Hmmmm. I know this is a great Domaine and was excited to taste this Barolo. But this 9 year old wasn’t even close to ready. Still so astringent and a relatively short finish. Also these babies are so devoid of fruit it takes a special sensitivity to appreciate them. Just not sure I have the patience to buy and wait as long as it takes.

Super ripe fruit and still acts like a baby ... A wonderful hint of soy, plum and dark peeper. This wines finish lasts for like 4 minutes ... I adore it

Not your beautiful, lace like, echoey Nebbiolo. This one is stone built with a minimum of moving parts.

Star of the show, quite approachable for such a young Barolo. Delicate and elegant in the notes, though tannins suggest it's still got some time to integrate. Leaves a certain salinity in the mouth that makes you want more

Another old world style producer that has reached its peak but will hold for another 10 years.
