Shockingly old tasting. Maderized fruit. I’m guessing poorly stored.

Beautiful and super refined, silky and totally transparent, this belongs to the most Burgundian expressions of Barolo I’ve ever encountered. As far from over extraction as you could possibly get. Dangerously accessible already.

Shows well for the vintage. Tar, earth and lean red fruit. Note of smoky tobacco and a smooth tannic finish.

Birthday wine, part one. Showing well and the structure is much more subtle...in a very good spot. Rose petal and tar.
