Quite a recent vintage for a Barolo of this size and weight but showing well with a lovely balance of sour cherry, tar, roses & with the classic high acid but ripe tannic finish. Typical weight & depth from Serralunga and a lovely example from a benchmark producer.

Rich and full with dark cherry and berry fruit, it finishes with firm earthy tannins. Very good.

Powerful tannins, could use some time in the bottle. Ripe and dry

Decent Barolo. I don’t see this improving much. Softened cherry fruit. Some licorice. Tartness. Softer tannins. Not complex. Did not really improve on Day 2. Don’t see more time helping this one.

This is a Young Boy. Could use some time in a Cantina. Very well balanced though. I imagine this, in ten years, will be an absolute beast. Love Piemonte.
