From taste: lovely piercing orange liqueur and wildflower aroma, cardamom and cinnamon, intoxicating, clear and beautiful nose. Chalky minerality on palate, fine grained, grippy tannins, great harmony and spicy orange deliciousness. Shows well the softer side of this exuberant vineyard, and of barolo, and exudes excellent balance with a combination of sweet cherry fruit, sophisticated tannin, and zesty acids. Could use more mid-palate punch, but nevertheless a buy and a keeper for 8-12 years. $58.

Brooding, dark and unforgiving. Raspberries, wilted mint, and licorice. It's a good (not great) barolo, but lacks a bit of complexity and finesse for the money-- and also comes across chunky and slightly oxidized.

Smooth with mineral and black pepper notes. Should pair well with prawns and squid ink pasta.

Big, but not overwhelming. Spice and fruit finishing with pleasant tannins. Pretty good.

Great form. But if you own this wine, give it a few more years. For me, tea and black pepper are dominant but there's also leather and licorice, and some stuff I've missed.
