fruit is lean and a slightly austere mid palate with a lack of complexity, but a good length to the finish. Disappointing.

    October 20, 2007 - Fruity aromas with tobacco, anis / licorice and smooth flavours. Enjoyable wine and easy drinking now.
