From a Coravin, and perhaps a bit oxidized. Regardless, a bit underwhelming.

Gorgeous wine, old school winemaking and white textbook. Amazing tannin that draws long through the palate

This is 30, and Edgar is my spirit guide. Beautiful fruit, nice acid, and the perfect amount of funk. 👌

Very classic example of Barolo with good fresh fruit and a woodsy, cedar undertone

A little on the fruity side but light on its feet and great aromatics. Superb value Barolo.

Not to sound like Robert Parker but this was hard, lean, and frightfully acidic.
