As the wine sits in the glass the aromas continue to open transitioning into notes of Kiwi fruit, Satsuma tangerines & hints of Asian Pear. Loved — 2 days ago
I’m not overly enthused by this houses Barolo…
This is a gem.
Juicy red fruit. Well balanced. Lingering finish. Bigger than what it should be. — 5 days ago
Really enjoyed this. Very polished and shiny, which Giacosa is sometimes criticized for but it was simply a killer wine. Wore its 15% abv extremely well. Didn’t read hot with lamb ragu. Really pretty red fruits, soft tannins, approachable acidity. A delicious wine at Barbalu. — 10 days ago
Served blind. I never would have guessed!
Amazingly pure bramble black cherry essence - still youthful after 21y, enticing, juicy, with a whiff of wood polish and a pinch of black pepper.
Smooth on the palate, seamless, so juicy. Polished super fine tannins, zippy cherry acidity and a savoury core of black cherry and herbs. Uplifting fresh finish, even if falling a bit short in length.
A delicious wine! — 14 days ago
Tangy up front then nice and velvety. Succulent and a little gamey, great with red sauce. — 8 days ago
