Cherry aroma. Bright acidity and unripe red plum.
Thin texture, lightly grippy tannins that linger.

Elegant, approachable Barolo. Florals and cherries throughout. As much acidity to the structure as there is tannin. Picks up weight & complexity with dinner (roast leg of lamb) and air. Excellent.

A big al and tannic Barolo. 9 years hasn’t tamed this. Probably needs more time in the bottle. Initial taste wasn’t great. But after some air, fruit was more discernible. Still, kind of raw and wild. I liked it. But not sure I would buy again.
