That’s the stuff. Much more complex than the normal Barolo. Just a stunning nose. So much mineral, cherry flower and unreal nuances. Spice, iodine, just penetrating and so refined. Deep cherry fruit with a citrus twang. Really fine. Wow the cherry fruit aromas are absolutely knee bucklers. Just so fine, deep and precise. Wow the florals now kicking in. This is a 9.6 nose. Maybe higher. Wow that is a sexy beast. This needs 45 minutes as it is very tight right now. Stunning depth and purity but big tannins and acid and an incredible core of fruit. This is an obvious 9.5. off the bat but this, like the 16, needs mega air. Nose gets so complex and expansive as it airs. Huge fruit. But nuanced and complex. An airy sense of minerality. Almost like an ocean breeze. Okay nose is a 9.6 now. Just sick.
Palate becoming more concentrated. Fruit getting sweeter and sappier. But tannins still fierce and leading the way. Ahh now the elegance picks up and it gets more spherical and sweet. Wonderful. — 17 days ago
Con Paella e poi frittura è accompagnamento ideale!

Light bodied. Nose of raspberries, a bit floral. Dry, acidic, tannic, chalky and mineral. My favourite light bodied wine by far, Etna Rosso! — a year ago
Debut vintage of this and it slays. Nose is ripe as 15 can be but it is infinitely complex. Tar, roses, deep cherry fruit. Glorious spice and so nuanced. Just keeps opening. After 5 minutes it’s changed 8 times. Wow. This is a dream. As supple as the most elite Burgundy and so sweet! Wow. This is as Chambolle as it gets. Perfect balance and stunning purity and depth. Velvet and silk of the highest level. This is the best 15 Barolo I’ve ever had. It’s not close. Wow. Sweet, sensual and silky palate that has the spherical effect in spades. Nose is impossible complex. Unreal concentration and freshness. This is mindbending. Sadly only 36 bottles. Start begging!
This has the balance that only super .0001% elite wines have. This is stunning. — 17 days ago
Proof that roero arneis does keep. No reason to fast finish in 2 years. Nice fruits in the nose: Peach and apricot. Some ripening butter tones. All is also on the pallet, in combinatie with some citrusfruits and lots of nice hazelnut bitters. All the more reason to store them at the back of the cellar. — 9 months ago
Hyvä! ! Hapokas, voimakkaat tanniinit ja aromikkaan keskitäyteläinen. Chiantimainen tuoksu, pitkä jälkivaikutelma. — a year ago

70% Carricante 30% Catarratto from Sicily and yes I needed Jancis Robinson et al. to tell me what those grapes are. Dry with nice aromatics (curry, cumin, dried red pepper) and minerality. If you had told me this was Vermentino I would have believed you. Very nice and yes @Brendan Devine it’s natty. — 7 months ago
Probably the best Chianti we’ve had. — a year ago
A nice golden color with a tart aroma of apple-lemon and minerality. Flavors of minerals, chalk, smoke, and flint. It also has a slight salty taste. Quite nice. — 2 years ago
