A little anise on the nose. Great balance, abundant but soft tannins.

CVed 3/16/17 Nebbiolo comp. High tone cherry notes on nose though still a bit closed. Acidic and firm on palate with tannins and good body with good length. Opened 11/21/17. Drinking very well. Cherry notes and elegance and liveliness. Upping 1 point to 9.2.

Dark cherry & balsamico. Power & grace working together. Ovello always delivers.

Pretty but not overwhelming. My dining companion liked this a lot more than I did, think my palate was just off. Violets and licorice on the nose and great acidity.

Has a lot of underlying potential but alcohol seems way too present at the moment. Hoping it integrates better over the next few yeads

More heat and sweetness. Not as elegant as Ovello but seems a bigger wine. Finish also long but more black fruits. Gordons tasting #12

So, being in Piemonte during wine and truffle harvest, everything is better. The slow food, the truffles and of course the nebulous Nebbiolo. This expression of Barbaresco makes one wonder if you can ever really enjoy another wine.
