How can a wine smell simultaneously of leather and spring flowers? It’s earthy, with forest floor, plus a fresh scent like daffodils and violets. Also: anise and crushed basil adding spicy top notes. The finish is tea and flowers. An accessible and light-textured Barolo, ready to drink now. 14% abv | $35 (sample)

From 375ml. Light red berries with a hint of spice. Light oak and well managed tannins.

More evolution than I expected. Still sound but perhaps better a year ago. Barolo Lecinquevigne is a blend of Nebbiolo from five vineyards; Barolo, Verduno, Grinzane Cavour, La Morra and Novello. Sweet strawberries, orange notes, roses, leather, tobacco, and subtle hints of violets and tar. Nice pair with Cari's lasagna.

Reasonably simple but pretty well priced.

Nice, 10 year old Barolo. Unfolding nicely.

All these '10s seem to have such soft fruit up front. But still balanced with tannins and acidity.

Well it is Friday again and I am going to northwest Italy to have a bottle of.Barolo. On the nose we get some good dark plum, cassis, tobacco, camp fire smoke and wet soil. The palate brings me good dark fruit, sweet tobacco, licorice, an acid bite, tannins that give that nice drying feeling and a good finish that lasts. I would be more than happy to purchase this bottle again.

Lighter, approachable and pleasant. The latest 4 vintages have been pretty consistent.

Medium garnet core with thinning on the edges. Nose is a bit dark and tight with notes of strawberries and roses. A touch of earthiness too. Soft attack with moderate tannins (6.5/10) that hit mid palate. Interesting with a light body. Similar notes on the palate with something like tar in the medium finish. Drink till 2020.

Intense black cherries. Rustic astringency. Delicious. Just add time.
