Community Tasting Notes (9) Avg Score: 90.8 points

  • Poured into decanter and started drinking. Just a little sediment. On the nose plenty of tar, toasted oak and dark fruit, initially fairly round and rich dark cherries but with more air the fruit profile become much more compact, incredibly concentrated but not overripe, almost like black currant jam, savory but not oxidative, medium tannins. Medium length.
    Not a classic Barolo by any means but an interesting and well made wine of high quality. At this point in time I find it more interesting and impressive than truly enjoyable but a bit more time in bottle could bring things into balance. Will try my next bottle in 1-2 years. 93+

  • 2007 Barolo Zoom tasting. Drank in Conterno Sensory.
    Appearance is clear, deep intensity, ruby colour with very thin garnet rim. Legs.
    Nose is clean, medium+ intensity, with aromas of mushroom earth, charred woody spice, integrated chocolate mocha toast oak, black cherries, dark red cherries. Developing.
    On the palate, dry, high acidity, medium+ alcohol, fine high tannins, full body. Medium+ flavour intensity, with flavours of swet black tea leaves, tangy orange peel, black cherries, dark red cherries, charred woody spice, bitter coffeebean mocha toast, mushroom earth background. Long bitter coffeebean finish.
    Very good quality. Modernist style. Complex. In a good place already. Not sure if the oak will ever fully integrate seamlessly.

  • Garnet color with some orange at the rim. Nose has some oak, tar, roses and just a touch of dark fruit. Acidic on the front end, with muted dark cherry, leather and tobacco. Very tannic with a long finish. Retry in 2027 when it is 20 years old.

  • Not my style. Oak, oak and more oak. Mocha, and an acetone note. Fat rich black fruit. Honestly I would not have even pegged this for Nebbiolo if this was served blind. The only reason this is not scored lower is that it tasted fine if you judge it as a New-Worldish red wine. As a cru Barolo - and for typicity - it is an utter fail.

  • Very nice Barolo, in a great spot right now! Leather, earth, dark cherries, medium body, elegant, soft tannins, cedar, soft oak, note of dark chocolate, long finish!
