Palate has sweet cherry, licorice, dried tart cherries, dried strawberries, great acid/fruit tension, medium tannins with a fantastic never-ending finish. What a great example of the ultimate mountain Nebbiolo!

Such a sick nose. Spice, cherries and so delicate and linear. Gorgeous chestnut. Stunningly mineral. Really really impressive aromas. 13’s coming into their own. Just such lift here. Palate is so juicy and has that insane core of 2013 fruit. Complex with terrific texture and velvety sweet tannins. So pure and deep. Awesome structure and length. Just a brilliant bottle of Barolo. Really terrific. Structure getting more noticeable as it airs out — 8 days ago
