Open bouquet immediately but mostly forest floor and dusty nose. All out of whack on the palate and tasted strongly of iron! After one hour or two open, extremely beautiful aromas of violets and flowers filled the glass, while the earthier truffle smelling ones remained in the background. After 6-7 hours the wine was soft and supple but still with plenty of acid and dark fruits and that minerally iron like finish. Amazing transformation although I think still a little too young due to acid ... only 13,5% alcohol! Intriguing wine #barolo #borgogno #reserve #piedmontwines

wow😱🍷😀...what an amazing wine...really spetacular!! Dark orange color pretty homogeneous. At the nouse, strong black olives flavor along with subbtle fig/red fruits and leather. Extremelly powerful in mouth, again with black olives, complex and subtle metalic flavor. Perfect balance with strong and remarkable tannins with a long end in mouth. Spetacular vintage 1961!!
