Community Tasting Notes (2) Avg Score: 90.5 points

  • This was a bottle I bought on a recent trip to Italy. In the glass this showed a light red tea-like colour with golden rim. The bouquet was herbacious showing hints of menthol, liquorice, coughsyrup. Initial attack was a bit unbalanced with drying tannins but this softened after a few hours. I enjoyed it more as the evening went on and the fruit started to show a little more.

  • This was a test bottle to see if I wanted to purchase more for the cellar, and it did not disappoint. Tasted after a 4 hour decant and over the course of 4 hours. Dense and rich, with spice and floral notes. The tannins were definitely tough, as expected, but this classicly styled Barolo should age nicely over the next 10 years.
