Expensive ($60-90ish depending on your location) but worth it. Young at 6 years after harvest, but better the 2nd day. Not even the slightest perceptible flaw, this is a bright sour cherry Barolo that will certainly improve with time in bottle. Changes in the glass over time, this is a balanced traditionally-produced bottle.

Intense and fine grained. Dark fruit with inky intensity. Very pretty high tones but still quite unresolved. Good future ahead

aromas of pine, roses, black cherry & raspberry (fresh & candied), cinnamon and peppered salami ~ starts like glycerin examples of the fruits followed by plush tannins of the spices and licorice ~ drank over two nights~ still young ~ Bravo!

Cherry fruit, leather and tar. Richness and tannin. Acid a bit less than expected.

This bottle was a bit closed, and seemed like it would re-emerge in a year or so. Also drank the 2012 the same night, which was much more fun.

Tasted via Coravin as part of Capital Grille's by the glass program. Bright, plenty of energy, red fruits and minerals. Sustains on the palate, decent complexity. Good acidity makes it food friendly.

Very closed nose compared to Oddero Villero. Nose is more focused, restrained and lots of tobacco leaves and smoky component. Huge structure with chewy tannins. Slight bitter finish.

Nicely structured tannins, black figs, truffles, tea leaves and a bit of chocolate

Subdued notes of raspberry and vanilla, a bit mushy with bramble overtones. Lacked energy. A maker I haven’t had in years but I found this deep in my locker and pulled it. The enormous endowment pictured with the bottle really wanted to pose for a photo.....but as the evening progressed things went a little sideways—she fell on her big heels coming back from the bathroom and is now restlessly asleep on my couch. Nice person, less than optimum constitution. I don’t like to babysit.

Delicious young barolo, very vivid rose, tar cherry and menthol nose, caramel touches now on day 2, ripe but with enough acidity, plenty of tannin and flowers on palate. Developing slight meaty aroma, long and flavorful. Well-made in a tough year! 2009 Vintage.
