Tasty, but was on it's way out. Had over-cooked burnt fudge, sugar plum on the nose with a bit of dried purple flowers. The palate was fading terribly. Only a few seconds of concentration and dissipation was almost immediate. 1997's time has passed for this Barolo. If you have it, you must pop the bottle now and drink...the downward spiral has begun!

Spice, dried leaves, dried flowers. Opens up after 1-2 hours. Still a little young to drink in 2017. Gripping tannins and high acidity.

Good. More of a modern style let t air a bit but you can definitely drink it now. Not as complex and glorious as some of the more expensive barolos I've had but you get what you are paying for. It's not quite totally balanced, a little too chalky for the fruitiness of it. I would go with perhaps a different bottle in the price range of Nebbiolo next time but a fine bottle of wine.
