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.

Quality Vietti Barolo.. pale red with explosive dried berries and earthy traits. Medium bodied wine that flows around the back of the palate. A total delight to consume with pasta.

Nice wine. Bold, dry, loaded with tannins. 30 minute decant softened a bit.
