Leather, smoked sage, fennel, rosemary with bitter orange, tart cherry and tons of spice. Very classic expression of La Morra with a dollop of new oak slapped on top.

Still my favourite grape. Great expression of a Barolo.

Too young needs time to settle down tannins and acid on fleek.

Distinct liquorice and tobacco. Light body with a fine, beautiful dryness. Praise barolo!

This wine is awesome. Decanted for two hours. Cherry and blackberry. Very smooth finish.

A bit more modern Barolo than I might prefer but with nice body and color. A bit too much coffee and chocolate / mocha. Still good dark fruits, anis / licorice and tar. Served with a New York Strip steak, sautéed spinach and sautéed mushrooms. Interestingly, bottle label says 2007, cork is stamped 2006.

Still some grip here, but sippable without food. Beautiful expression of roses, licorice, and a hint of leather. Could age more but you wouldn't regret opening it now. Definitely heat so I would be wary of making this an aperitif

Youthful, with not too aggressive tannins for a Barolo. Just enough tar & roses.
