On the nose, rose pedal, wet bricks and leather. Some orange peel and gravel as well. Super delicate, good acidity, soft velvet tannin. I drank the 16’ langhe the other week and wow is this so much softer and more Burgundian. Super interesting and finessed. Lovely Barolo. Even for a lesser year. — a year ago
On the nose, bricks and clay, oak and leather. Taste is tobacco, oak, soft tannins, silky. Blackberries, allspice, slight clove.
This is a 2016 we're drinking in 2020 and it's delicious. Cellar until 2022 or 2024 and it will be amazing. — 2 years ago
Not impressed. Good but tinny — 7 months ago
So...I had a birthday a couple weeks back.and due to scheduling, my regular bottle finishing team wasn't available until now, so we're finally doing it up in my grand, unique style.
Notes possibly tomorrow, scores honestly tonight.
Nose has crushed bricks, blood orange, ripe cherries, cranberry sauce and wet vines.
Palate has dried cranberry (unsweetened), chalk, orange zest, black currant and dried blackberry.
Seems a little shutdown, revisit 2023+. — 10 months ago
Nose is floral, smoky, it actually has some dark raspberry fruit (unusual for this AVA), warm bricks, iodine, warm sweet raw beef, very complex. Enters the mouth in a linear fashion, not that fat, and then goes on and on. Flavors are nicely ripe: very mineral and savory, but there is some dark fruit; lots of umami sensations. Tremendous length. Good balance. Tannins there but well hidden. Great wine — a year ago
This Barolo shows its garnet color turning to that of bricks. The nose is soft and savory, with an earthy presence to frame the cherry and floral flavors. The palate shows red fruit and licorice with a hefty dose of citrus minerality. Oak spice plays a role, as does the wine’s great tannic structure. The finish is long lasting and centered on the savory side. — a year ago
medium straw color, pale watery rim; lemon, green apple, hints of white flowers; citrus, wet stone; medium body, good acidity, 14.1% ABV; the fruit comes mostly from Riddle Vineyard located on a ridge in Green Valley near the town of Occidental with small amounts from the vineyards represented in their single vineyard program; whole cluster pressed, barrel fermented, no less stirring, no new oak; very good value at $30 — 2 years ago
