This was a delicious fastball right down the middle of the plate, as far as Barolo goes…and when considering that we’re working with the 2014 vintage, this was especially noteworthy. Dark cherry, alpine herbs, tar, minerals, and black licorice were predominate. A long, lip smacking finish. Again, worked really well with the bison tartar and duck frites.

Acquired from Grasso, this actually contains some of the Runcot Cru vineyard that was declassified and the single vineyards skipped in 2014. Surprised at how ripe the fruit is in the glass

Very good, but lacks the liveliness and magic, along with the length and resonance. Has the authentic aromas but feels two-dimensional.
