Drank 5/22/19. Decent paiting with grilled lamb chops.

Fragrant nose of violets, rose petals, cherry, and a hint of truffle. A slight, musty library book scent blows off after an hour. Muted palate, with tar, earth, red and black cherry that are backed by firm tannins, which are still quite aggressive at 9 years of age. Long, dry finish dominated by tar and sour cherry. . This improved after a couple of hours. It is drinkable, but I would decant, or age another 2-5 years.

4/30/7/3/5 +50 =89 pts.

Hazelnuts and crushed berry seeds a strong nose, and one that reflect this area very well.

Bright at the front, sharp with pomegranate,
raspberry, hints of almond, Thai basil, root
, Fresh gunpowder tea.
A big wine that is still not tempered by time. Strapping tannins, a large presence in the glass, and a standing ovation from the crowd.
Could have used another 10 years. Yum.

Still young but chewy tannins, full body lot of potential need a little bit of age to soften

Nose has pencil lead, straw and some dark fruit. Palate leads with graphite, followed by black currant and cassis. Tannins a bit chewy. Missing a bit of the depth I would have expected but still very good.

Packs a real punch but not in a great way. Found it to have this charcoal or ash type quality that is way too pronounced and drowns everything else out . Acidity is too much. Makes my mouth water in a bad way. Not my style

Great Barolo... Will be even better for around $33 rather than the $100 on the menu here! 😉

Raspberry and cinnamon, young but well balanced and a tremendous wine for the price.

Smells of lilac and had a beautiful volcanic finish.
