Seemingly higher than normal tannins (H+), dusty rose and cherry, light body... almost on the watery side. Likely a house style that is unique. Lovely for certain, but the opposite of the over-extracted Barolos you might be used to. Even though this is a sought-after 2013, it’s not an early drinker like some others... 5-10+ years should improve this wine.

Suddenly this is drinking very well. Looking forward to following this for a few years.

OOH HEAVEN IS A PLACE ON EARTH. This vintage is showing beautifully! What an elegant, well-balanced wine! Drink now or save forever and it'll still be delicious.

Amazingly fresh & vibrant. Haunting! Hard to beat classic Barolo with age. Chambolle silk meets tar & roses.
