Looking so good today; vivid aromatics of rose petal, leather, anise, almond skin and tart red fruit. Tannins are approachable, acidity well integrated & length is okay but perhaps what holds it back but super enjoyable to drink.

Needs substantial time and/or air but shaping up to be a classic. Naturally the last sip (on day 2) was the best. Gorgeous red fruit, spice, florals and a bit of orange oil. Elegant given time to open up.

Surrounded by ripping vintages the 14 is often overlooked but this is a ripper. So lithe and pure. Florality, raw almond, red fruits, slight leather and anise. Lacey tannins and watery acidity. Ripper

Aromatic dried red & purple flowers, and dried earth. A bruiser.

Delicious traditionally-produced Barolo... integrated tannins, well-balanced, tart cherry flavors with violets. Delicious, and enjoyable in its youth.

This is gorgeous, needs time, really opened up after 4 hours of air. Nose is joy. Earth, currants, herbs, menthol, tobacco box, cherry syrup.
