Very structured and tight. A touch of heat on the nose and finish. Traditional style. This will need time.

Open cork, close it back, and drink 3 days later. Don’t waste a sip before. Not a joke.

Happy to be out of the routine. In Isle of Palms SC. This wine is without question a baby and I feel a bit ashamed to end its slumber. Rosey with tall tannins. Excellent but better later.

The post COVID slump buster. Classic Barolo profile - cherries, dried rose, deep tannins. Tight on day 1. But love that I can have a glass, recork bottle and know it’ll taste even better the next day.

Liked this a lot, structured that needs more time to resolve some of its tannin structure with notes of cherry, floral, rose petal, spice & tar

Balanced, smooth, light aroma, pairs well with red and vodka sauce pasta dishes.

One of my all time favourite producers with excellent wines from cheap right up to the big boy Villero riserva. This wasn't quite up to the 2015 as there is still too much unbalanced acidity for me. Will even out in the next 2-3 years and make for a great wine
