2010 vintage. Tre Tine. Medium ruby hue. Nose is quite tight and reticent at first. After an hour of decanting, the beauty of this wine shines through. Perfumed, black fruits and spices with hints of wood shavings. Still very youthful without tertiary aromas. Vibrant. On the palate, very bright acidity creates an angular wine with some muscular definition. Medium minus body. Alcohol feels more 12.5% than the 14% on the bottle. Tannins are Fine and ripe. Concentration is deep but refined and not over powering - balanced. Finish is fairly long. Surprisingly light and elegant wine that nonetheless has a powerful underbelly. This wine has a very long journey ahead of it. Drink now until 2035+.

So happy to have tried a Barolo that was made to age, and age gracefully it did.

Completely shut when opened, took an hour or so to start to open. Hallmark brunate dark iron fruit. Tannins firm, the last glass was the best. Will wait a few years before I try the next

Beautiful. Deep and rich but not heavy in the least. Maybe a touch too much caramel in the final finish.

Had to be an off bottle. Stewed fruit, monolithic.
