Not familiar with the producer but found this to be open, very approachable, and generous in its fruit given the age. Sweet spices, sandalwood, dried cherries, sarsaparilla.

This is first bottle of wine I bought for the purpose of aging. I bought it about 10 years ago and I'm opening it today on my 30th birthday. This is the best birthday Barolo I've ever had.

Raspberry, new leather, and minerality come together in a tense and firm wine. Give it another 2-3 years to soften the tannin some amd repeat!

Great tobacco and old leather couch! Surprisingly fresh and together for an 03! Thanks Alessandro for a great tour; you're a rockstar!
