Ive tried multiple vintages from this producer and I enjoy his style...from Capalot cru, 2012 is shaping up perfectly. From La Morra, Super floral, red tart cherries, black tea, slight leather, tannin and acid high. The mix of big ole barrel and 1/3 new french oak barriques just brings it to whole amazing level.. seek out this producer if you can...

For those who like more aromatic and floral Barolo's, this one's for you. And yet, this is not a shy Barolo: very big violet, menthol, sage, and tobacco, coupled with cherry-almond fruit. But, nothing over-extracted here. This may be the perfect expression of fruit from the beautiful commune of La Morra. Wonderful. Could hold for 10+ years, but delicious now with air. SommSelect

Young. A little leaner style too. Will be better in 3 to 5 but I’m guessing this vintage will always need food for real enjoyment. SS

Insanely good communal Barolo. With decanting the tart bing cherry and grilled herb notes melt into a great glass. Seek this out
