Fun to visit as a counter balance to the Rhônes but it was drinking pretty tight. Great producer but this is a hold for now.

Classic Barolo here with violets, licorice, tar and dried plum with a spicy finish. Tannins are firm but approachable.

WNH event number two. Rhône varietal wines with TX BBQ...a match made in Heaven!

This was one of the leftover bottles from the Italian night yesterday. This tastes so young...impeccable structure. Very floral nose of rose petals and candied cherries. Red clay, herbs de Provence, cherry tobacco on the palate. Decant for a few hours if opening now. Another beauty from

From a vintage that generally drinks well at this early stage. This is showing everything its got even without much secondary development.

This is still a baby. Dried florals, dark cherry, plum, tar, tea leaf and blood orange. Powerful structure - high acid and tannin - with a dense core of fruit just waiting to unfurl. Immense length here though too giving such depth.

The nose is so elegant with rose, tar, dried red fruits, savory earth and smoked meat. Massive structure with chewy tannin. Some black tea on the finish. Great potential but also approachable now. Love it!

A model of finesse and understatement, the 2008 Barolo Le Vigne is every bit as thrilling as it has always been. At nearly 10 years of age, the 2008 is still bright, precise and very fresh. Sweet red cherry, rose petal and mint notes are beautifully sketched in a Barolo that is pure and total class. In 2008, vineyard sources are Vignane, Merli, Ceretta and Conterni.

Showing beautifully with plenty of life left. Still young with lots bright red fruits. Strong cherry with some hints of tobacco, leather, and blackcurrant. Chewy and a long finish.

Happy V Day!
