The best bottle of the 1971 I have ever had. Tremendous fruit intensity, power and depth, with none of the barnyard flavors that afflict many bottles. What fine, aged Barolo from this era is all about. Superb.

Slightly cloudy. Shrill sour cherry. Lovely purity. Bright and lifted fruit.

Finally had my aha moment with this wine. Pristine bottle from a stunning vintage. Thrilled and privileged to try such a great example. A revelation for me.

Visceral love. Bone marrow, roasted chestnuts, acidity still alive.

Eight hours slowly aired and then decanted off heavy sediment. Just brilliant orange and ruby hues. Soaring aromas and a silky feel. What a treat.

With seven hours using the Audoze method the 71 was quite excellent though did not live upto its billing.
