  • tasted in piedmont "La Trattoria della Posta"
    This was singing and mind blowing. This is what I would describe as a nearly perfect traditional barolo. mind

    lots of red fruits, already accessible.
    this wine has an overwhelmingly depth and sniper-precision that you can lose yourself in the glass. compared to the big bordeaux this has less "horizontal" layers (different aromas) but has a LOT more "vertical" complexity (depth). philosophical wine. cant stop sniff and drink it and enjoy the endless aftermusic. the fist in a velvety glove that punches you in the face. driven by a high acidity. a bit of spice. but over all very, very rustical and pure wine. reduced to the minimum, but the minimum is more than enough. no make-up, no wood, no bullshit. this is what winemaking is all about.

    Too bad that the market is going crazy about these wines (understandably). But still worth every penny.

  • - no decanting, openend and poored for 45minutes in the glass @Restaurante della Posta in Piedmont.
    - Nose: Boom, fresh and soaring lightness and honest red fruit, nothing overripe and sweet but fully present with red berries, rhubarb, red plums. In ambush come balsamic herbs, crushed stones, blood oranges and iodine. Is a bit more herbaceous than Roagna's Baroli.
    - Mouth: Has everything you like, high acidity integrated and already quite silky tannins (medium +). Incredible depth and tension. This is big and so far probably the best Barolo I have drunk!
    - 96-97P

  • You can absolutely see the class in this wine, but this is just infanticide right now. Bury it for a decade and it will be so much better.

  • Beautiful vibrant red color. Ultimate aromas that make you dream of Julia Robert's beautiful smile together with the world's most refined scents of delicious concentrated cherries, roses, tar and truffle. Nice full-bodied wine with this wonderful clean mouthfeel that makes the tears shine throuh. Beautiful fruit of wonderful cherries, raspberries, balsamic vinegar, tar and truffle. Both acidity and tannin structure are brilliantly balancing in this wine that can withstand decades in the cellar. Sublime wine. 97 points.
