Desiccated red fruits, mocha, dark chocolate with dried tomato leaves. The structure is quite soft for a Barolo. Modern style.

very good first sip, very balanced and not heavy. im not a huge fan of barolo but this definitely surprised me. great for multiple people. not terribly complicated but round tannins and a tabacco on the taste and herb on the nose.

All around great. First sip tasted like honeycomb. Great balance of tannins and fruit. Aftertaste could have been better on a few sips. Paired with lasagna & enjoyed thoroughly.

Pretty darn yummy for a Barolo under $18. Taste of tobacco, cherry, oak and grippy tannins.

8.7 compared to other Barolo's, but I'd say an 8.9 for QPR.. Pretty decent for only $25, has all the right stuff including earthyness, leather, ripe red fruit tones, and acidity, only lacking the floral aroma and a touch of tannin, not bad though for a newcomer to the grape.

Subtle dry roses and tea leaves. Tar complex, with strong minerals

Nebbiolo is a great grape. Good wine, not as lasting ad I’d like. Still tasty.

Light-bodied, fruit forward but left me wanting. Definitely better with food (scallops & couscous with onions/peppers) but would prefer something more complimentary.

Smells like prune jam.

Touch of nail polish, non sulphured fruit cake fruits, earthy licorice root. This wine tastes as if it’s been slowly filtered through a long, wooden cedar maze. This finishes long with the tiniest bit of acidity.

A good year, a good price, a gamble. It worked out well.
