I could split hairs and find imperfections but it is tough to beat this at $30 a bottle

Accessible Barolo ready to go, fairly bright focus clean without a whole lot of depth or complexity but fine with some Swedish meatballs

Red Kool-Ade and burnt plum skins with toasty citrus notes and sherry trifle aromas. Also, hints of cherry blossom. Medium mouthfeel with chewy tannins emerge behind a curtain of said Kool-Ade and smoked citrus peel laden bitters in flat cola, Pure cocoa, clove and and cinnamon bark. Remember "suicide sodas"? Strap on your oral roller skates while this lovely wine aims it's tannic lasers right at the disco ball you call your heart, and while the flickering flavor bubbles of your taste buds alternate to the rhythmic complexities watch in awe as it gyrates suggestively across your amazed mouth.
