Nice tannins mid palate that fade. Blackberry, black licorice, black plum that has a mouthwatering quality up front and a smooth finish. TBL

Pale ruby with orange rim. Aromatic, Tart and ripe red fruit: sour cherry, raspberry, pomegranate, some blackberry, def VA, lifted fruit and floral note: Roses, violets. On the palate there is amaro-like bitter smell, tar with notes of gravel and wet stone. Some oxidation-dried out quality. No new oak, but definitely some old, large botti or something similar. Grippy tannins. Long finish. A thing of beauty.

Generally love most Barolos, but this one is special. Menthol, graphite and lavender aromas give way to beautiful cherry, licorice and baking spice flavors. Leather and tobacco notes on the very long finish. Tannins are refined. Light garnet color. Fresh acidity keeps the wine in beautiful balance. Brilliant!!!

There is not enough lively acidities and tannic grip to provide support, texture and definition for the aromas that are dominated now by old wood and lack detail and focus. Some people like its relaxed, unforced style but the winemaking is not as accomplished as those from Roagna, Cavallotto and Oddero. After 24 hours, the aroma dissipates to reveal the tertiary notes and the tannins come forward.
