I was simply mesmerized by this 2010 Pio Cesare Barolo (WWB, 94) which showed considerably better on the second day. While only an infant now, this displays wonderful red rose, red raspberry cordial, blood orange zest, and sweet tobacco with leather flavors. The weight and verve of this Barolo really entices, particularly once the tannins begin to settle. This great Pio Cesare will age gracefully for many decades. Drink 2019-2035- 94

Tighter than a nun’s ass... great potential though!

Too young but it was by far the most interesting half bottle on the list so I gave it a shot. Definitely on the beefier end of the Barolo scale with woody tannins and dark stone fruit. Certainly opened up with some air but I should know better than to order young Barolo...

Infanticide. Very tight. It never even had time to open up.

The heat really kills this one. There are notes of spice, vanilla, and little bit if smoke. It's a bone dry red but the heat ruins any beauty that this #wine might portray. This is not a high quality #barolo.
