Juicy and good right from the open... Not dusty at all

Quite a recent vintage for a Barolo of this size and weight but showing well with a lovely balance of sour cherry, tar, roses & with the classic high acid but ripe tannic finish. Typical weight & depth from Serralunga and a lovely example from a benchmark producer.

Rich and full with dark cherry and berry fruit, it finishes with firm earthy tannins. Very good.

Powerful tannins, could use some time in the bottle. Ripe and dry

Light at the outset with cherries, and rich and dry tannins with touch of leather and cocoa that persists on the tongue. Really nice to drink with yummy prosciutto and other Italian cuisine favorites

Not your typical Barolo. This one may have passed it’s peak. Lighter bodied with equally light dusty tannins then I have noted from prior vintages of this wine. Light garnet color with some orange on the rim. Dark cherries with notes of earth and tobacco. Hints of brown leaves/Forrest Floor with a touch of vanilla on the finish. Still complex and very drinkable, but I was expecting more. Revisited this wine in June 2020. Thought it was a bit better. This bottle had a Bigger texture and fuller body.

Decent Barolo. I don’t see this improving much. Softened cherry fruit. Some licorice. Tartness. Softer tannins. Not complex. Did not really improve on Day 2. Don’t see more time helping this one.

This is a Young Boy. Could use some time in a Cantina. Very well balanced though. I imagine this, in ten years, will be an absolute beast. Love Piemonte.
