This wine is old enough to drink itself. And it should, because it's fucking awesome. On it's last revolution, but holding strong. Hard to put into words the specialness of tonight. A woman I poured it for said "I know what happened in the 1930s." She turned out to be from the 1910s. I told her "Barolo speaks directly to my brain."

I think this wine has healing powers. Truly. Like drinking from a spring.

This felt like looking up a mountain that ends above the clouds. Could not scale this wine tonight, but tomorrow...

This bottle was outstanding. Opened with a rusty hue but 4 hours in the decanter and the color came back ruby red and the classic Nebbiolo notes were abounding. Dare I say it was even fresh at times. This ethereal wine has more years ahead. But it was outstanding tonight. An absolute stunner.

Anniversary dinner- wine was brilliant and my wife looking beautiful. Tar and roses on volume eleven. Pure joy in a glass.

This was rich and powerful with dried red cherry, leather, blood orange, truffle and rose petal becoming more elegant over time.

Plenty of structure and potential! Should certainly be decanted - needs at least two hours. But so balanced and ethereal. Am excited to revisit in 5 years!
