Second young Barolo from Serralunga which I have had recently. Really approachable. Good tannic structure. Fresh. Nice acidity.

Took 3 hrs to really open after decant. Citrus, coffee and leather on the nose, cocoa, blackberry, anise on the palette. Could hang on 3-4 more years easily

Popped and poured; consumed over two days. Dark cherries, tar, black tea and wet rocks. Tart black cherries and black berries. Plenty of structure to last. Came across just a touch hot on the second day.
