Reddish tawny color. Opaque. Enticing nose. Notes of rose petals, black cherries, cigar and dark soil. Silky with strong impact in the mouth. Seems young. With air the impact grows. Great showing.

Tawny and translucent. Cherry, red rose, tea, anise, some tar and moist black soil. Rich and velvet in the mouth. In a great spot. Gonna pair nicely with a truffle dinner tonight.

1990 vintage showing very nicely, with extraordinarily grippy tannins! Telltale tar with dried violets, bright sour cherries, and a robust earthiness.

Bright sour cherries, robust and alive, with a full, earthy body. A classic Barolo but without overwhelming tar. What was also memorable were the tannins - remarkably grippy. They did not want to let go! A vibrant yet rounded wine. 1990 vintage.

Really stunning and layered, drinking beautifully now but will age and age.

Ripe fruit with some stewed notes. Loads of incense and celery seed.

Awesome older Barolo nose, still young though.

Needs time but tannins dusty. Will it become an old school classic? Hard to say...
