I believe that this is my 2nd bottle, but I must not have posted notes the first time around. The color is uncharacteristically medium (almost deep) ruby with a garnet rim. White pepper, licorice, cedar, and muted red and black fruit on the nose with medium intensity. On the palate, the wine is of course dry with a medium body, medium plus alcohol (14.5), and medium plus dry tannins. The flavor profile is developing, and we know this is young-- but already the black cherry (with it's medium plus acidity) is giving way to a more baked version. Whatever detectable wood there is forms the "crust" of this old cherry pie. In time, I suspect this Barolo will generate tertiary leather and dirt-- it is indeed destined for greatness. I will do my best to not open bottle number 3 at least for another year--but dont hold your breath however. 94 points

My new love in Barolo vineyards, from Novello and some Nebbiolo Rosé, amazing nose, but not ready at all, just nice to try.

Earthy, full-flavored yet very drinkable.
