Dark garnet with just the slightest tinge of brick on the rim. The nose was toasty with white truffles, rose petals, licorice and cigar smoke. The tannins were Uber fine with a silky texture. In the mouth ripe raspberries mingle with cherries, tobacco, coffee and dried herbs. The finish is long and hints of tar and crushed stone. A beautiful wine with another 10+ years of aging potential.

Total masculine approach. Pretty violet and cherry nose into a rich yet soft mouthfeel of truffle and light tar. Still very young as no bricking on the wine, tannins are firm and acid still high. Pretty wine that can age well 10-20 years

Needs WAY more time. All of the ones I’m posting do tbh.

Lots of tannins. High acidity too. Green. Medium bodied. Young. I think this gets better 5 years out.

Dusty roses, dusty tannins. I was at a wine bar in Hoboken where the workers didn’t seem very interested in wine. Worked to my benefit though because their pours were HUGE. I ended up with what was basically a double pour of this. Works for me!

From a day open mag: Dried, dusty red fruit. Plum and prune. Petrol and tar...and is that roses? Of course it is. Correct and great for the price.

Popped and poured; consumed over six hours. This was a really pleasant surprise...not that I should be expecting a bummer from Mauro Molino but when I consider that I paid sub $30 for a 2013 Barolo, I guess I set my expectations to "reasonable". Well, this exceeded those expectations with aplomb. A mix of dark and red fruits bursting from the glass along with tar and roses. Primary notes dominate. Abundant yet edgy fruit on the palate and unmistakably Barolo with loads of structure to carry this deep into the next decade. It gained some weight after about an hour in the glass and drank very well until the last sip six hours later. Killer with pasta alla Bolognese. Drink now or hold.

Slight funk on the nose. Dry, razor thin texture makes way to a cheek gripping astringency that dissipates into a surprisingly gentle finish.
