  • Almost a year since my last note, and this bottle is consistent with the last one - a fully mature Barolo that is drinking well, but doesn’t possess much in the way of future upside. More red fruits than black, with decent acidity. If you have this in the cellar and haven’t revisited it lately, I would recommend checking out a bottle soon.

  • Agree with Bob H's note - this isn't getting any better, so drink up. A little porty on the nose initially, but that abated. Richer mouthfeel as tannins receding a bit, dark red fruits, some tar, a little cinnamon. Nice depth of flavor, but drinks a little heavy and a bit out of balance. Still quite nice and a great value for what I paid.

  • Very nice - IMO, fully mature at this point, so I would call this "drink or hold", as I don't see the likelihood of additional upside, but I also don't envision this falling off a cliff either.

    Good acidity, really spreads out on the palate - just a lot to like here.

  • Lovely - nicely focused on the palate, with sweet & sour cherry fruit, good acidity and persistence. This has time in front of it as well.

  • Purchased on release. Decanted two hours and consumed over the next three. This is a really nice wine. It had a balsamic and soy component that complemented the red fruits nicely. A long finish with solid acidity resulted in a wine that went well with fresh pasta with black truffles and poached eggs. This wine will continue to evolve but I'm not sure it will really improve, only change. Great now.
