I will say that this is too young & should be cellared for the foreseeable future. It does show some wonderfully deep aromatics showing balsamic & floral notes. A wine you can sniff for hours. Elegant & finessed palate with hints of smoke & a mix of red & black fruit. The structure is obviously prominent in youth, but the balance between power and elegance is something to behold. I'm not sure if I should have opened at this stage, but I feel fortunate to have had this.

Drinking great. A delicious Barolo. Ripe but firm structure with acidity and . finely grained tannins.

Rather warm and on the sweet side, as many 2011. Floral notes, strawberries, wild roses, pomegranate, mild liquorice (Süssholz) & Kirsch. Very round and perfect to drink now. I wonder where this one goes in the next 10+ years..
