Usually i would leave a Barolo longer than this (2012) in my cellar but i had a sense this was softer - and it seems like it was the right choice rose petal, brown sugar black fruit jam

With any other meal, the minerality would be at the fore, but with a rare rack of lamb, the minerals are tamed and the fruit notes are heightened. Clear, slightly brick color with hints of ruby. Smells of roses and leather. Incredibly subtle tannins.

This vintage is rustic and reserved. Very little fruit. Advanced color. Aromatics emerge with time in the glass. Nice with pot roast.

Very smooth but not hugely complex

I heard very good things, but didn't measure up as a fine Barolo; quite light actually.

Бензольные тона и ягодки, но в сумме не та интересно. Есть дисбаланс.

Seems light on opening; slightly bitter note prevents full enjoyment at first but with 1-2 hrs of air exposure this subsides, complexity becomes clearer. Expect 3-6 years to peak? At $30 I'm getting more.
