Terrific wine to cap off team drinks. Rose, tar, lavender, gorgeous structure, backbone, intense yet surprisingly light. If you were to do a word-cloud of what an excellent 2010 Barolo should be like, the large lettered words would be the tasting note here. It is an exemplar of quality for its type.

Terrific. Clearly young but even now this wine is astounding. Dark cherries and flowers. Just the right amount of tannin and oak to coat your palate for a lengthy finish. So many years ahead of it, but a stunner today.

Drinking Barolo with the man himself, from one of my consistently favorite producers. With a firm, but dusty tannic backdrop, the wine seduces with an ethereal rose petal, dried violet aroma while smoke and licorice inform the long finish. Fabulous, structured, and while still nascent, it’s fabulously captivating today.

Nice Barolo. A little lighter than I was expecting. Tasted great with steak.

Hugely tannic. Floral on end. First. Dinner with Jess and Greg!

Softer and more feminine with a modern flare. Would have guessed Barbaresco.

Smooth with dark currant and vanilla throughout. Tastes far older than its age would suggest.
