A nose of compost heap. Not promising. On the palate there’s are things to like. Bacon fat, soft faded cherry. Mint. Just ok

Served blind. Loved it and yet another bottle proving that Paola Rinaldi nailed the vintage. Not for the long haul but already beautiful.

2013. Immediate and delicious. A lot of fun right now with a mid term life ahead. Delicious bright fruit. Well balanced. Not too ripe. Tannins are there but soft. Great drinking

Somewhat aggressive tannins on the finish as its fruit does not really fight back. Classic style. Definitely not a beginner’s kind of Barolo, but classy and elegant.

Fire🔥🔥🔥 gotta double decant 4 to 8 hours ahead of time !! Integrated beautifully after a few hours. Dusty fruit still healthy acidity with nice tobacco and pepper note. Has years ahead of it. Love these 67s

Pales compared to 2010 and 2013, but still damn hard to resist.
