What a great wine. Still could use some time even. Great nose, great color, great palate, great balance. Eating with sauteed tripe with spicy red sauce.

Nice cherries, slightly leathery & woody, more earthy than the 04, 06 we tasted at Borgogno.

Another bottle of Borgogno Barolo going down the drain. Maybe someone secretly filled my bottles with shitty vinegar.

Best way to prep for Piemonte? Barolo at home!

Mature, traditional Barolo. Worth the time and investment.

One of the best wines we've served by the glass this year... Dried crushed rose petals, slightly dried semi-sweet tobacco and ripe concentrated cherry and purple plum. Decant this beauty and let rest 1hour+ before serving.

Better with an hour of air, dark fruit, tar, charcoal - medium/large body.
